As promised I am giving you guys an update on how my therapy went and what I will be going to do.
So both my mother, therapist and I agree that there needs to be started another route with therapy. And the one my therapist suggested would fit with my situation, is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
I have read myself a bit into this kind of therapy and based on that I believe that the client (which will be me) is going to relive the traumatic experience and something with a distracting stimulant. I have been told that this would help process everything correctly and take the sharp edges of the memory.
So I am going to start this new route after I have finished the route I am still following, which will be wrapped up at December 19th, so the new route will probably start in 2018.
I am glad that there is something like this, which can help me. I don’t know what to expect from it, but I do think that in the beginning the emotions will be very intense. But I am ready for.
So the other thing which is going through my mind right now is college. I took a half year break from it to work on myself, and beginning that half year I would have expected to be done with therapy and to just go back to school and get my degree.
Which is going to be different right now. So I am planning to talk with my college about my options, if there is a way to still start in February but lighten the work I have to do for it, by maybe splitting up the internship and thesis instead of doing them at the same time.
So that is what I am going to work on next, and I hope to have a sort pf request for this out at the beginning of December so that I can have a bit more clarity on what the next few months are going to look like. And once I have an answer for that, I will get you know 🙂
Even though I am still struggling with my mental health, I am excited to get back to college and get my degree. I have been so ready for it for over a year. I really want to just get started with work and worry about school, and to make to next step into adulthood.
Once again thank you for listening and following my journey with everything.
