gardengirl, Jai Narayan, and probably others I am forgetting.
I posted several months ago about extricating myself from useless therapy with a psychiatrist who in every other way is great. I finally told him that I want to seek therapy from a female who lives in my area. He took it in stride and was actually more concerned with other health problems I am having! He wants copies of all lab work concerning my amenorrhea.

You guys really helped me to get this ball rolling, and I am so grateful. I sometimes don't post because I feel just too down......surely we can all relate to that :(

I have been given the names of several peoplw who apparently do EMDR therapy. I have read a bit about this from other posters. I don't know if it will be for me, but it is worth a shot, because the strong feeling that I never really had the guts to continue in the rat race of the struggling opera singer in New York, has been the cause of great trauma for me. I mean there has been sexual abuse, I have been the victim of a violent crime, I lost someone in the 9/11 attacks.....a whole slew of things, but not one of them affected me like the loss of my career - or rather my deciding to give up my career. That was my very reason for being.
I needen't go on and on, but if anyone has any info or insight about this EMDR stuff, I would really appreciate it. I just am not finding much on the net that isn't trying to sell me a bunch of video tapes!
I see posts about people having one therapist for emdr and another for, I assume, more long term things....Is this necessary and commonplace? Does EMDR entail getting in and out of therapy as fast as one can or is there some leverage and flexibility?

So far the women I have called have been too full to take me, but each refers me to another who uses this technique i never knew exixted until an objective party gave me some references.

Thanks again, and warm hugs to all who are struggling here....and also to those who are moving past the struggles.....
