Are you having success at recognizing the emotions connected to your pain? If you have, how do these emotions make you feel? If not, what do you think is preventing you from doing this? I am having some success at recognising emotions connected to my symptoms (brain fog/fatigue). For example, I was jourballing free writing on a past stressor (getting dumped when I was 12) and I realised a theme of my young life was losing people: individuals and groups. I knew there must be repressed sadness and grief, and repressed panic/confusion. I stayed with the feeling and gave it half an hour of time with just somatic tracking it. Something was stirring in my body: it mostly came out as fatigue and heavyness. What has me questioning, is: 'was I feeling sadness/confusion if I wasn't crying/welling up and/or having racing thoughts/fast heartbeat?' (my typical sadness/confusion response). The thing is, I'm not 100% convinced these were actual emotions... Or if they were just what my body was naturally going through at the time anyway. What might be stopping me? Well ive done somatic tracking for s few months before this, and been doing deep work with therapists/coaches for a couple of years prior to finding TMS. I have gone over some of this stuff already, with them... Perhaps that means some of this is dealt with already. I really want to feel the emotions. Perhaps that desire to feel them is also blocking them.
