Ever since I accepted my TMS diagnosis and started the structured education program, I have found that the main emotion that really brings up my symptoms is frustration, and the anger that comes along with the frustration. I teach music as a profession, and if any of you here are teachers as well, you'll understand how frustrating it can get some times. Not when students don't get it, but when they seem uninterested or just flat out refuse to take your lessons seriously. Then they start to wonder why they've hit a wall, in terms of improvement, and they ask you about it when it is extremely clear to you that they aren't improving because they haven't been following your advice. That is extremely frustrating. Even worse is that we are required to remain professional, so I hide my frustration with a smile and slowly repeat the things that I've already told them a hundred times. This masking of my frustration eventually leads to rage, which I believe is one of the main causes of my TMS. I've also noticed that lessons with students who are constantly improving and receptive of the lessons are much easier and mostly pain-free. Another thing that causes frustration is boredom, and I get bored really easily. But I find that I can easily fix that by distracting my mind with hobbies or some non-frustrating work.
