Yesterday while reading the divided mind I came to the realization that I'm afraid of living without pain/symptoms. My symptoms are much less since finding out about TMS and working on and finishing the SEP. But I'm having crazy symptom imperative. It jumps from one place in my body to the next. Annoying... I've had health problems for so long, I don't really know who I will be without them... Also I feel like without my symptoms I will be able to do so much more (because I won't have the excuse that I'm in to much pain). And I'm afraid that the people around me (and me myself) will expect me to do much more. And I feel stressed about that. I'm a stay at home mom with one child and I'm always busy. I don't know how other mothers with more than one child handle it all (r-e-s-p-e-c-t!). My days are full as it is. I feel like this is holding me back from recovering more than anything else... Has anyone else had this experience? Any tips on overcoming this hurdle?
