    She is wanting me to try it and I told her that someone on here had a bad experience with it and she wanted me to print it out for her so she could read it. Anyone try this?

    It might have been me who posted about it. I had a horrible experience with it during the summer of 2000. My husband insisted that I go and try to get "cured" of my PTSD. Sadly, HE was the cause of my PTSD, being very abusive and threatening dire consequences if I didn't do what he wanted. What I said in my post was that it was absolutely exhausting, and I had to go home and go to sleep afterwards. Also, it was completely ineffective, and it cost $100 for 50 minutes. Probably the worst money I ever spent. Also overwhelming for people with CFS/FM because we tire so quickly. When the EMDR didn't work, my husband left me and is trying to cut off our financial support.
