Thought I would introduce myself as I have been finding the TMS information very helpful after a long break thinking it would not work for me. I live on the coast in southern England (there is a clue in my name) and I have suffered from headaches and migraine since childhood. I came from a very repressed, military family which moved around a lot and all I can remember is being terrified of my father, constant anxiety and "walking on eggshells". Because of my anxiety and pain I became addicted to both alcohol and painkillers but I'm now 3 years sober thanks to AA and Coda (where I find a lot of the personality traits very similar to TMS) Life is difficult at the moment as I am having to sell my house due to not being able to work because of 2 heart attacks in the last couple of years as well as the headaches and migraine which are more or less daily. I'm also having to look at my relationship with my wife who is still drinking. Since returning to the TMS fold I have found some relief and I'm sure this is at the root of my pain problems. I have committed myself to working this program (but not too hard!) and I look forward to meeting like minded people.
