I need some encouragement please. I have lower back pain and balance issues- spondylolisthesis 2 years and vertigo 1year.I definitely know and believeit is TMS.Both issues have improved a lot but just recently I have developed anxiety first thing in the morning.I am aware of Dr Claire Weeks as I suffered from this 25 years ago and was able to use her method for overcoming it.I live in a over 50’s resort and my neighbour who has the beginnings of dementia has just moved out.We were really good friends having both been in education.Unfortunately over the last 4 years she became reliant on me for her welfare and would come over every day and because I don’t like conflict I never set boundaries .This came to a head when I spent a week in hospital a year ago with vertigo and I had to tell her she was welcome to come over but not every day.At this time I had the occasional spell of anxiety in the morning.Once I am out and about I am feel slightly better.I have also had 3 falls with my dog because of balance problems. I put into practice 1.Outcome Independence2.Conditioned Response.3and Claire Weeke’s methods. I do have the typical TMS’ers personality although now I am 76 and widowed I have slowed down a lot. It is the anxiety that I am having trouble with and I am aware this work has to come from myself.It is just so difficult. Encouragement please?
