Hello all, hope you're on the right path... So I've grown increasingly frustrated and confused by the amount of conflicting TMS info out there and it has really thrown a roadblock in my path of healing. For instance, Alan Gordon says that 'attention is fuel for your pain' whereas Katelyn Michals contradicts this by saying we should not ignore our pain and should 'lean into it'. So, how do you respond to pain? How do you keep it from upsetting you? Are we not repressing emotion by doing just that and keeping the circle going? All the information seems contradictory to me. Also, if I'm telling myself - 'It's just TMS, the pain is psychosomatic' as a response to pain every 5 minutes, am I not CREATING ANXIETY and internal disquiet by arguing with my body? As I understand, chronic anxiety and worry are best served by a counter-intuitive approach - to quote 'The Worry Trick', 'You are putting out fires with gasoline'. Thank you in advance.
