"Our hearts are priceless, and affect every area of our lives. We must make a commitment to protect our hearts and not just throw them away looking for love in people and places where love cannot be found. Let us all respect and heal our own hearts."- Dawson McAllister
I was in a bad car accident in 2007. Three cars piled into the back of me. Some guy had a seizure in his leg and lost control of his leg muscles, pushing on the gas pedal uncontrollably. I remember the screaming I heard – it was mine. I had thought it was a terrorist attack. There was shock, emotional shaking, fear, anxiety, confusion and PTSD. I was told I had suffered a traumatic brain injury as well. Fast forward to 2018. I was noticing when in traffic, I always hang back at least two car lengths to make sure that “if I get hit again, my car won’t slam into the car in front of me.” What is wrong with this picture? I was still suffering from the trauma of that fateful day. So, with Dr. Nicci’s help, I went through EMDR. About two weeks later, I called her to say, “I think I am healed. I am stopping right behind the guy in front of me – almost on his bumper – like I used to! Ha. I think the EMDR has done too good a job!
