I've been doing some journaling for a few weeks now (unlearn your pain book!) with not a whole lot of noticeable results until a couple of days ago. Typically I am very anxious but last night after forcing myself to go for a run despite symptoms (dizziness, fatigue) I began to feel very depressed for a few hours. This is not common for me, I rarely ever feel depressed. An interesting thing I noted is that while I felt like this almost all of the physical symptoms went away. As I began to feel "less depressed" over the course of the evening the symptoms came back. I woke up in the middle of the night full of undirected rage and anger at everyone / anyone. This too is not common for me so I found it interesting. Lot's of TMS posts and books talk about repressed emotions. Could this finally be emotions coming to the surface? It's not specific - I can't tell why I'm feeling the way I am / what specific thing caused it. Oh well. What I do wonder is now that I'm "feeling my feelings" - what do I do about it? I've just been going through the day super upset. Do I just.... encourage that in the name of "feeling my feelings"? Or once I felt and accepted it a bit do something to calm my system back down? This whole process can be confusing and sometimes seems like contradictory ways of healing. Feels like I'm in a labyrinthine maze and the more I try to understand it the more frustrated I get. Maybe TMS healing is getting in the way of my TMS healing!!!
