Im on day 8 now of the SEP and I hate to admit but i haven’t been consistent on doing it daily. This is what im trying to change. What i find so interesting is that consciously I know that my CPPS pain (chronic pelvic pain syndrome) is exclusively from my negative thought pattern and loop that ive gotten myself in. A year ago, I thought that there was something physically wrong with me and of course my pain was much worse. My pain now is much more tolerable which im thankful for but now I’m still avoiding social situations and I must force myself to do them rather than look forward to them because I’m worried ill have a flare in pain. Im wondering if anyone feels like it’s a constant battle with their conscious and unconscious mind? My conscious mind believes the TMS theory because ive sen for myself that when im in a good headspace, the pain is either very tolerable or gone. When im in a neagive and anxious head space (which can be pretty often) the pain is much worse. The anger part of TMS is interesting, If I have a fit of rage or anger, the pain is GONE. Of course I don’t want to be angry all the time but the pain sucks too. I understand the concept of repressed rage now and I realize I have lots of it, I just don’t know how to change the way I think and the way I don’t express my rage (in a healthy way).
