    Think of a person in your life from whom you hide your emotions. What is preventing you from telling this person how you feel?

    I think of Mrs D. I want to tell her that what she did really hurt me. But I won't as I know it will cause arguments and hurt for both of us. Even now writing this I feel a little kick from TMS. It's like if I don't tell her I can't rid myself of the hurt I think I'm dealing with consciously but am understanding that subconsciously has not let go. Conciously I'm dealing with this pain.

    Sorry to ramble but a penny just dropped. I'm suppressing this hurt even as I type.

    Thanks for listening.

    markd, I don't think you have to confront Mrs. D about what she did that hurt you.
    No need to open old wounds.
    I would just journal about it. Or write her a letter about it, then don't mail it or tear it up.
    You will get it out of your conscious mind and that will let your unconscious mind know
    you've remembered the hurt and brought it up from your repressed emotions.
    Then your unconscious mind will stop the pain.
    That's how Dr. Sarno says we deal with things like how Mrs. D hurt you.
    She shouldn't have done that to someone as nice as you.
