I have been in therapy for a little over two years following a traffic accident. Since that time I have been seeing a therapist for a combination of emdr and talk therapy. From my understanding of how emdr works, things are progressing slowly because I have earlier traumas that I have never dealt with until two years ago. These include rape at university, a physically and verbally abusive mother and a father who gratified himself while sitting on my bed looking at me when I was 10-12 years old. My husband and I are experiencing severe financial difficulties right now and due to his suffering as a result, he has seeked out a therapist. He said we can't affort both and he wants me to stop therapy so he can go to his. I am really scared about this. Everything is so open and raw and unprocessed. What can I expect to happen to me when I just stop. I am afraid to do this but there are no other options. My therapist has in the past offered to run a tab but I may not be able to pay for a long time and so that is not an option and he does not offer a sliding scale of any kind. My question is, what will happen from, bang, just stopping, with so many things unresolved and haunting me day and night and panic and flashbacks etc?
