I've started working with a TMS therapist and its great. I'm working on really accepting TMS 100%. Today was a good example that its all TMS: during a stressful rushed time at work and I noticed the pain got worse. I realized I felt angry that I was stuck doing what I was doing at that particular time. Not doing it was not an option. Maybe in the future I will explain to the person I was working with what was upsetting about the situation. But there is only so much one can do with folks who will not change (yes, I know, change how I deal with them) ... But my point is the pain just got worse, it was already there before, most of the day. So I'm frustrated: I'm looking for what, if anything is keeping me from accepting the TMS diagnosis 100% (and perhaps I already have), I've done a lot hard and painful work with my regular therapist, I'm pretty aware of my "issues" and I've been reading about TMS for a long, long time, gotten checked out medically and even was diagnosed by a TMS MD. It sounds so simple, but I just want the pain to stop and not have to worry how it's going to and is affecting my life. I know I have to be accepting and patient (not my strong suit) and this sounds so silly but sometimes I think I'm going to be the one with the un-curable case of TMS. I'm sure this is all normal for TMS, but, well, its really tough. Pain hurts, even when you are trying to practice outcome independence and indifference, and its often the worst pain I've ever experienced in my life. Sometimes I wonder if I am unconsciously keeping myself in pain... any thoughts and advice appreciated on any of this! This forum is an amazing resource, so thank you all.
