Last night, I had what I’d call a “good” journalling session. (I’m trying to journal more regularly, and I’m just now getting into a regular practice.) Found some patterns in my history, brought up some emotions and felt them, and tried to process all of this in a direct, honest, and courageous way. I went to sleep, thinking I accomplished something, and that I’d feel the effects of this in the morning. Quite the opposite. I woke up feeling horrible; everything I don’t like, magnified two or three times. I got nothing done and I was astonished by the pain. I’m kind of confused! On one hand, it seems that this is (yet another) point of proof for the TMS connection. I didn’t do anything to create such a violent reaction. That’s good, right? On the other hand, my attempt to “do the work” feels like, this time, it got me deeper in rather than pulling me out. I’m not too enthusiastic to keep journalling as a result. Does anyone care to weigh in on what’s going on, or share some advice? I predict the answer will be “keep going,” and if you zoom out on the graph this little dip in progress is still on a larger incline, but …. I guess I just need some advice.
