Hi all, I have been on the process to recovering from TMS, after 3 years of different chronic conditions such as tendinitis, sciatica, and shoulder/neck pain. I have improved a lot in the past 6-7 weeks after reading Dr. Sarno's book and following the pain recovery program. I have been doing well with journaling and mindfulness. I was beginning to be very optimistic about my full recovery. But then, unexpectedly, my 4-year relationship was ended by my ex partner. We lived together and worked together. We also have a dog together. It has been so hard because we had major plans to move together to another country early next year, and I had a lot of dreams and expectations. We always had a great relationship based on trust and love so it has hit me really hard to be betrayed by someone I loved so deeply (And who I was sure felt the same way). I also have a feeling he was tired of all my health problems and looking after me, which also makes me feel bad about myself. Since we lived together, I am also having a bigger financial burden because I have to pay for the house and its expenses by myself, and also my dog's expenses. This whole situation is very overwhelming and I feel I am regressing back to TMS symptoms because I cannot find the strength to continue to program as I did before all this happened. Does anybody have any experience with coping with difficult emotional times while recovering from TMS? Any guidance or advice would be appreciated.
