I am an incredibly reactive guy. When someone does something or something happens that pisses me off, It’s a rather automatic response for me to get angry and feel that anger. But one thing I don’t seem to allow myself to feel is sadness, and the few times I have broken down and cried I have had a temporary but total decrease in my TMS symptoms. I know Dr. Sarno believed that at the root of all unconsciously repressed emotions that lead to TMS, rage was at the center of it all. Not sure if that’s the case for me. If I dig deeper I usually find that anger is just a cover up for my feelings of sadness. Any thoughts?
