I've been reading and learning more about attachment style in the last few months, and I've found it fascinating. I also feel there could be many correlations between attachment style and TMS, as mentioned in Dr James Alexander's book 'The Hidden Psychology of Pain'. I read the book 'Attached' by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller which was very enlightening for me. Here is an excerpt from the 'About' page on their website: "Also central to the science of attachment is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship is embedded in our genes; so, contrary to what many relationship experts today may tell us about the importance of remaining emotionally “self-sufficient”, attachment research shows us that our need to be close to our partner is essential. That, in fact, we can’t live without it."

What also intrigued me was how Anxious types are often drawn to Avoidant people, who actually trigger their insecurities and perpetuate the pattern. I realised this creates a lot of tension for me, which manifests as back/shoulder pain, nerve pain, and fatigue, among other things. Do you know what your attachment style is? How do you think it has contributed to your TMS symptoms?
