As I was reading through the portion of Pathways to Pain Relief that we will be discussing for Saturday’s TMS discussion group, this quote really stood out to me. It is also something that I hear quite a bit from people, and I would love to hear some of your thoughts on this. Have you experienced the same thing? Do you have any tips on how to overcome/prevent this? Personally I don’t think this means that we shouldn’t get in touch with our emotions. Only that since we have been repressing for so long, we may not be skilled at doing this. It is very easy to have an increase of anxiety when we first do this work, and for a lot of us anxiety leads to fear, which leads to more anxiety and an increase of symptoms. Don’t resist your emotions, including anxiety. Accept it, and it will simply fade away. As a quick reminder the call-in discussion starts at 2 PM ET.
