    Hi Gigi,

    I know the feeling. AND, I believe someone (like me) who is TMS-prone is going to have a pattern of my mind always throwing something at me now and then.

    The discouragement, deflation, etc... is probably a form of subtle resistance to going back into the healing work of TMS... Thinking psychological, digging into unwanted or threatening emotions. That can be so uncomfortable, right?!

    And so we resist, or ruminate, or say, "why me? Not again!"

    BUT

    You are a warrior. You have defeated TMS in so many places. You have been victorious in so many battles!

    If this has been there for 35 years, then it's one of TMS's main strongholds. Perhaps it's final one...

    You've done this before. You are an expert. You are a champion. I believe in you.

    With love and gratitude,
    Aziz

    Thank you Aziz! What a wonderfully encouraging post! I AM having success, which is a blessing.
    This program works in part because of the great support we provide each other. We call each other out when necessary, we encourage, bolster, and cheer each other.
    Such a gift.

    All is well. I'm working the program, esp Alan's new one, and even though I had back to school in about 10 days, l'm really feeling blessed.
    How are things with you, Marcia?

    Hi @Gigi,

    My fellow insomniac!

    I can relate to how you are feeling.

    I've read a lot of books but I am finding Total Catastrophe Living to be very helpful right now.

    I know it is a classic but for me if feels really complimentary to TMS healing.

    Thinking of you!

    Thanks, AC! I'll try to find it. As a librarian, I'm always grateful when someone recommends a book to me.
