Hi everyone, I am looking for any input if the DARE method has worked for anyone. I know anxiety is at the center of my TMS and fear of pain too. I am working through The Great Pain Deception and love Defying the Verdict but as others have mentioned, the anxiety seems to spike as I work through all this and sometimes I feel truly discouraged when stressful situations flare my symptoms so quickly and easily. I’m trying to not only unlearn/rewire my pain response but also my stress response too. Another person I’ve stumbled upon just this week is Nicole Sachs. Any positive stories using either or advice is much appreciated. I’m not giving up, I will keep reading in the meantime. I hope everyone is staying well.
