The therapist told me that if it was going to work, it would be quickly, but even she was surprised that it worked so well. It was one of the things about her that made me really like and trust her.. she didn't believe in stringing me along. She didn't try to hook me into long-term therapy. I really liked that.

And she was really intent on me and focused during the session, asking me lots of questions, having me describe my experiences in detail.. with EMDR, the way she did it, you have little buttons in each hand that pulsate and they are supposed to help your brain to integrate the experience from one half of your brain to the other so you can finally resolve the PTSD rather than re-experiencing those emotions whenever triggered.

I don't fully understand the concept, but I was so ready to finally get past these feelings that I went into it with an open mind and was amazed at the results.

I didn't know how it would manifest itself and was very pleasantly surprised that weekend when I was stood up on an engagement because the guy opted to spend the time with a woman he had met on a dating site instead of with me... and I was not upset!! Usually I would be VERY upset.. and it stuck. I stopped all the obsessive type behaviors I'd been engaging in all my life.. Weird, but true~
