This captures your life story in a potted version. It also asks you to identify aspects of your personality that may be fueling or feeding your stress Illness
TMS is becoming more and more understood. I now have over 7 years specialist experience working in this field of mind / body medicine.
We all have a story. Events, situations and trauma can happen to us throughout our lives and some of that which we experience can leave a long-term scar not just consciously but subconsciously.
95% of our thoughts, feelings and behaviour are subconscious, we are not aware of them, so what we are feeling and thinking is just the tip of the iceberg.
Typically people with TMS have been through things in their live that they found unsettling. Feelings such as anger, hurt, grievences, frustrations deep sadness, fear and anxiety over time, play havoc with our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
There is also the current day to day stress that we generate, this can be a build up of minor scenarios or a sudden event that we are confronted with related to our:
Relationships Past and Present
and of course everyday challenges in todays fast paced world
It is said that it is not what happens to us in life but how we process those events that cause the problem. Our unique personality makes us who we are. Typically people suffering from TMS or Mind body Disorders have what is known as a Type A Personality who internalise thier thoughts and feelings.
Below are some of these personality traits that I see in my patients time after time.
Being critical of yourself
Worrying about what others think
Being a worrier
Being a perfectionist or having high expectations of yourself or others
Having low self esteem
Feeling overly dependent on others
Feeling overly responsible or overwhelmed with responsibility
Tending to hold thoughts and feelings in (Internalising)
Having difficulty making decisions
Having difficulty letting things go, particularly hurtful things or things that have enraged you from the past
Not standing up for yourself or expressing yourself for fear of consequenses
When we feel emotional, self induced pressures as identified above along with the anger, worry, hurt, guilt andi worry, hurt, guilt, sadness literally gets bottled up inside of us. These emotions filter through to our body from our mind and then have to come out somehow. How do they come out? They show up in our body as physical symptoms such as:
Chronic Pain in our Back, Neck, Shoulder, Knee, Foot, Hip, Elbow TMJ Fibromyalgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, RSI, Whiplash etc
Stomach and Bowels:
