But... If it just doesn't work on me, EMDR or hypnosis or body work or whatever, if it just doesn't work....

Does it have to be because I don't want to re-experience the pain or am not willing to be uncomfortable?

Isn't it possible that even if I want these things to work, which I did, they just don't? Not for me?

Fortunately neither my hypnosis therapist nor my EMDR therapist put any blame on me for it not working. But it always seems like it's built into the system somehow. Like if I wanted it to work, it would. Believe me, I wanted it to work. Especially the hypnosis. I really really wanted that to work. It just didn't. I really don't want to feel like I've failed again. Failed again to connect to a therapist. Failed again to experience that I'm apparently supposed to experience, but just don't.

I was all for doing it the first time. But I admit, I'm kind of annoyed at having to go through all this again when I have no expectation whatsoever that it will be helpful because it wasn't the last time, with a fully trained and not unpleasant therapist.

Why can't it just not be helpful for me?
