Hey PC,
I'm so glad that EMDR is working so well for you. I have to admit, that in my coursework, EMDR did not get very good marks from the faculty. It's nice to hear a personal, successful so far account.

And I'm sorry that today is like a rollercoaster. I hope you can weather this and get through. Just keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times. And take that bubble bath. MMmmmmmmm. May need to do that myself. If only the tub were clean...sigh.

I really like that visualization of cutting those bonds, thanking them and lettning them go, healing, and forming new ties. Just today in therapy, my T talked about how internalizing my mother (very critical voice inside) keeps a tie to my mom and the familiar, no matter how painful it is. For some reason, that tie to the familiar crappy thing is better than feeling untethered or unattached to her.

I may try meditating on that image myself and try to find something in my mother I can attach to instead of the critical. At the moment, I have no idea what that might be, and I don't want to cut the ties without a back up. But I'll give it a shot.

Take care,
