Hello guys. Sorry about that blank window above. Somehow I hit 'submit' inadvertently.

I'm curious to know if there are others who were treated with EMDR during post-rape counseling. EMDR is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming (or soemthing close to those words). My therapist used it with me because there were times when I was stuck, and he said I had a post-traumatic rape syndome thing going on. There were times I got stuck in loops. Anyway, the EMDR seemed to help at the time. It's been a couple of years, and now I'm wondering if I need to go in for a tune-up. I'm experiencing a few of those "stuck" moments again. Not really replays of the events, but replays of feelings. What has been the experience of others? Just curious.

EMDR has made minor differences for me - of course I haven't had it regular enough I suppose to know for sure.

For me, tapping has been much more productive.

Wow...same TOPIC in different forums on the same day...WOW...
Two different people in different states w/ the same question...

A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: "Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time." When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment, "The one I feed the most."

I did emdr for a period several years ago and it did help me. I have been wondering if a tune up would be helpful for me as well.... Unfortunately, I was drinking very heavily at the time (I even went to my session loaded a few times... I was very good at hiding it) so I don't know if I got as much benefit as I could have... but I have less panic now, so I'm not sure... let me know what you do, ok?
