    I feel so over whelmed on the amount of information regarding battling tms , it's very hard to know what route to take...any suggestions.

    Just pick one of the structured programs and only do that daily. There is the SEP on this site, and Unlearn Your Pain by Schubiner, as well as others.

    Hi again Marco,

    I had the exact same problem when I started. Here is the conclusion I came to after giving it some thought. Both this forum and the SEP contain a lot of different healing techniques - from living fully in the present through mindfulness meditation to digging up the past through journaling or parts therapy.

    For a while, I felt overwhelmed and I jumped from thing to thing. But now I realize that the reason there are so many approaches is because we are all so different and complex and our stories and life experiences , while similar, are all one of a kind. In other words, what works for you might not work for me. It's a blessing that there isn't a one-size-fits all approach. Reminds of an anecdote a therapist once told me: the reason psychologists are called shrinks is because some try to make you fit into a specific mould (not criticizing these wonderful healers, just reporting an anecdote).

    I simply tried different things, read different books and used a variety of techniques until I found what works best. For now I am finding the parts therapy and affirmations to be most helpful, because they have the gentle touch I need. You'll just know when you try the thing or combination of things that will work in your specific case. Just keep at it and things will become clearer.
    Ellen and Forest like this.
