Hi all, One of my biggest struggles with this TMS journey has to do with cycles. I'm sure many of you have been there. I can go a few days (and up to a couple of weeks, sometimes a bit longer) accepting my symptoms and not fighting or resisting them or being afraid of them. Then, all of a sudden, out of the blue, on any given day I can start to become afraid again. When this happens, I do my best to calm myself down and remind myself of everything I know to be factual about TMS. But sometimes the fear lingers and causes me to spiral downwards into a nasty setback which can usually take 1-2 weeks to work myself out of. Then I'll start accepting and not being afraid of my symptoms anymore, but on any given day the same old fears can pop up and scare me, sending me back into the loop again. 1) Why can you feel so well emotionally for weeks, and then all of a sudden become afraid and start to panic again? I know what my symptoms are, I know the cause, and I know the solution -- and I can do well for a while but for seemingly no reason at all, on any given day I can suddenly feel the symptoms and become afraid again. 2) How does one come to a point where the cycles finally stop, and he/she finally comes to a place where the fear is extinguished for good? Is this just practice and persistence? Thanks for any help and encouragement!
