I felt the memory gush out
"After ten hours of EMDR, I had made the breakthrough I needed and I left the surgery in a state of euphoria. I haven't had a panic attack or nightmare since and now realise that they were the physical memory of the rapist crushing and suffocating me. Replaying events gave my brain another chance to process them. This time it got it right and emotionally, not just rationally, I now acknowledge that you can't control everything."
