Today, on day 27, the journaling assignment is this: "Take a past event or strong emotions and journal about how it has caused minor, or major, flare-ups of TMS/PPD. This can be something like allergies or acid reflux, or a pain problem such as back pain or leg pain. As you write try to think of the story behind the flare-up and attempt to connect how the symptom was caused by repressed emotions." To date I have not been able to identify any particular emotion or stress when I'm having pain. The closest I've come is connecting one of my first chronic pains to a particular event. During my first walk after giving birth to my first child, I started having excruciating toe pain. It's continued on and off for 14 years. After extensive testing, of course all I was diagnosed with incurable nerve damage that wasn't even visible through any of the tests. For years I thought the pain was from the force I exerted on my toes pressing them in the bathtub as I gave birth. But now I realize it's definitely TMS. My first TMS symptom in fact. But I'm not sure about the emotion attached to it. It's very likely that it's either stress over becoming a parent, or not being a good enough mom or something along those lines. But I'm not sure. I have several other pains that move around, some old, some new, but I have not been able to identify a source of stress or particular emotion present when the pain first started or even when it flares up today. Do you have any advice on how I can do this?
