I am hoping someone with more TMS insight might be able to help me with working on what feelings I need to address. All of my physical manifestations over the past 4 years have all been triggered by health anxiety scares. Once my tests cleared me of any health issues I was able to get abck to normal until the next issue. This go around I have developed anxiety that is not going away as easily. In learning TMS, I know that each health scare created physical pain and I know it all left once my mind was clear. I think this go around my mind wants me to address the real issue. I just can't figure out if the health anxiety is the cause or trigger. Am I afriad of death, leaving my faily alone without me? Or is that simply just a trigger that allows deeply repressed emotions out. For example, my mother has been a really bad mother to me and my whole life I yearned for her to change. I tried to change her from her gossiping ways. She never calls or comes to see me and only calls to complain about her life. Maybe she is the repressed stress. Sure, it makes me sad but I ahve come to accept that she is who she is and it won't change. What do I need to do further....express my feelinsg to her? I can think through a bunch of items from my past that are not ideal but how to you really focus in on the issue that you need to focus in on? My TMS was pain focused only in my leg until I started taking sleeping pills for my Insomnia. I recall thinking that the pills made me feel funny becuase I knew they were classified as an old school antidepressant. I hate the thought of being medicated. Maybe my head sensation and anxiety are linked to my fear of the pills I am taking.
