All - I had a great week last week. I had so many wins. Finally accepted tension as the cause of my head/eye issues at 100% Able to go out to places where I had perceived light sensitivity and feel fine. Feel the tension in my head, sore temples and gauge it get worse as my stress grew during a sink install Sleep all week normal again No panic attacks for two weeks now Enjoy TV shows and normal tasks again I was finally able to associate my issues with my lack of addressing FEAR. I was so caught up in analyzing my childhood and digging around in my past I failed to realize that while my past was not ideal, I had accepted that already. My issue which was pointed out by my wife and seconded by my therapist was I had a pretty easy go of life as an adult up until now. No death, sickness in my family, no job struggles or money issue. I had never struggled in life so my toolbox was void of any real world experience to handle FEAR. Not the fear of a home invasion, money, kids getting kidnapped etc... I am able to acccept those scenarios as possibilities that may or may not happen. For me, I was not able to accept the FEAR of possibly being sick which is going to happen. I had no measure of adversity in my life to draw off of. After reading Balto's post, listening to Claire Weekes Audios and reading the bible I now know I was allowing the FEAR of my head and eye sensations to run wild. Focusing on the What ifs, will I ever..... So now..I am applying multiple tools to retrain my thinking. I am using positive affirmations, reading the bible and handing this over to God. I also realize my thinking was 'Out in the future' and worrying about things that are not realistic and worrying about the what ifs. Using this I have been able to get almsot back to where I was when I first started to focus on this back in November. So I need to get the last 10% done. I still symptom check, still allow my mind to imagine I have light sensitivity even though I didn't have it all weekend. I still allow my mind to think that my sore temples won't go away. All of this but I don't let it get to the high anxiety level anymore. Now its just nagging and annoying. Anyone have any advice for a person at the level I am...almost over the hurdle but just can't get over the hump. I havelived with this for 3 months and its hard to imagine not having it if that makes sense. I imagine anyone else would deem the head tension and constant eye sorenes as a 1 out of 10 but its happening to me and I can't break away even though I have come so so far.
