Question Hi, I have a question about what to focus on primarily with regard to getting rid of TMS pain. I've heard a lot of talk about ignoring symptoms, or overcoming the fear of symptoms, but I've also read a lot about repressed emotions and self-compassion and such. These sound like two completely different approaches. Which is the right treatment plan? How do you know what to focus on?
