I have two sisters, two cousins, a niece and many others I know that have TMS as well. I've sent them links, given books and explained to some degree about why they have pain. I have told them I'm starting to feel better. They don't respond, and they disregard the information. I don't get it? Would they rather feel pain and go to doctors that can't help them? I really try now to not talk about it; what's the sense? But it's so frustrating to know that I could help someone else with their pain. I know you have to be ready to receive this information. I know a lot of people (maybe including me earlier on) still believe something is wrong, someone is missing something, the doctors can help. I researched and researched everything on the internet until I found TMS on my own. If I hadn't stumbled on the Curable app, I probably would have still gone from doctor to doctor. I believe the medical community is largely responsible for not making us aware of TMS because they can't make money off telling people to journal, meditate, read books or go onto the TMSwiki for information. That's why I want to spread the word, but no one will listen because it's not mainstream. I feel as though I have to repress this which isn't good for the process...in addition, it creates a little doubt for myself that others don't believe this.
