  1. This episode was very enlightening to me. I came to realize so much from my past that has brought me to where I am today with trauma and addiction. My small trauma’s were:

    a mother who couldn’t connect with me, she struggled a ton with bipolar depression, especially during my preteen and early teenage years. She still struggles and I still find it very difficult to connect with her.

    struggling to connect with an emotionally distant dad who felt like he had to do everything because of my mom’s depression. I can connect to my dad a lot better now than I ever could in the past.

    being harassed and bullied at school

    having a very a controlling older brother who refused to listen to me

    I have been working with Karmin doing EMDR and it has significantly improved my quality of life and how I experience life. I’m not as shut down anymore because of these traumas. I still have some work to do, but I am grateful for the perspective and healing that EMDR has brought to my life.
