The recent thread on food intolerance that I replied to a few times has really shone a light on how easily distracted I am from the TMS diagnosis. As some of you know by now, I started feeling dizzy constantly and having daily headaches after a very traumatic time in my life. That was 8 years ago and I spent that time investigating the physical side of things - doctors, acupuncture, allergists, ENTs, neuros, MRIs, CAT scans, even lumbar punctures! Every result I've had from any test in this time has been normal. I developed RSI last year and I found this website. I cured my hand pain in a week. And then I started to join the dots and wonder if it's all been TMS for all this time. What a revalation. But I didn't manage to 'cure' myself in a week this time around. My main issue is doubt. What if it's not TMS? What if I'm wasting my time? What if I'm missing something else I could be working on. Food is the main culprit - I've never established a link between food and symptoms. But I'm constantly distracted by this or that diet, supplement etc. that could help me. I started seeing Georgie Oldfield a few weeks ago, I'm doing the TMS work, but what I am struggling with is BELIEF. I understand on a physical level how TMS works, I accept it could be causing my problem but I struggle to whole heartedly BELIEVE that it is. This means that all day long my thoughts are plagued with what ifs, doubts, negative thoughts. I really need help finding faith. I've never had faith in anything before. It's foreign to me to believe in something and stick to it, to be patient enough not to need immediate results. Is there anything you guys use to remind yourselves throughout the day that there is no need for your brain to look for other answers, solutions. And to stop those negative thoughts like 'it's not going to work' and 'everyone else can do it but you wont be able to' or 'youre not doing the TMS healing right' TL,DR I need help staying focused on TMS work, and not letting my own thoughts convince me it won't work or that there is something else I should be doing like trying new diets etc.
