    Hi,

    Oh yes I definitely am figuring this out.

    Last week, I had a stressful day at work. It is the busiest time of year for me with the start of an academic year at our community college. I also caught a summer cold and was feeling terrible with that. Plus I have TMS.

    Well that day my husband decided he wanted people over for dinner so he bought all the groceries and invited the people over. I was feeling very lousy but went along with it because 'I don't like conflict.'

    Well my TMS symptoms flared up having the guests. My emotions/my body was saying no but I went along with it as not to rock the boat.

    What I needed was - a quiet house to wind down from my day as well as heal from my cold.

    I see these connections much more since I started the program.
