So I met with a nurse from EHRC last Friday and she left me a pamphlet on biofeedback.  It sounds good but I don't think I am there yet.  I called her about it and some other questions on Wednesday and suggested I see my psychiatrist and pursue my planned EMDR (which has been put on hold until I see the psychiatrist needed to put me on disability). 

I suggested I wait until May to try biofeedback and I felt like she was pressuring me to change counsellors.  I have a counsellor at the Children's hospital and I love her I don't know why I need a new counsellor it would be like starting all over again.  She is also pushing really hard for me to leave my baby with her while I go to counselling.  I nicely said he is good he can just stay with me but she won't let it go.

I am trying to get my well being in order and I think I am on the right track.  I am losing weight, working on fitness, playing with my babe, starting monthly massages, going to the chiropractor, eating an ounce of dark chocolate a day, drinking green tean and YJ and now launching my own YJ business.  Isn't that enough?!

Don't let any health care worker pressure you to do anything that you are not ready for.

Also, I just started EMDR therapy this past week and I wanted to tell you that one 50 minute session helped me so much! I hope it works for you as well as it worked for me.

And finally, I know that words are small comfort to someone who has suffered so much but my thoughts are with you and your family.

Thank-you so much. They have put my EMDR on hold until I have my first appointment with the psychiatrist now involved since I am on disability. I am a little nervous, petrified actually. I am not sure I want to relive the days I lost my son and husband. But I know I do want the images to stop flashing in my head.

I am glad to hear it worked so well for you it gives me hope!
