I said a couple of posts back I was going to write about this and finally I'm getting around to it. I guess my question is when you're having a bad day, or a few bad days, how do you stop yourself from falling back into your old ways? Usually if I'm having a bad day obviously my fear levels go up like "Oh im not getting better this isn't working now" and then I start resorting to old methods of "maybe the pain is physical and I didn't do something right before" and start doubting myself. I know this detracts from the hard work I put into TMS therapy and its extremely difficult when I'm having a bad day to not have those thoughts. Case in point was this past week.. it wasn't very good pain wise or stress wise. I had some issues at work where I got really pissed off and angry about what was going down and I know that translated into more pain for me. The big thing I've been talking about recently in my posts is fear about the pain. Even when I'm having a good day I have that thought in my mind like "I hope this pain doesn't come back tomorrow" that kind of deal. And then when I'm having a bad day all of the fear and emotions of doubt come back and I end up surfing the web again reading the articles that i've read 1000 times doing the same crap I've done for the past 3 years that haven't had any benefit for me. The brain is a constant source of doubt especially when struggling so even though I tell myself over and over "I did that already, i did the doctors treatments they didn't work at all, i never got help from that and this is psychological" my brain still says "oh maybe you just didn't do it long enough, maybe you didn't do it right, maybe whatif maybe" it drives you insane thinking like this. What do you guys do when this happens/happened to you where the old thoughts of doubt came back up that you might have missed something physically and thats why you're not better? Right now as I type my eyes are in pain and I get those thoughts of doubt running again and I can't stand it.
