My introduction! This is my second time doing the TMS Wiki SEP, as I already did the full programme at the end of last year. I can't believe six months has already gone by! I'm motivated to have another try, since I've had Fibromyalgia (especially neuropathic pain) for two and a half years, plus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for about nine months or so. I really believe that I have TMS, and that my symptoms are caused by repressed emotions and stuff going on in my subconscious mind. The only problem is, finding emotional healing and dealing with my repressed emotions hasn't been as easy as I hoped! I thought that finding out my condition has a psychological cause would make it so much easier to deal with, but it's still been hard. Having said that, I'm going to persevere - because I have read that other people have taken years to overcome their TMS symptoms. I know that people with Fibromyalgia/CFS often have more intense repressed emotional issues than people with garden variety back pain (not that any back pain is easy to deal with!) so I need to be prepared for a longer journey… … Response to 20/20 Video: As I watched the video, I started to feel a glimmer of hope again. I admit that after having Fibromyalgia for two and a half years, and CFS for about 8-9 months, I had started to resign myself to living with health issues. But I don’t want to give up. I have done the TMS SEP before, but I want to try again and delve deeper. I want to keep going until I get fully healed! What would a life without TMS mean to you? This is something I feel unsure about. I have all sorts of ideas about what I would like to do in the future! I would like to do a life coaching course, run an online business, travel, maybe even get married… It would also be pretty amazing to be able to live without fatigue, and to live without the fear of crashing or having a severe relapse. I miss being able to socialise as much as I used to. I would like to be more carefree and spontaneous.
