    Sometimes spasms come on randomly and it's ok. It really is.

    Oh my! Thank you everyone, Alan, Plum Eugene and really everyone who posts. This is so helpful. I have noticed all the same patterns with the fear, pressure ,criticism etc. Of course I want it all to happen overnight, however I know that this is procedural learning and it takes time. It’s so helpful to have it reframed(when there are set backs) that it is part of the learning curve. I have learned through Alanon and other 12 step programs, however this is its own process, even if there is overlap. It’s changing a thinking pattern. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wisdom experience strength and hope.I loved hearing that even if there are set backs, the knowledge that is does work is the gem.So when I have a tantrum, I can rock that part of myself and calm her rather than beat her up....and even knowing when and hoe to do that is a process. In gratitude, jeannie

    Criticism: My Mom was extremely critical of me and others. She lived to be 101 and I took care of her for the last 13 years of her life, not to mention the other 60 years that she was a big part of my life. So...if criticism is a signal that alerts my pain centers, I guess I fit right in here!!
    I am making changes in my life to feel better. So have patience with me! I have trouble adapting to new theories!
