I feel like I'm making slow, steady progress with my TMS recovery. Some of my symptoms have practically disappeared (knee pain, constipation, neck pain)! Some of my symptoms linger, better some days and worse others (e.g. GERD, RSI). Almost a year ago I quit work due to burn out. I would come home from work absolutely exhausted every day. I decided to take a few months off to restore, and it was during this time that I discovered TMS! Now that I feel restored and my health is improving, I'm starting to look for work again. But even in the process of looking for work, I could feel my old "burnout" pathways returning. I decided to start work with a TMS therapist. I've had one session so far with Alex Bloom, a therapist who trained with Alan Gordon. It was excellent! During the session we explored how I used my high achievements in school to "distract" me from emotional troubles that I was having. This set up a pattern where my inner bully puts a lot of pressure on for success and achievement as a kind of band-aid to cover up inner hurt. I'm looking forward to more exploration of these underlying, old emotions.
