> DL: Do you have someone who can stay with you for a while? If not, be assured that dreams helped me understand what may have been the root cause of the depression. That understanding was worth the nightmares!

No one to stay, but thank you so much for caring! I think I could handle the dreams if they happen since it would mean something was untangling and that would be good.

I used to have terrible dreams. When I was little I had a recurring dream where I was running inside a huge dark church type bldg. There was no noise at all. People were lined on both side walls with blank expressions and something terrible was after me. I couldn't see it but I always thought it was a big bear. There was a pit of some kind at the end and I would wake up before I fell in with the monster after me.

WHen I was older I had what I think were dreams, and the therapist I used to see told me they must have been. But it seemed as if they were real. I remembered burying something under the flagstone path, or in the basement. I was terrified that someone would see me or find out because I would be sent to jail for the terrible deed I had done. I used to spend a lot of time wondering about all of this. It seemed real--that I had done something morally and terribly wrong.

> I will say that since that intensive therapy time I have felt sooooo much better and I trust that your EMDR session(s) will be a step in your healing process.

Thank you thank you thank you for the support.
