This is an interesting development and perhaps some one can weigh in. I realized that most of my TMS recovery has been sloppy and then very obsessed and trying too hard. A while back I wrote about letting go of the reins. What I realized I was doing was actually wanting to stop trying so hard. I feel a bit embarrassed that this whole time I had not been able to practice true acceptance. Acceptance means taking life with out without pain. I couldn’t really do that. I started practicing acceptance with anxiety and I started to have really great days. What I notice now is the pain and anxiety seem to flip flop. Anxiety goes away and then pain comes on. Acceptance is easy some days other days not so much. These last couple days have been great. Not pain free but not horrible pain. Yesterday I went to visit my friend. His wife has had GERD for years. I had a great time with my friend. On the way home I started having pressure in the middle of my chest, very tight hiatal GERD type stuff? Whoah! It came and went. I was able to go to bed and sleep perfectly and upon waking it picked up where it left off. It’s in the process of coming and going. Is this symptom imperative?
