I'm making slow but steady progress with the pain and the physical restrictions from conditioning.I'm undergoing hypnotherapy too which I've found helpful but at the moment, my anxiety has reached quite high levels and I'm finding it hard to keep a lid on it.I've had some unpleasant dreams and wonder if the hypnotherapy could be stirring things up.I'm treating it as TMS but the fact is that there are also a lot of very real reasons for anxiety in my life too. Not least is the fact that my husband, who was very ill and nearly died last year, has really not got back to what he was and at the moment seems, for unknown reasons,to be getting worse again. Couple that with three family deaths in the last 22 months as well as everyday ongoing stresses and you get the picture. I have been really trying meditation and mindfulness but I just seem to get more anxious and frustrated because my mind just uses the space to start dwelling on negativity. I've journalled too, of course but none of this seems to be settling it down and I'm feeling overwhelmed. What seems to be best is keeping busy while acknowledging the problems. Hope all this makes sense. I'm not expecting any solutions here;perhaps just offloading a bit I guess.
