I Finally got up the guts to start therapy AGain,,,,with a women who was recommended to me and she is close to my house. My initial impression of the office was very comfortable, friendly, beautiful therapy rooms that you want to stay forever in. The only set back for me was this wonderful lady was obviously from my previous life of being a hippie dippie type...LOL In the younger days, I would have loved her peace sign shirt and faireys on the wall.....but I think I was searching for a firm, strong, maternal, reliable women who would take a fairly concervative approach. Instead, she wanted me to write journals and read books about menapause and natural ways to treat it. All in all...that was great advice...but not what I needed. I had to spend alot of time re-emphasising that I was in a crisis mode with family situations that I could not cope well with and needed help to sort it out. This was not a nuerotic housewife who was taking therapy for self fulfillment. I needed a life line!! I told her I was once suicidal, but not there yet....but I have this overwhelming desire to run away....and I have no where to run away to!! nOT A GOOD FEELING. Any way, being the good sport that I am....and totally drained and physically and nuerologically fried person that I am...I decided to go along with her plan. She wants to try EMRD therapy with me the next time I see her. I hear it works fast if you have traumas or other such events in your life that still creep in and effect your current life.....physical pain is thought to be a by product of old feelings and hence you come out of it feeling better. I was just wondering if anyone out there has experienced this therapy and can give me some pros and cons. I have read some things on the internet but there is nothing like hearing from all of you about it. Any comments welcomed!!
