I've been having a TMS attack this past week with anxiety and upper back/neck pain. When trying to think about what's going on that could be causing this I hit on the following. My daughter is due to give birth in about a month. I am of course happy about this. However, my last 2 grandchildren (from another child) were born with a genetic disease and we all went through many traumatic times and both small children are today disabled. When the first child was born, they attributed his problems to a virus and the parents were told there was no reason to think this would happen again. However, lightening hit twice when the next child was born with similar symptoms but no virus. It was then that they realized it was genetic. My daughter has been tested and doesn't carry the gene but I've seen so many exceptions to the rule and things go wrong that it's hard for me to internalize the fact that there isn't anything to worry about. As I thought about this earlier, all of a sudden I started to cry. I didn't realize how scared I am. As I'm writing this I'm starting to feel a bit of relief so I must be on to something. Any thoughts or tips are welcome.
