It was in part because of your experience, Happyflower, that I wanted to find an EMDR therapist. You had given some details of a terrible situation with your mother, but you seemed to be flourishing in your therapy and your life- as if the trauma were really behind you in a way I haven't been able to accomplish in my regular therapy, although there are many so valuable things that have happened there. You're right- she is just teaching me to ground myself in the present, and feel that I have a better abiity to moderate my emotions, before we actually do the EMDR. She has completed her training in it, and really seems to know what she is doing.

Thank you for your response- and to the others who responded also. I appreciate the encouragement more than I can say. It will be a while, but I hope to be able to give the same wonderful report that you have!

She said something interesting today- she thinks that fearfulness (anxiety) comes from abuse, whether emotional, physical or sexual, but that real panic comes from very early experiences of abandonment, and also from feeling emotionally abandonned by everyone when the abuse is occurring.
