    I really am at my wits end

    My TMS journey started bout two and a half years ago

    Dropfoot, tingling in feet, developed costochondritis

    Read every TMS book

    Journal daily

    Spent thousands

    Been told cos of historic chronic anxiety, isolation and apparent lack of purpose - although I would contest that one - I have every reason not to get better by TMS specialist

    This has been unhelpful, I am now broke and agoraphobic and ,,,,, basically desperate

    I need help but don't now what on earth to do next

    I feel I have left no stone unturned but I want my life back - or at least 'a' life back

    Enough of this

    I can't bear to be the person who doesn't get well I want to be the one who does get well

    Hi, Billiewells, I am so sorry that things are not well. Question for you: what have you done about your anxiety? I was quite desperate with my symptoms until I started focusing on anxiety. Dr. Claire Weekes pulled me out of dire straights when I thought I would not recover:

    Then I took meditation classes for 6 months. Once i was able to sit for meditation for an hour, I noticed that the following day I was feeling better and was less fearful of my symptoms. It took me 2 years to get where i am. The range of psychological issues and variety of our emotional makeups make it hard to follow any specific prescriptions. It took me over a year to really, honestly, stop putting deadlines on my recovery. And only now, looking back, I realize how much desperate desire to recover quickly hampered my recovery.

    Please, do not give up! One thing I learned - the most expensive treatments proved to be the least useful. And I tried some lavish ones, too, including a $450 per hour psychiatrist.
