Every feeling and fear you wrote about are mine, too. I'm very worried about getting better with the EMDR, and losing my T that way, too! He points out that I will be able to come as I feel I need to, for the rest of my/his life. This is re-assuring, but only partially!

We are really struggling with the two worst things- abandonment and abuse. If one isn't unbearable at a given moment, the other is.
I find I really like how intelligent the EMDR therapist is- and how carefully she is preparing me for it. She talks quite a bit to my regular therapist, and I trust this arrangement a lot- it feels very safe and helpful. Whereas, with the art therapist, I felt quite jealous and uneasy about their communications! Chemistry at work..

I've started to look at the EMDR as a (hopefully) valuable adjunct to the ongoing treatment with my analyst. Right now, we are just doing the self-soothing exercises, so that I will have some feeling of control and self-empowerment when we do the actual EMDR, which will involve very painful stuff. I would love to keep you up to date as we go along.
