There have been many positive things since I started doing SEP, it helped me manage the need to address painful emotional things from my life so I don't overwhelm myself by doing it all at once. It made me calmer, as in to stop when symptoms appear and breathe. I don't rush that much anymore, I still rush automatically sometimes and cant control my thoughts on some days, but it is improving. I realised how many symptoms from my past were TMS and it made the picture clearer: now I know a little bit better what caused them. It also helped me get to know myself better, actually to be fair, TMS did that to me. And finally, it helped me overcome the worse TMS ever. Still struggling with symptoms but with less fear. On a different note, I went to the doctor today to check a darker patch of skin on my forehead that has appeared a little after my move to UK. The doctor thinks is melasma and that there si nothing I can do about it. That rung an alarm bell because anytime during my life whenever there was something that the doctors didn't have an explanation for, it turned out to be TMS for me. And there are millions of women suffering from it, and it is usually on the face. What made me think was: even though it is not pain (the classic TMS) you still see it every day when you look in the mirror and it is caused by hormonal changes (autoimmune system). Why doesn't it appear on the rest of the body? Has anyone had any experience with this or heard of other people with this problem as TMS?
