yes I have just recently when I was home in South Africa. Just 4 sessions, but due to time constraints they sessions were very close to each other time wise. I talked about some issues, and she suggested some handling exercises. However, regarding the family, there is lots of tension, misunderstanding and stress at this point. We don't see each other much and this was meant to be a vacation. However, it was disagreements from the time we got together.
my sisters and mom-when we get together during vacations, it seems we cant get along. This time was worse for some reason. We live in different parts of the world but coming together is difficult.
i resent the way my late dad treated me. He hit me often and I often felt powerless and wanted to escape. The beatings stopped when i was 20, but the emotional trauma continued. He was always mistrustful and made me feel like i was guilty of doing something wrong.
I think this may have resulted in my string of failed relationships with men. I am always aggressive, irrational, insecure and with a low self-esteem. I choose them wrong. I dont know how to be in a relationship. i recently came out of a 4 year relationship and found out that the guy was lying and cheating on me for the past 4 years. This has crushed me. I cant get the thoughts of murder out of my head :(
clinical psychologist at a medical centre-I just spoke and she listened. Can you please respond to what I've written instead of shifting the attention?
Iv not taken any direction, not tried any method, so I supposed Im a raw candidate. She merely asked me to take an hour to think each night before going to bed, she told me to write down what is in my control and what isn't when it comes to dealing with people (colleagues/family etc). she said i should take some time before responding to people if I feel the urge to snap at them.
My question is how can I forgive my father for his ill-treatment towards me , and let it go?
Each time I think that Iv let go of the pain, some incident happens, and it leads me back to those memories
He's dead (as I mentioned earlier on)
omg for a psychiatrist, you're pretty sarcastic. Im reading up on EMDR-u dont expect me to know the jargon! There, you'v gone and wasted my response-well done.
well it is now 02h40 here and i cannot think straight. In how many hours will u be online again?
Hi -are u online?
