After 2 debilitating years of mystery arm pain, I know I am finally on the road to recovery thanks to TMS awareness. After much self-reflection, I now realize the vast majority of my repressed emotions are due to my volatile family. I come from a hotheaded Italian family that was constantly in fights and drama. This undoubtedly shaped my personality, as I was (still am!) constantly mediating conflict between my Mother, Father and two Brothers. I continue to be the liaison, especially now as the scars run deeper and several family members don't even communicate with each other. As a "People Pleaser" personality, I only now have come to realize how deeply entrenched I am in all this family drama and the repressed emotions of anxiety, guilt and...rage that I have in my unconscious. My Q is the following: now that I have become aware and acknowledged this primary source of repressed tension & stress, will that be enough to overcome my physical pain? Or, do I actually need to confront it with my family members by either broaching it directly or completely disengaging? Knowledge is power indeed, but I don't know the best course of action to proceed with it --either working thru my TMS confidentially now that it's coming to my conscious mind or sharing my new discovery with my family in order to have them understand they are the problem! A new dilemma, but I am committed to resolving my pain regardless what it takes at this point...thanks!
