Having read the Divided Mind and found myself to be a classic case (difficult childhood, goodist, PTSD, emotion-swallower, perfectionist, etc.) I have been working on uncovering and identifying my many sources of rage, anger, sorrow, pain. I hope a regular, structured practice via tmswiki will help me begin to eliminate my symptoms and provide hope. I have symptoms of IBS-D and another painful condition both of which are excellent distractions in their intensity. At this point I am desperate and discouraged. My mind is pretty good at convincing me I am powerless but I still battle against that notion. I want to believe I do have the ability to make these symptoms stop.
