I had a weird experience today, I’ve always been frightened of heights (vertigo), but today, for the first time since I ended EMDR therapy, I climbed on top of a roof, changing the waterboards, with 7 meters down into rocks, I was hanging over the sides removing boards, and swinging from an old internet pole, outside the roof without safety, and No fear.
First I thought it was my lack of regard to safety or not caring if I died, as I walked around with suicidal thoughts for about 8 years, but it doesn’t compute regarding the timeline, this happened for the first time after EMDR.
The whole point of this story, I want to reach out to the health community and literally ask, CAN EMDR THERAPY HEAL/HELP WITH FOBIAS AND OTHER UNDERLYING FEARS?
