I just returned from therapy and I am exhausted. I have been seriously depressed for about three weeks. My therapist recommended taking a break from the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This a form of treatment that has become very helpful in dealing with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It has helped to deal with painful memories from my childhood. But its been getting increasingly worse more and more and harder to deal with it all. I guess it is time for a break.
IOP will provide the stability that I need right now and being out of the house will be scary but healthy for me.
My heart goes out to all those suffering from depression and anxiety and dealing a painful past.
I am sending a mental and emotional hug to you all.
Take care and stay safe.
