How did you keep motivated when TMS didn't seem to be working? I am feeling disheartened that I seem to be getting worse, despite doing so much TMS work and following the program, with my symptoms getting more intense and spreading (in the same area (pelvic pain) not new symptoms like I read about with symptom imperative). I've read about symptoms worsening but I thought that was only for a few days? It's been several weeks and I am finding my enthusiasm and belief in TMS is diminishing and I'm getting worn down because I haven't made progress and have gone in the wrong direction! I'm feeling quite defeated, largely in part from asking my husband to read The Mindbody Prescription. He told me he saw 'some sense' in it but now that I am worsening he keeps wanting to make me appointments with new drs which makes me keep pondering a 'structural' problem. (Nothing significant could be found to be wrong but several gynolcologists told me "...we often don't pinpoint the exact problem - which doesn't mean that nothing is wrong... just nothing dangerous or that could explain your pain..." very helpful!). So for the people who took a long time to heal, how did you keep the belief and motivation?
