The most helpful reminder I tell myself with the TMS approach is that over the course of a day the pain symptoms move to different parts of my body. This generally ensures that I don't feel pain in a particular area for too long. That said I do find myself becoming stressed about the fact that I still feel pain. I also find I get stressed about the fact I know my emotions are causing this and that I find it hard to keep on top of. I believe a lot of the stress is due to my current living situation. I've just started a new job, am in a terrible financial situation, living with a partner in a relationship that is struggling and also preparing to move countries back home in the next few months. I suppose with such a degree of uncertainty it's no surprise that I often focus on the physical aspects, I'm still yet to find the best approach to managing these symptoms and addressing the emotional issues that arise as a result of this stress.
