Back to Therapy for EMDR – Update

I’m back in therapy after an incident while driving that has caused me a lot of problems.

We were planning to start the eye movement process today, but when we got to the step of creating a safe space and defining that clearly, I had a lot of emotion.

It was because I don’t feel like I have the calm, peace and safety in my life that the place in the exercise represents. That was a hard realization, and I’m really glad I decided to go back to therapy to get help with this.

We didn’t get to eye movement, which is fine because the healing process happens as it happens and as we are able, and living with PTSD is full of a lot of unknown and unexpected. This unexpected at least helped get closer to the root of the issues I’m currently experiencing, and provided a path to address them.
