Question Since my father's death 5.5 years ago, I (an only child) have been my 85-year-old mother's pretty-much constant companion and caregiver when she is unwell. During this time, I have experienced many physical symptoms which went away via TMS awareness, journaling, etc. in view of this, do you have any hints regarding my day-to-day interactions with her, since she tends to be rather hard-to-please and controlling? I want to keep my physical symptoms at bay.
