Hiya Can't. Just getting caught up on your thread. Sorry to hear that you were sick and that it interfered with your normal "activities". Is that better now? Back to normal? If not, I'd definitely tell your T about it if I were you. If it was just for a few days than it probably amounted to nothing more than your being exhausted from being sick. If it went on longer than that, there must be some underlying issues.

Good luck with this girl. She sounds pretty cool. Not that I'm one to give relationship advise, but I'd say just try to take things kind of slow. You definitely don't have to disclose everything to her at once. From her reaction to what you've already leaked to her though, it sounds like she can handle whatever it is you'd have to tell her. I hope things continue to go well between you and her. Peace,

I've been thinking about this thread for the last couple of days. I'm wondering why, in my case, recovery has taken so long. EMDR greatly speeded things up for me. I had about 2 dozen sessions of about a dozen each separated by some months.

I knew at the time that I should keep notes on the individual sessions, but I didn't. Lots of the sessions were terribly painful in that it took me to the heart of a tortured boy (me). But then after several days I experienced an emotional freedom I haven't experienced for a long, long time. The temporary pain was clearly worth it.

So, I compare EMDR with surgery which removes a painful condition and leaves me feeling better. Yes it was temporarily very agonizing but it had permanent and good effects.

I've been seeing another specialist T because of the unusual nature of where I think I need to go next. I haven't solved this riddle yet.

What I'm talking about has to do with psycho-surgery performed on me during a feigned tonsillectomy when I was 13. I believe that "they" did several things to me and paid my father for my "use" in the experiments. I don't have clear memories (yet?). I have found various experiments on minds of children reported in some of the books I've been reading. But I need additional help with it. My current T has been hesitant to use EMDR and/or hypnotherapy on me. I'm not completely sure of why this is. Some people would call this crazy. I guess it is crazy. But I've found 4 or 5 experiments performed on children in various books I've been reading. One of them is:

There are a couple of experiments described in this book. I think I will post them separately because I think it will help me to think things through.
