You cannot change what happened to you, no one can. But you can change your perspective. And perspective is different for everyone, and it's affected by background, trauma, personality and other influences. People often see something that happened to them in an unhealthy way because of that. The key with going over your trauma is to change to see it in a healthy way. Your example is perfect. You may not change anything about the voice, but you may see it in a way that bothers you less and that you can cope with better.
I'm sorry that your massage ended in a headache. A good experience followed by a bad one. Do you think you would go again for a massage based on your experience (before the headache :) )
Banjos are cool. I enjoy listening to them. There is a new country song out by Rascal Flatts, I think, called Banjo. I don't know if you like country music, but it's a good song.
Yes, I have discovered the same thing, Walmart is cheaper! But the store is always so jammed that makes it hard to go. I usually try early mornings or later in the evening. It's better then.
It's good that you are taking a break from church. You could use the downtime. For a while there, you weren't getting any time at all. I think the rest will help you feel you can cope better with what you are going through.
I don't think you will react the same on Monday in therapy that you did with the EMDR. I have never heard of anyone reacting the same so I highly doubt it. Therapy is much more straight forward, with time to think and take a break if you need to. Just tell Linda you want to take it slow. And if you need to, leave for a few moments if you feel overwhelmed. There is nothing wrong with that.
