> Yeah, it was me about the dad and killing and all that stuff. I have suffered lots of minor abuses in different forms too I guess. Maybe I should ask my T.

Yes, yes and yes. I also think you underestimate your "minor" abuse. I guess it took me EMDR to admit to it myself, sorry if I am to blunt, but you have been abused. My T says that several minor abuses is even more tramatic than one big thing. I think EMDR would be worth a try.
> Also - how do you move your eyes? How is this different from CBT? If it is just moving my eyes, can I do it myself ?? (sorry if it sounds stupid). Does he guide you and ask you to move your eyes?

Okay, here is the sexy part, just kidding, lol. He moves 2 fingers ( yes fingers) back in forth about 12 inches from your face, from side to side and you follow him with your eyes without moving your head. He told me that you can do it to yourself, after you have been trained. I am sure there is more to it than that, because he watches you very carefully for any changes in your body and facial expressions. He uses this to judge how long the eye movement takes. I don't know the specifics of it. For me, the less I know what he is doing the better, or I would be too self conscience. It isn't something you want to mess with. Did you read Shario thing about how she discoverd this?
I think CBT is still used in EMDR because you will process your memories for a correct thinking about them. Ask away! Does this help?
