"...write a forum post on how you are doing so far, and what apprehensions you may have about this treatment or your life in general." In general, I have experienced enough change in my symptoms that I should be 100% convinced this is TMS. Generally, old pain is much better. New TMS symptoms pop up and then go. So why to I feel anxious about this? Why to I doubt the possibility of feeling great? I even find myself imagining that others don't believe that this is TMS and that I will be right back to where I started (again!). For example, when I told my therapist this week how much improved I am, what a miracle, etc. I imagine that she is not enthusiastic enough, therefore, she must not believe it. Same when I tell my son. He sounds underwhelmed. This must be me projecting my own doubts. Why? Not sure, but I have tried so many kinds of treatment and then would start to feel better, start to be happy and imagine better life only to have pain return. Is it possible that this very fact is proof of TMS diagnosis? (Although I had not experienced this much improvement for this long ever before.) This sounds paradoxical but perhaps the prospect of a life without the old limits is wonderful but scary (to my unconscious!). Now that I have written this I realize that I am terrified that this is not TMS and/or I will not get better! Help.
