I've started EMDR therapy.

I have had many years of talk therapy, but all the skills that I have learned over the years have been insufficient to control my anxiety/depression/emotional exhaustion over the past 9 months or so.

I'm going through some major transitions emotionally and spiritually and my workplace is triggery for anxiety, OCD and some of my PTSD issues.

I'm really surprised at how immediately helpful EMDR has been.

My therapist and I haven't delved into the basement where all the really yucky junk is yet. Instead, we've been focusing on strengthening positive, functional aspects of my self. Even with only a few sessions, the change is drastic. Gone are most of the nightmares, the nervous tics that turn into self-harm or the extreme bouts of self-loathing.

I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.
