First, I'd like to say happy holidays to everyone! :-)

Sometime in January I plan to start EMDR therapy. Right now me and my therapist are preparing for it. I told her that I'm afraid of experiencing panic attacks, dissociations, and other symptoms during treatment, so we're making sure that I feel safe before we start retrieving scary memories. I'm very excited but pretty nervous at the same time. I've read that many, many people had awesome results from EMDR therapy. I hope I become one of them.

Es una terapia que stimular los dos partes de la mente. Es difícil para explicar (¡en español y en inglés!).

Mi doctora tiene un instrumento que yo llevo en mis manos durante una sesión. Se llama "tappers." Yo llevo uno en cada mano y los tappers vibran en mis manos uno a la vez. Yo pienso sobre un trauma de mi niñez, y el estímulo de los tappers a mi mente para los manos ayudará mi mente reprocesar la trauma. La memoria no debe me duele tan mucho.

El proceso es muy simple, pero muy complicado también. Aquí es un sitio que exclipa: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desensibilizaci%C3%B3n_y_reprocesamiento_por_movimientos_oculares
