I was offered this as a form of therapy to see if it helps any & was wondering what people’s experiences have been! Thanks x
This is very well explained,as to why EMDR would most likely not help in our cases. I have asked for it but even my psych said it probably won't work because we are so detached from ourselves. More body related therapy could do much more for us,to release stress from our bodies and relax the brain.I've tried it and it honestly didn't do anything for me. From what I've researched, EMDR doesn't work if you're in a dissociated state as you need to be able to process emotions that come up during the EMDR and with DP that frequently isn't possible as those emotions aren't accessible.
Basically I have no access to my emotions- I can't feel anything other than anxiety and panic occasionally, so when I was doing the EMDR and trying to work through some of my past trauma, the EMDR wasn't evoking any emotional response in me because of my detachment- so there wasn't really any emotional healing I could do in my DP'd state, if that makes sense.
