Day 3 SEP and activities with TMS

    I am in day 3 of SEP program and I am being advised to ponder on the following:

    “When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why?”

    My main symptoms bloating and constipation, making me feel heavy, distended, tired and unmotivated, but regardless of this I started running once again 3-4 weeks ago. I am discouraged because it does nothing for the bloating. I use to also like to go to a coffee shop and work on my crochet but now I have a hard time going there bc I find myself constantly comparing myself to before when I had no gastro issues. I use to swim as well but I am not comfortable with doing that as I feel very distended and uncomfortable. I would also like going for long walks but now I am afraid to do that because I will be alone with my constant thoughts on the constant bloating I suffer from. I feel like I am different from others bc my discomfort is 100% of the time present, very diffiicult to concentrate on anything else.

    I feel with you, I can tell from both your posts that there is a lot of suffering. You deserve better

    This is the core of the TMS purpose. To keep you preoccupied on something else. You are not different, this is 100% human and your body´s way of protecting you from feeling something it thinks is dangerous.

    Keep up the work in the program and you will improve.

    I also recommend the following page (especially listening to the audio clips):

    Hi Hedger! Thank you for your support it is very much appreciated. I read somewhere that you did the audio 100 . I am at my 32 day , hopefully it helps a bit but I do not want to be put all my eggs in o e basket. So hopefully this Tms work pays off. It would be amazing to hear more ibs success stories.

    Gentle and consistent movement does help. I get bloated in the morning when I wake up but it goes away only when I'm eating. It gets worse when my abdominal muscles clench up.

    I don't even know what "audio 100" means, so I guess you have mistaken me for someone else on the forum.
