You know what? I'm angry. This is absolutely not something I would have admitted to, before discovering TMS. I am very much the typical TMS personality, a goodist, perfectionist, stoic. I can't recall more than a few times in my entire life that I've even felt, let alone expressed, anger, so this is very unfamiliar territory for me. Maybe it's because I'm anonymous here, or because I know you all will get it. But it's a huge leap to me actually feel and then express that I'm pissed. I'm angry that this illness has debilitated me for the last two months (not to mention the year and a half of symptoms before). I'm angry about other things too - I won't list the litany of my symptoms and how they affect me here, as I don't think it's going to help me or any of you - but today I've decided I'm letting it out rather than bottling it in. This is a big step for me. What's interesting is that I am usually pretty consumed with fear/ anxiety. But today, being angry and giving expression to that, I don't feel afraid. I feel almost that fear is an internalised expression; anger is the externalised version of the same emotion. Can anyone else relate? How do you express your anger when it rises?
