Hello VG, How long did it actually take for real response. I am in it for 3 weeks now and I still have really bad days. I know I am in a storm with Covid all around us but i seem to be stuck somewhere. Everyday is a new death ailment.

I am starting EMDR b/c of severe health anxiety. I used to have yearly cycles where I thought I was dying of some form of cancer (everything from melanoma to breast, to colon, to stomach, to brain). I could go as long as 2 years without a flare but since I turned 40, forget it. It's all day everyday. I have two beautiful young kids and I feel like my mental energy is being taken over by this. Instead of enjoying life in the the now, I am worrying that I am dying. Glad to see EMDR is being used for anxieties like this. Trouble is though--- it's so much! My target is fear of cancer....but there are so many stories and mental images. Not even sure where to begin--- b/c it's a future fear. I cannot look back on a certain event. It's all made up. Any tips?
