Help, now I'm really nervous! I am used to not getting prompt replies...I wrote some questions to the MD I see twice and never heard back. I sent out letters to 7 people on the EMDR list asking if they take insurance and generally explaining that I would like to try EMDR if they think it is appropriate. The letters would not have gotten there till yesterday and today I had one reply at work and another message when I got home! I don't know any of these people and it makes me really nervous to talk to them. How do I know which person (and I may get more replies) is right? I don't know why I am so nervous.

The person I spoke to is the person who has trained most of the EMDR practicioners in NH. He was part of a research project at Harvard and was out at the Oaklahoma Bombing to direct therapy efforts there for trauma victims. He seemed nice on the phone but told me he no longer struggles with ins. co's--I would have to recoup the money on my own. He did say there were 2 other people in his practice (a Cog Beh practice) whom he has trained that do work with insurance. I asked about billing for 2 therapy visits in one day and he said most ins co won't accept 2 in one day. He gave me the # of the secretary and the name of the other person to contact. My ins will change to a more restrictive one in Jan so I have 2 visits left--one set upthis Sat. with the therapist I have been seeing. She said she would be willingto contact ins co to transfer the visits. If I call and cancel (she is off for the holidays) in the hopes of getting a visit before Jan 1 I may totally lose out. I guess I feel comfortable with her (perhaps since she is comforting but not challenging) and it's scary to move on to something else.

The other person just said he would call back tomorrow (another cog/beh group). I need some support here. It's that old fear of I don't know what-- coming up again. It's terrible. I don't understand why it's so unnerving for me. Some of the problem is the short time to figure this all out. I keep feeling like they will wonder why I'm coming in because I wasn't in a bombing etc. I guess if may be related to that feeling of just not ever measuring up in any way when I was young. Like whatever the qualifications are (trauma?) they I must not be worthy. ??? Help?
