Hi everyone. I haven't been on here in awhile. It's been a very tough year. I have been bed ridden for most of it, but it hasn't been because of pain. Honestly, throughout my life, pain hasn't been much of a factor. Which is why I think it's been so tough working through this as though it's TMS. I don't see very many stories when it doesn't involve pain. I have been going to therapy and they encouraged me to keep going that route because they do believe this is anxiety induced. My symptoms are very fear based. I am terrified of my posture, it has always been pretty bad for someone of a young age, so I tried for a very long time to be aware of it and fix it, but that always caused more pain. I was aware of how i sat, stood, walked, everything and I would start to feel these horrible feelings, like my legs were going to snap under my weight even though I'm skinny. I felt if I sat wrong, my neck would snap, or my muscles/bones would break. I would watch how I walked and would be afraid of my knees collapsing from under me. It got to a point where I was so terrified of affecting my body, that I just gave up and stopped getting out of bed for more than five minutes at a time, because bed was the only 'safe' posture I had left, laying on my back. I have lived this way for almost a year and I just don't know if this could be considered tms. Everytime I go to read Sarno's book, or listen to stories. I get discouraged because I don't feel like my type of problem is included.
