Hey everyone! So, I got a bit of a weird and silly dilemma.... Basically, I know that we should try to stay as indifferent as possible to our symptoms, due to their only role being distraction. The more attention we pay to them, the more they succeed at doing their job at diverting our attention from the emotions we’ve been repressing. Now, one of the symptoms that I’ve been experiencing is facial pallor. To be more specific, the tension in my head and facial muscles causes restriction of blood flow to the face, giving it a really pale and colorless look. I’m not really sure how to stay indifferent to this... Whenever I’d go outside and see that women aren’t really paying attention to me (while previously, I used to regularly lock eye contact with girls on the street), I’d get really frustrated with this symptom, which in turn makes it more successful at doing its job. On a rare occasion that I am not pale, girls would pay attention to me again, and I’d just start fearing the reappearance of the pallor... which again, prevents me from being indifferent. I was thinking of staying inside for a while (a few weeks), avoiding seeking attention while trying to get more in touch with my emotions, but then this also would mean that I wouldn’t be indifferent to the symptom—I’d stop going outside just because of it! I am really lost when it comes to what I should be doing and I’d appreciate any advice! I’ve just recently found out about TMS, and am still trying to figure everything out! THANK YOU!!
