I find the journaling to be the most valuable - and the most difficult - of the tasks in this program. The first day of journaling, I chose a topic to write that resulted in deep emotional upheaval for me. Other days' subjects have been painful to write about but have not caused me to cry but instead to feel an odd combination of sadness and relief. I have had an easier time staying asleep (and not getting up as frequently to urinate) for the most part although I am having some other symptoms that I understand are TMS- related. I have read that when starting this program, some symptoms might get temporarily worse and other symptoms might crop up. I guess that is my mind reacting to the stimulus of touching emotions and memories that have stayed buried for a long time. I also have been feeling very tired and wanting to nap frequently (I'm 61) which may also be a by-product of uncovering these emotions. Is this common? Anyway, I am grateful for this program and pray for the courage to complete it.
