I came across this blog post by Howard Schubiner and I thought it did a really good job at explaining how stresses and our personality traits can attribute to our symptoms. One thing that I liked about this post was that Dr. Schubiner mentioned sometimes just taking time for ourselves and learning to say no to the demands of others can be really helpful in overcoming TMS. In the end, recovery comes down to identifying and understanding what stress we have and how to handle the pressures in our lives. Here is the post by Dr. Schubiner. I am re-posting it here with his permission. I would love to hear some of your thoughts about it.
