I've been having a huge difficulty in talking to my TMS therapist about traumatic events that have occurred in my life. With the last session my therapist spoke very briefly about another patients traumatic event and when I heard about it I thought to myself, "wow, that's so terrible and sad, how can I even consider talking about my events when shitty things like that have happened to other people." To add fuel to the fire my Mom and I had an argument the other day and in the midst of it she went off on me about a horrible story about a child being locked up in their basement most of their life. I was getting the impression from her of: "suck it up, your problems aren't anything compared to others." I feel like I can't talk to anyone (therapist included) about much of my past without feeling guilt. I can't understand either why my symptoms were so bad if my traumatic events weren't as bad in comparison to others. I know I shouldn't compare to others, but it's a hard habit to break. Maybe my symptoms has more to do with the other 2/3rds (my personality and current stressors)? Any words would help. Thank you all so much for reading this.
