Identifying the triggers of your symptoms is extremely important. Begin to examine what is going on whenever your symptoms begin. Think about what was going on in your life at the time your TMS began. Once you recognize the triggers of your symptoms, begin to think of ways to nullify them.

Educational Activity: Understanding the physiology of TMS is important in understanding how and why your symptoms began. Today's educational reading is called Miracles of Mindbody Medicine, by TMS therapist Alan Gordon. There are also two sections of the article written by TMS practitioners Audrey Berdeski and Georgie Oldfield. This article gives insight into the drain that chronic pain has on the economy, along with information on the future of mind-body medicine. Click Here to read the full article.

Q & A with an Expert: In this article Dr. Howard Schubiner responds to a very interesting question: My pain started long ago. Will it take a longer time to get rid of it? This question is very pertinent to anyone who has suffered from a chronic condition for a considerable amount of time. To access the article click this link.

For today's journal activity you need to write an Unsent Letter to somebody or something that is causing you current stress. This could be your boss, family member, or even the company you work for. Feel free to truly express how this person makes you feel, and how they are contributing to your TMS symptoms. This may involve addressing previously repressed emotions, such as sadness or anger. Remember that this letter will not be sent, therefore you can write exactly how you feel and not be afraid of any consequences. Pick one item from your current stress list and add it to the prompt below.
