Since TMS theory states that we should not act bothered by our symptoms and we should express our repressed anger-- what do you do if you have anger about your symptoms? Should I express it or ignore it? Haven't seen this addressed in all I've read about TMS. Mostly they talk about being afraid of symptoms, not being angered by them. I am not afraid of my symptoms. They just make me very angry. Whenever I think about them, I feel anger in my shoulders. Should I express it per the 'expressing anger component' of TMS theory or should I bring myself into a state of peace about my symptoms per the 'not being bothered by your symptoms' component of TMS theory?
