Musing here, after reading Alan Gordon's post on fear. http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/fear-thoughts.11426/ Some voice, aspect is saying "You/I am never safe" in severe tms. To get rid of tms you gotta not fear the symptoms, get on with living. Thats what I hear is tms treatment in summation. HOW do you reverse the lifelong condition of not feeling safe in the world. It does seem to be an existential angst but to the extreme. The mindbody creates these tms symptoms, Oh Oh best to stay right here, hunker down. Dont look out there---SCARY! Look right here, stay right here. Ive dubbed this SmotherMother. What is the antidote? To keep looking out THERE. To create action toward "out there" and continually in mind and body and vision to keep the focus and momentum to the great "out there"? Am I on to something useful here?
