    anyone have any experience with it? is it the same as cbt? how does it work? I think my counselors answers are vague and not really physical evidence per se.

    I did EMDR last year. My counselor had me hold two items that looked like a small computer mouse. They were hooked up to a machine she had. One at a time would vibrate, back and forth. She would have me close my eyes and picture a traumatic event we were working on and then I would open my eyes when she stopped the machine and tell her what I saw/felt/heard/said/experienced. Then close my eyes and do it all again.
    I did not have a very good experience with it. But some people have great experiences with it and love it.
