    Sorry, I meant Fibro symptoms. Did the EMDR affect Fibro in any way? Thanks.

    Fibro Fibro and EMDR

    For those who suffer from Fibro and have gone through EMDR, I'd love to hear your experiences. Has EMDR helped relieve symptoms, made them worse or something else? TIA

    I normally don't. The anger took over 😥 and I didn't even realize I was doing it. 😯

    Post-EMDR Processing

    Oooohh! This is a great point! I always feel that it's probably not safe for me to be driving either to or from my sessions. Last week, I found myself driving 75mph in a 45. Probably not safe, but didn't care if anything happened. Considered driving off the road. Glad to hear the virtual...

    Post-EMDR Processing

    I am reading all of this with so much interest as I'm currently considering switching therapists to one that is more trauma-focused and offers EMDR. Thanks to everyone for sharing. The more I read, the more I believe there is hope that I won't be stuck for the rest of my life. Is anyone doing...

    Should I switch to an EMDR therapist?

    Thanks for the responses. I will talk to my T on Monday. I know I can't be, but I am impatient and just want to push through to get to the other side of these raw emotions that have been brought to the surface. It seems that we've opened up Pandora's box but haven't had a chance to find...

    Should I switch to an EMDR therapist?

    I've been working with a counselor for a few months now and although I like and trust her, I'm not sure I am getting what I need. When I look at her profile, there's not really anything about focusing on trauma and no EMDR. There is another counselor in my area whose bio makes it seem like we...

    Tips for a very kinesthetic learner

    Luckily, my therapist is constantly reminding me that we need to take baby steps. I'm the one who is pushing to get it over with. She and you are probably right though, gentle bumps. I'm actually heading down to feed the horses now. I'll make sure to take a moment to give them all nose kisses 💕...

    Tips for a very kinesthetic learner

    I'm 49 and the trauma started while I was in the womb. Decades of repression. Decades of not understanding why I could never truly feel happy no matter how many great things were in my life. Decades of thinking about therapy, but avoiding it because of the experiences I had in college when I was...

    Tips for a very kinesthetic learner

    I'm wondering if it was a bad idea to start therapy. Everything is getting worse. I can't pretend to be "normal" right now and don't want to put my hubby through any of it. I'm holding it in because I don't want him to get sick of me and my moodiness. I wish I could go back to having the...

    Tips for a very kinesthetic learner

    Thank you for all of your comments. I've read them all and definitely appreciate you sharing. I got the perfect ball to throw at the wall today...just the right weight and bounce. My arm and shoulder will be sore tomorrow. @Kitty and Sparrow you absolutely should try to find an equine therapy...

    Tips for a very kinesthetic learner

    As someone who is very hands-on and action-oriented, I'm really struggling with the typical therapy of sitting and talking through things. I'm so sick of reading about meditation, mindfulness, breath work, bio feedback, etc. Those things are all great when I'm in a less agitated mood, but lately...

    Scared of bosses, co-workers and clients/customers: What type of work?

    @grit I'm so happy for you! I actually thought of dog walking/sitting and had business cards and t-shirts made. I put ads on the local FB sites and gave cards to the vets and groomers in the area. In 4 months, I have had exactly zero calls. Not a single one. So, with most things I try, I gave...

    Scared of bosses, co-workers and clients/customers: What type of work?

    I've worked in the horse industry for about 20 years. It has always been pretty much my life. Other than horses, I'm not sure what else interests me. I have a farm with 3 horses so I'll be busy maintaining all of it once the weather warms up.

    Scared of bosses, co-workers and clients/customers: What type of work?

    Due to my cpstd issues, I am always anxious about working for others or having clients/customers. Any little bit of criticism and I feel like I'm a failure or that they're mad at me and hate me. If clients leave or I don't get great reviews, I feel like I've let everyone down. No matter what job...
