First Memory: 4th Grade

Iím tired

I donít think I slept at all last night

I kept thinking of her

My inner child

Iím working on healing her

My therapist told me
To imagine her
And me

In the same room

I hugged her so tight

We both couldnít stop crying


Healing is going through the motions

So thatís what Iím going to do

We are in this together

Author's Note
EMDR is like going from the top to the bottom. From the chimney to the foundation. Itís hard. And it was only my first session. Iím doing it twice a week now. I never knew how much my inner child needed love. My therapist was in shock that the trauma runs that deep, that far. She said I shouldnít have to carry that. 8 years and counting of carrying it. Maybe I donít have physical muscle but I do have mental strength. One day Iíll be able to face those people who have tortured me for 8 years (basically 9, I know itíll happen this coming year too), and know that I deserve everything they took from me. Thatís what Iím working towards.
