I wonder if anyone can comment on this. While I'm journaling for the SEP, and it also happened when I was journaling in Schechter's Mindbody Workbook, I notice that I feel more anxiety and my mind is less rested. I'm less present. It's much harder to meditate and my mind jumps all over the place. My friend who cured her TMS pain said that when she journaled, it felt like a big weight was off her shoulders. I don't feel that way. I feel more anxiety sometimes and more fidgety. I had a few days where I felt on the verge of crying (actually did at one point when I was alone).
