I have been doing Schubiners program from his book Unlearn Your Pain with some success. However I also have terrible anxiety that is keeping me from working. I've tried using the MBS principles on it as well as meditation, breathing techniques, the Claire Weekes approach. Many days it is more debilitating than the pain (fibromyalgia). It all started with a thyroid issue where I was over medicated which caused horrendous anxiety for 6 weeks until the medication cleared and I haven't been the same since. I think my brain got wired for anxiety and now I can't seem to rewire. The pain and anxiety build on each other and make each other worse. Anyway the long and short of it is I'm on disability and my doc wants me to take cymbalta for the anxiety. I pretty much have to because otherwise they will cut my benefits. Being a perfectionist I feel like I failed with TMS . Am I okay to do this? I don't want to halt my progress. My perfectionist mind keeps telling me I have to do this without meds.
