    I must admit, today I was quite lazy and went through the reading and journaling not paying much attention. It is also insanely warm in the UK, I feel like a body without air or water. Then my brain started working and I noted down things I forgot were traumatic for me when I was a teenager. Will journal about them when it feels right but now at least I know they are there. Anyhow the thing we were supposed to share here about parents, that's what made me go like: oh wait a minute, that's a very personal question... I went defensive straight away because I haven't dealt with it. My dad died 6 years ago and my mum and I talk maybe once a month. So there you go. I don't want to force it, things have been going good and I know those issue are waiting for me, I will get there.

    Those memories of traumatic teenage years could well be from where your TMS pain is coming. Most repressed emotions are personal. The great thing about TMS recovery is, you can keep them private. You don't have to talk to anyone about them, just do the journaling to discover what emotions you are repressing. You are on the right track... don't force anything and be patient that you will uncover the emotions and you will be free of the symptoms.
