I'm on day 25 now, and I was prompted to post about how things are going. This is my second time through the SEP (I didn't fully finish the first time and figured it would be good to have a reminder of all the lessons and tools I learned). I haven't been using the forum much, but I'm going to try to change that, because I think it would be helpful. I've had a lot of ups and downs this time around. I seem to keep getting stuck on my hypochondria of the TMS symptoms I have. For example, I have either intense face pressure or dizziness nearly every day. Its not all the time, it comes and goes (which should be a clear sign its TMS), but when it peaks, I often start to panic a little. I'm mostly worried that its a sign of something serious and untreatable (yes, the stereotypical brain tumor-type hypochondria). I know that it will go away eventually and I'll be fine in maybe an hour, and I tell myself that over and over. But I'm having a problem with only partially believing myself. I'm not sure whats holding me back. The logical part of my brain is fully on board with TMS. I've uncovered many sources of my TMS over the past 6 months of so (when I started the SEP the first time). Uncovering many of them has helped a lot in general, but some of them are situations that are very difficult to change, which may be partly why the symptoms keep nagging at me. For example, moving away for a new job this past year I realized was a major trigger, and I was able to uncover many negative emotions surrounding that, but I also can't change the fact that I am still very far away from my family and it is very hard to meet new people. There are a few more examples like this. I guess I'm just fairly frustrated at this point in the process. I feel like I'm taking steps backwards lately.
