Re: Sleep

I wonder if the sleep has changed because of the things you worked on in that first session and now it has been quite awhile in between so all the old stuff got stirred up and is trying to fight its way back to the surface. When that happens, it is hard to get sleep meds to work. About adding other antidepressants to the Remeron, I don't know if it would do you much good right now since you will be trying to work through the painful stuff very actively with the EMDR. That is bound to put your feelings into a chaotic state for awhile. Maybe using something like hydroxyzine or trazodone in very small doses for the anxiety or sleep may attenuate these feelings a little bit, or at least enough for you to function while you continue treatment. I think it would be best to go to a therapist who does EMDR, but even if that's not an option, just doing 3-4 sessions will be worth many many months in regular talk therapy and then whatever time you spend in regular therapy will progress faster than you would normally expect. I just got the new directory from the EMDR association. Here are the cities that list EMDR therapists in New Hampshire (I think NH is right; being southern, I get my New England states confused :) ).
Auburn, Concord, Derry, Exeter, Lebanon, Manchester, Nashua, Plainfield, Plymouth. If any of those are close to you, I will print the names associated with that area so you can explore switching to them when the time comes.
