I have never tried it, cryingontheinside, so unfortunately I don't have a lot of advice to give to you I'm glad Little Lulu was able to report her friend's experience! I'd suggest to talk to your Pdoc about this and see how it goes from there if you haven't already. Hopefully he/she will be able to help you. Perhaps he/she will be able to explain to you how it works and if you could try it in his/her opinion. I hope you'll be able to get the help you need and deserve! I hope it will work out for you if you decide to try it. Remember that we're here for you if you need it. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you, cryingontheinside

I've had hypnosis several times over the years for various things and always found it relaxing in a way most other techniques aren't, I suppose because you are encouraged to go inward and access a deeper level of consciousness than usual.

One tape I was given started out with having you relax and close your eyes, then start imagining you were descending 10 steps into an underground room. You could visualize light there if you wanted, didn't have to be total darkness. There was something especially soothing about that image, and when you got deep enough sometimes you could access the roots of things that were troubling you in your daily life and try to reprogram them.

If you're interested, ask around or look on the Net for a reputable hypnotist and give it a try, I say.
