When you support others but now need support yourself

Just came across this page and feel strong enough to actually face it! It’s been a horrendous time to where I lost all control of my thoughts and feelings I’ve faced losing my Dad to suicide last year which triggered my mental state to go into full steam! Love to know is anyone else has had EMDR therapy and how the after treatment felt?? Much love Jessy 💛

Hi Jessy, and welcome to the site. I was referred for EMDR because I was struggling with flashbacks from my Mum's death. I've had four sessions, and haven't really got into it yet properly, but I'm hopeful for good results x

I've had good results with emdr. It's hard work but it's made me look at my traumas in a different way. They are not so all consuming and debilitating when I have flash backs.

It can't hurt to try it. I've read some people get nothing out of it. So, I'm glad it worked for me.

Yes if it gets too tough you have to step out for awhile. That's what I was advised to do.

Yes you will running is very good for your mental health when I run I think of nothing and great for you. Time is a great healer people tell me it is but it still hurts even years after it’s a long time healing but with help and support which you need and a shoulder to cry on when your low talking helps so when you need to let it out it’s no good bottling it in the pain doesn’t go away it makes things worse trust me been there done it xx 😉

Hopefully the rain might keep away but looking at my app doesn’t look great but they’re not accurate. Being a bit nervous for father’s is expected I understand sweetie my heart goes out to you and at least you have them 2 little boys to get you through the day I hope the day goes well for you all you know what I mean you’re going to be sad but be strong for your boys. I’m keeping well thank you and don’t mention it my heart went out to you reading your post 😢.

Can relate a little to the status, and sorry for what you’ve been through

This is just the iceberg but what keeps me going is all the people have been through hell and back and still wake up everyday! We can do this!
