my first session is tomorrow. i'm really thankful and lucky that my regular therapist is trained in EMDR. i don't know if i would have gone for it, otherwise.

i guess i'm wondering how much it will benefit me when i'm not consciously traumatized on a daily basis by the PTSD issue/event, even though i know it is at the heart of my problems with self worth. it's more a matter of fact...yeah, i wish that hadn't happened to me. i'm angry because i feel like i'm already invalidating the experience for myself by downgrading what remains of my feelings of the time.

then again, the root of my issue is total emotional and physical invalidation and powerlessness that i experienced as a child in a world where jesus was the solution to everything and satan was the cause of everything bad. i'm probably also having typical fear of the unknown, last minute jitters. zoiks!
