This is not meant to be a pro or con political post. Please don't reply with your personal politics, only suggestions about the TMS issue. Thanks. Hearing world news really sets off my nervous system in so many ways. I wasn't this way before. A nurse I know at an ER has even said that the amount of people coming in with anxiety attacks about the future has tripled at their hospital this year already. I know even 30 years ago we wouldn't have heard all the news all day long on social media like we do, so maybe our nervous systems aren't set up for it. I've tried to only see the news every three days, etc. And, friends have said, well there's nothing you can do to change it right now, anyway. However, I don't want to live in a bubble or in denial. Does anyone else feel like world news / events take a toll on your healing from TMS? If so, what have you been doing? I'd really like to know. Thank you.
