Self regulation and scabs from old wounds

Discussion in 'General Discussion Subforum' started by Forest, Mar 19, 2013.

    The TMS book Pathways to Pain Relief uses a lot of case histories to emphasize certain points or themes. Antoinette's case history demonstrated how one event in the present can, as Dr. Sherman put it, “tear open the scabs from previously healed wounds” and trigger TMS symptoms - in her case, debilitating back pain. It is our knowledge of the TMS process that can help us manage these situations and reduce the effect they have on our overall health.

    For me, before I learned about TMS if I came upon a stressful situation it would completely consume me, and my symptoms would increase . However, now I handle these situations differently. By recognizing when I am TMSing, and can, as Alan routinely says during webinars, take a deep breath and begin to self-regulate. This can make all the difference in the world, especially in minimizing the effect old wounds can have in the present.

    We will actually be discussing Antoinette's case history and the themes and questions it raises in our discussion group this Saturday, March 23rd. As usual, the discussion group will start at 2:00pm EST, and will run until 3:00pm. If you want you can read Antoinette's case history, which spans two short sections called “Childhood Experiences” and “Experiencing the Past in a New Way” in Pathways to Pain Relief.

    you are so right forest- we have to know what to do in those tight spots
    when we get hit out of the blue with a debilitating situation
    if your not prepared with tms therapy knowledge and you are tmsing
    well we know what happens then- skeecccch, ouch, why me!
    but if were prepared and have our wits about us as the 12 reminders reminds us
    then let the rocks roll- ill be ready.
    its so important to know this knowledge in our fight for freedom from
    what some thought could never be done- its real-(the cure)- and its working all the time

    That's a beautiful quote, Eric,
    I sure hope you'll call in some time, perhaps this week. If you'd be up for it, perhaps you could share your thoughts on what is most helpful. I'd love to record it and put it up in the media center, if you are willing to share.
