I've been doing the tms/mbs work for about 3 months now, been on the forum for about 2 months. I thought about stepping back from here completely, because it stressed me out too much; I've since come to reconsider and decided to stick around but in a different way. I think this is a great resource, it's just a matter of finding what works for you. Since starting the work I've been able to overcome panic attacks, vertigo, tinnitus, migraines and sciatica. I've managed to do that by taking the Unlearn Your Pain program (and continuing working with the techniques in the book) and by following Claire Weekes advice for overcoming anxiety. I've been working on my diet and started to exercise more; making sure to get back to nature and meet new people. I've simplified my life and I've started to change the things that aren't working for me; all in an effort to take steps towards a new life and a new, improved Me. I still suffer from general anxiety and fatigue (but to a lesser degree than before), numbness/tingling in my arms/hands/legs, clenched jaw/stiff neck (when I get very stressed) and on occasion blurry vision. Now, here's my question - How do you become less sensitive? I've come to realize that this is my main problem. I'm too sensitive. I feel things too deeply. I feel others pain and take it on, which at times destroys me. If someone is sad or angry or anything in between I feel it in my body and I need to find a way not to let things affect me so much. If someone hurts me I internalize it and fall apart and I just want to be able to handle things better. I've been standing up for myself a little more lately, but I haven't been able to handle the consequences in a healthy way - if I've been in an argument with someone I have trouble falling asleep and the next day I'm exhausted. So, how do I do that? How do become stronger in that regard? I'm thankful for any advice!
