I'm glad it's working so well. I don't know if I could say that I process memories from these sessions, or maybe that's what it's really called! I get an exact understanding of what the feelings "feel" like and I learn how they came about--actually, why I had those feelings. As I said, I can't change them yet, but understanding them is really important to me. I tend to overanalyze myself, or maybe intellectualize too much so that I can hide from my feelings. It's progress, though, and working in tandem w/my T has moved me forward so much faster. I was so stuck and frustrated that I begged her to let me try it. It has worked well, although I know it certainly doesn't work for everyone.

Another thing--my EMDR therapist uses a light machine instead of her fingers. I'm always uncomfortable because I feel like she is watching me watch the lights...
