Hey all, I've been 100% pain free from my TMS symptoms for quite awhile...yay! Here's the thing, I'm relatively young and I never viewed my life as stressful, but I made it stressful. My fear is that as I get older, I'm noticing life stressors that I can avoid, but I don't want to. For example I'll be getting married soon and I love this person, but I can sense my id getting angry over losing my freedom. I feel the same way when we talk about having a kid and buying a house, all exciting but stressful life changing stuff. I'm also considering a much needed career change, but some of my options will be full of stressful situations or sad ones. My question is, how do you deal with these situations without having the TMS pains return? I know there are doctors, EMTs, therapists, etc who have to deal with traumatizing things daily, but these people also heal from TMS. What do you think it takes to handle those kinds of stressful jobs or life changes regularly and not fall back into having symptoms? I feel avoiding them will leave me unfulfilled and is also a form of TMS, but just the thought of doing something different worries me. Thanks in advance!
