    Well, it's pretty hard to just pick one person who has been most helpful! I've been greatly uplifted by Walt Oleksy's encouragement and positive words. I've also found Forest, Ellen and Steve Ozanich's posts quite informative and insightful.

    I've been really blessed by each person who has replied to my posts on the Structured Education Program, as it really helps to confirm the TMS diagnosis and get some outside support. Thanks to all of you!! :)

    Also, I wanted to share an excerpt from my journalling today, as I was dwelling on meaning in my life…

    "One of the areas I have been grappling with lately is finding meaning in my life overall, but also in my circumstances. Ultimately my relationship with God gives me meaning and significance, regardless of what I do – or don’t do. I trust Him for love, for salvation, for hope, for joy and for a sense of genuine meaning and fulfilment.

    Having said that, tonight I had a mini “revelation” (or perhaps more accurately, a realisation) that my chronic fatigue has been a wonderful gift. I feel more relaxed than I have ever felt in my life before. I don’t have any pressures or any plans over the next month. I do have goals and ideas I want to achieve, but I don’t have any work to do, appointments booked, or friends I have to catch up with. I can just rest and “be”.

    On the one hand, it can get a bit isolating and lonely. Yet on the other hand… it is freeing. I’m finally learning how to be at peace with myself, with God, and with other people. I’m finding deeper healing. I’m learning how to meditate on God and experience His love even more."

    Journaling is a great way to express yourself , to get those emotions out. To me it was semi helpful I love self talk and being in the moment.

    Right on, Mike. My most used and helpful TMS healing techniques are journaling, self talk, living int he moment, and I add deep breathing.
    I not only talk to myself but I seem to listen to me, too.
