Difficult day, discouraged but fighting. Feel distant from body and emotions, trying to be "here". Dec 22, 2016

    Day One: I think I have TMS. Or rather, I think I have a mindbody problem that shows itself in the form of pain. I don't care what it's called, but "tension" is definitely a part of it. A big part. I am beginning to believe that I've had this for decades, and it has manifested as different things: acid reflux, IBS, nausea, pain, and that it comes down to anxiety/fear/repressed emotions. I have been reading Dr. Sarno's books and Googling what TMS recoverers say. I have also been using Canadian physiotherapist/international pain expert/yoga therapist Neil Pearson's online self-management "Life is Now" program. His material and approach overlaps with Dr. Sarno's, but also focuses on breath awareness and body awareness practises. I tend to overanalyze so I am going to stop now, but just to say, I have experienced that letting emotion out, changing my belief systems, and talking back to my brain all make a difference.

      Day 5. Body scan/relaxation meditation after journalling felt great, restored feeling of peace and ease to my body.
