Hi, I've made a lot of progress with my physical pains and even my chronic fatigue to some degree. Something I keep getting stuck on is my frequent 'crashes'. One of my biggest symptoms is sensitivity to sound, I also have some damage to my ear canals so they are larger now which I think keeps me stuck on the issue (i have a collagen issue which makes the cartilage softer). I think because of this physical issue I see my ears as being vulnerable. I've been pushing myself to go to places I wouldn't normally - restaurants, pubs, busy streets, I have fun whilst I'm out, it's after that I totally crash, I feel bombarded and want to get away from any sensory stimulation. I hide away in my bedroom just wanting to be on my own. I feel on edge and hypervigilant and my ears scream with tinnitus. I'm not really sure how I can break out of this cycle. I'm doing the journaling work, I have weekly sessions with a tms psychotherapist and I'm currently doing a course in EFT. Has anyone had similar experiences with crashes?
