Okay, this is what my first session was about. I had to make a list of the worse memories I had about my childhood.
The first one which is what we used in my session was the time I over heard my parents talking one night in a hotel room that I was only conceived to prevent my dad from going to Vietnam. This was tramatic since I was only like 7 years old. Well as the session went on, I could remember more of that night, it was like I could see it happening all over again. Well I remembered my mothers evil laughter about it. Well that evil laughter triggered something later that night, that I won't go into, but it involved physical abuse. Well the buried memory that was recovered was that fact that I as physically abused, not just my brother who I knew was. I was suffering from PTSD because of current thing my mother was doing. I don't know if you remember the story, but she sent a unmarked package to my kids. She worked as a security guard at the mall. I was afraid she would abduct my kids. Well we were doing EMDR to desentize my mother so I wouldn't suffer any more symtoms of PTSD. Well it did work. I no longer am looking over my shoulder contantly to see if she in the same store, I don't have the bad nightmares, and basically feel much happier, less stress, etc. (increased sex drive, lol) He did other things as well too that helped. Well that is probably more than you wanted to know! lol I need to get to bed, so I will talk to ya later! :)
