Thank you for the info. She was told at Menninger Hospital the best treatment was a trauma unit ASAP following the event. She was abused 20 years ago, started with symptoms 4 years ago and has been in therapy since.We(her parents)did not know until last year. Have you had the EMDR therapy? Sorry for saying this but it really sounds too simple to be real. I will pass this on to her and see what she thinks. Her psychiatrist wants her therapist to desensitize their sessions as her symptoms are worse but she really wants to follow what she learned at Menninger. All her discharge summaries end with "prognosis:poor" but we can't accept that. I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has had successful therapy. I can't think of one medication she has not already been on and she either has problems with them or they don't work. Thanks for all you help
God Bless
