Last week, when I left Dr. Schubiner's office and had gotten a diagnosis of TMS, I had an increase in symptoms. The 3-hour drive home was tough. Emotionally I felt good, but physically it was awful. I figured this was an extinction burst and Dr. Schubiner indicated that my brain is just fighting hard to stay in control. Thinking about this, and reading more about the extinction burst, I feel like my brain is this enemy that I have to fight because it is trying to take over my body. I feel angry at my brain and want to scream at it. But when I read about cognitive soothing, I feel like my brain is this scared little organ that I need to take care of. I feel sorry for my brain and want to comfort it for feeling scared. I am not sure how to reconcile this??
