    I'm progressing well with the programme.
    Being a typical T M S person I am being very conscientious!
    I have been journaling for years. I am very well acquainted with my issues from childhood. I know that I am in a rage about them. I have expressed these issues to my mother many times and she knows how angry I am, and I have expressed this anger.

    I can see a correlation between emotions and how i got C F S. I can see a correlation between how I keep the symptoms going through negative thinking but a lot of the time the pain , which is known as post-exertional malaise, or pem, comes on after activity and affects the muscles that have been used. I need to work on tackling the symptoms directly as they arise.
    I look forward to learning more about this in future sessions.

    Just want to let you know that I used to have pem as part of my symptom array, and no longer do. Now I just get normal sore muscles after an activity I haven't done before. My fear of pem lasted awhile even after the symptom had disappeared. I was very protective about what activity I took on out of habit. Now I'm over that part too.

    You are well on your way to recovery!

    I have found that forgiving can free one of TMS pain. I put myself in the shoes of those I believe have given me emotional pain and come to realize they meant well and I can forgive them. It's much healthier to turn away from anger and to forgive.
