I found out recently that I struggle with TMS. Apparently I've had it for many years. I was run over by a forklift 26 years ago and suffered a severe crush injury to my leg and the pain is still with me. It's migrated to various other parts of my body over the years. I've been seeing doctors the entire time. We've tried EVERYTHING. I've also tried all the holistic approaches I could think of. At my wits end, I happened across a retreat in the mountains where Dr. Schubiner was speaking and found (in a very short time) that this is all TMS. I'm extremely relieved to find that there's nothing wrong with me. And extremely angry that it took 26 years to find the right path. Now I just need to conquer this. I've had remarkable results already. Literally the day I learned about this, my pain disappeared. It is coming back in spurts since then. I'm working through the Unlearn Your Pain book and am struggling with the writing portion. I'm not a writer and feel pretty uncomfortable about it. I'm leaning toward not doing that step and concentrating more on meditation, mindfulness, self-talk and positive thinking. And I'm working on being kinder to myself. I also think I might benefit by seeing a therapist, but the process of finding the right person is quite overwhelming to me. Perhaps someone can guide me in how to find a good therapist that specializes in TMS without spending tons of money or time? I live at least 80 miles from the nearest therapist listed on the directory here. And I wouldn't know who to start with anyway. How in the world do you decide who to even make the first call to? The stress and anxiety about this one step is really overwhelming me. I think I'm doing really well with the positive parts of this process, but I do have a huge pile of issues that I'm sure need to be dealt with from my past.
