    As a TMS personality type, I am running into a bit of confusion. I just don't get it. I'm overwhelmed with what to do but really I think the question is more like what NOT to do in this situation. I understand the premise of what TMS is, I 100% believe I have it, but like then what? What do I do with that information?

    My number one TMS symptom imperative is bad anxiety. Ruminations, and a general level of fear of basically life. Anxiety is the reason Im dealing with health issues. Adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances, low immunity, chronic pelvic pain, STRESS. I'm a procrastinator because I am a recovering perfectionist and goodist. Scared to make the wrong move. I am probably in some way even doing it by making this post because I am looking for reassurance but I don't understand what I can do for my anxiety. I am way more anxious when stressed but I am currently always stressed, stuck in a fight or flight battle that I might be coming out of but I feel like I still need tools to deal with fear. Journaling helps release emotions for me but it ultimately doesn't get rid of my anxiety. Can someone give me the low down. Ive read Sarno, Ozanich, Sachs..I'm just missing something. The HOW isn't sinking in for me. Like what is it that im supposed to be telling my brain? What is it I should do daily? Nothing? Meditate? Journal? Breathwork?

    1. Claire Weekes. I played her audios many times in a row every day.
    2. Meditation.
    3. Routine, easy enough to follow and stick to.
    4. Outcome independence - the hardest part.

    I literally started her book “Self Help for Your Nerves” last night. Thank you for your other insights. This helps.

    You are welcome. FYI. I found listening being more effective for me than reading. Somehow, her very voice had a calming effect on me.
