I've had various TMS type symptoms over the years - cystitis, frozen shoulder, headaches, bad back for brief periods, but this past August came the whammy, eventually diagnosed after MRI as prolapsed disc causing back pain and sciatica. It's got worse in the succeeding months. But my first week of the program has been good. I've gone from strong painkillers ever 4 hours, to pain relief as and when. I've walked a lot, and worked hard on my journal. I quickly recognised how much anger I'm storing - me who comes across as the least angry person you could meet. And I realise how much I've pushed it down with inner talk about my happy childhood, fortunate, talent blessed, married, lovely grown up children, grandchildren, satisfying work etc. when the world is full of trouble, cruelty and misery. What right had I to be angry of all things?! But now I recognise that this inner angry person or child needs to be heard, and has things to tell me. In my work I am confident, relaxed, joyful, competent, while at home in my relationship I am apologetic, inwardly critical, outwardly compliant and completely lacking in confidence.
