Hi all, In my writing today, I think I realized that I don't outwardly express anger very often, and am not even sure exactly how it feels in the body...besides "hot." I tend to get frustrated, anxious, sad, or scared/worried about any number of things...but I'm not a person who tends to feel (or allow myself to feel) anger. That said, I'm sure a lot of it is repressed and I'm not even aware of it. But I guess it's probably unhealthy to shove the feeling down...for example, when I'm frustrated that my baby needs my constant attention and I'm trying to get something else done. I love her! So I try to focus on that part, and try to be OK...and I think I try to gloss over the anger that I feel on some level. I think Dr. Sarno says you don't have to even feel the anger to relieve the TMS pain...just acknowledge that it's there. But it seems like I don't even know the healthy ways of expressing anger. My parents yelled a lot. My dad had a bad temper. So I think I associate anger with a loss of control...and danger, on some level. I don't want to scare my daughter. SO...how do you guys allow yourselves to feel, and then express and dissolve anger? Actually...as I'm writing this...I realize that usually in the past when I've gotten very angry at my husband, I've started writing...journaling...as this seems to help me feel better without having to yell at him (which is what I really want to do in the moment). So, maybe that's my way of feeling and expressing it, and perhaps it's actually the best way for me. PS...I'm only on about day 16 of the program after starting the program nearly 2 months ago. It's just been nuts trying to find time and energy to do the program. But not being able to do it (and having continued pain) is adding to the frustration. Sigh.
