    Through my journaling I am noticing a significant trend of social anxiety and performance anxiety. I have been reflecting on a lot on individual experience from my childhood and they are quite emotional for me. I am slightly concerned that I am not unearthing any sort of repressed rage or anger which is the basis for TMS. Has anyone else with TMS felt this way? Any advice?

    From what i understand you can't obsessively try to uncover hidden causes, as this is a source of TMS tension. Just being aware of anxiety and being real with how you feel when you journal about is enough. Its nice to have a cathartic insight but equally important to just radically accept how you feel in this moment...right now.

    I agree with Lonewolfbunny, and I would add that by exploring this with your journaling/remembering
    these experiences, though perhaps not anger, will take you where you need to go to understand TMS in you. In other words, trust the process and allow it to deepen and reveal. These journaling experiences will probably help you do this too, over time:

    Interestingly i really needed to re-read my own advice here...since i am dealing with some strange dental/sinus issues which has been ruled out by a dentist as being anything "physical". But I have a great deal of feat around more problems in this area...due to an extensive restoration implant etc still ongoing...healed but awaiting a crown. Anyhow...i told myself if the dentist said i am fine the doscomfort will go. Hahahahaha. Not so quick smarty pants. I want it to go! I am watching for it to go. Here lies the problem. I could get deep in thought, and attach this latest bought of pain to car troubles, financial troubles, work disappointments, and just a myriad of adulting that I hATE! Which I think is the root of my TMS. A large part of me hates being interupted by life obligations. I am like a toddler. I dont wanna. And when i accept that part...which os hard and rather shameful...maybe I get closer to the 'why'.
