Long time reader, first time poster. I need some help and decided to take the plunge. I started the Curable app in 2018, have read all the Sarno books, Unlearn Your Pain, The Way Out, and others. I started The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron back in May and if you aren’t familiar with the book part of the program is to journal every morning, which Cameron calls morning pages. At the 9 week point you are encourage to reread your pages to highlight any themes you see that keep repeating. I did, which rereading was a very stressful time and I felt thoroughly overwhelmed, but didn’t speak up. Mainly my reoccurring gripes were that everyone comes to me with their problems and I don’t want to listen anymore (I’m exhausted), over-giving, and that I want to speak up for myself more. I read these pages Monday and have been home sick since. I know there is a connection, but am I sick from what I read? Or I am I sick from stress? Or does it even matter to know? Of course my mind went straight to thinking about when I got bit by a tick in June and am now being tested for Lyme disease, but my concern is I don’t want Lyme disease, but what if the test is negative and I have been sick because of TMS? Is all sickness TMS? And the real question: how do you start telling people how you really feel?
