I started reading this book about how fear can make you sick and how to unlearn fear: https://www.amazon.com/Fear-Cure-Cu...8&qid=1467747145&sr=1-3&keywords=lissa+rankin It looks like it really punched my ego in a gut, because I could see myself on almost every page of it. Instead of an expected relief from my epiphany, however, I descended into a new prolonged bout of anxiety over every act of courage I decided to undertake upon reading. I went from 90% good nights of sleep to barely 50%. I spent my long weekend nearly incapacitated by indecision, anxiety and feeling of knot in my stomach, like I was supposed to jump of the cliff. My TMS symptoms that were very slowly going down, are now up quite a bit. Is it another extinction burst or am I going back to where I started? There is one action that I know I need to take at work, which is to stand for something good and stick my neck out, as nobody else in the office had volunteered so far. Consequences could be quite unpleasant as no upper management likes truth tellers. The book encourages me to listen to my Inner Pilot Light (as she calls it) and bravely speak the truth. I suspect that I owe my symptoms, at least in part, to the situation at work and may need it to be resolved in order for me to get completely clear of symptoms. I may not get the situation resolved but at least I will feel that I did all I could and it may help me live through my emotions and get a closure. But can I bear the risk and the hell that may break loose at work? Any advice?
