    did not expect for today's session to be so emotional. first journaling experience writing about a past experience and wow I'm still crying.
    the reading part of today's lesson was helpful too - it's so clear and obvious now to me that the mind and body are one -- how did i not realize this all along -- and if I can be easily reduced to tears thinking about certain past events, it's no wonder I'm feeling physical pain.
    being instructed to say out loud today "I have TMS" was very helpful. I also said out loud -- "my way of dealing with my emotions is causing me physical pain -- i have to change the way i deal with my emotions"
    This might be the hardest thing to accept and let go of -- the idea that my way of feeling and expressing myself is self-destructive. I like my self image of a highly functioning person and it's hard to admit to myself that I'm wrong (hello perfectionist and goodist!!!!!)
