Hi everyone, I've been on the forums for a few weeks, and I've posted a little about myself so far and my TMS journey. I feel like I've made progress, but the past week or so, I've been feeling really down. Yesterday, no matter what I did I felt miserable. I haven't been particularly happy for a long time, but it's much worse now. I feel like my self-esteem has dropped as a result of all the journalling I've been doing, which has uncovered old wounds and made me think a lot about family neglect and being bullied. I know it's important work, but it's making it very hard for me to be self-loving and kind to myself when all the cruel things people have said and done are swimming round in my head. I'm not really sure how to move past this. I'm finding it very hard to be motivated, I'm dreading work everyday - not because of my hands anymore but because I'm finding it emotionally draining. Last night I had a dream that I was terminally ill, and no one would help me. It was horrible and left me feeling very drained today. Has anyone else been through anything similar? If so, what helped you get through the times when you just want to curl up under the covers and not come out?
