Hi friends, I’m wondering if anyone has advice for frustrations with spouses/partners around TMS issues. As a lot of you know, TMS has been deeply liberating and life changing for me on both a personal and professional level. I consider myself fully healed from TMS and no longer have any pain issues; I am eternally grateful for this! I use it in my practice as a PT as much as I can. Thankfully my husband supported my personal TMS journey,which I know is more than many can say. The issue I’m having is that he recently told me he’s had knee pain on and off for a year and hasn’t wanted to talk much about it with me because I’ll just tell him it’s TMS. He was looking on all kinds of websites and other resources to figure out what is going on. Of course he didn’t find much because,well, I’m 99% sure he indeed does have TMS. He even admitted to me he might have it but doesn’t want my help. He has all the classic TMS signs (inconsistent pain, better on vacation, moves around from knee to foot randomly,has inconsistent physical triggers and conditioning). He overanalyzes it and denies it has any connection to “stress” and doesn’t really buy into the ideas of unconscious emotions. I’m mostly feeling really hurt he hasn’t wanted my help...TMS is such a big part of my identity now I guess it’s just tough to hear. Maybe he’s really resistant to the TMS diagnosis and doesn’t want to go there but it still hurts me. I guess I’m also angry at him even though it’s not fair. I have the medical and TMS knowledge to help him and feel he doesn’t trust me on this. I know it’s a personal journey for each person but I can’t help but feel hurt given my TMS background and feeling like he doesn’t take any of this seriously when I am so invested in it and want to turn my career towards it. Any advice for dealing with this is appreciated!
