One of the personality traits I'm looking at right now is my suggestibility. I'm one of those people who can adopt a TMS symptom just by talking to someone who has it. That's how I got my RSI. I'm beginning to think it may be the source of the knee pain as well (RSI is 90% resolved). I can't watch TV shows like House, or other medical type shows because if I see emotional portrayals of someone with a weird symptom, I have to fight against bringing it into my own psyche, if you know what I mean. I even have trouble reading people's entries on this forum at times because there are things I've never heard of before, and ack! I don't want to add to my lexicon of possible symptoms! Now I am beginning to look at my suggestibility in a different light. I'm beginning to believe that I can use it... that it's actually a gift. It takes some effort, but I am beginning to give myself new suggestions, deliberately, after meditation in the morning. I've been afraid of this aspect of my mind all my life. Now I feel as though maybe I can learn to use it to my advantage. Has anyone else had good experiences turning their suggestibility around and using it in positive ways?
