As I am learning it seems that fear and worry are the big bugaboos. My big distraction is the news. Between Trunews and mainstream news Ive been talking to myself in HUGE fear thoughts such as, it must be the end times, things will only get worse, will I face decapitation, will the economy tank and on... Now these fear thoughts do seem reasonable, possibly true. And will keep me from getting better with tms because they arent the fears associated with symptoms which I have to work on, but existential fears of safety and having a future. How will I be able to use these tms modalities to get better in this sort of climate of fear? I believe I can get well. I believe I can work on not fearing, having compassion on my symptoms. How do I feel I guess unmoved by the state of the world and its seeming trajectory of not better and better but worser and worser?
