Hi All and Dr. Schubiner,
I have been aware of TMS and have known about it in depth for last 3 years. I have no doubt in the concept or the healing power from it. I have been able to reduce my symptoms as well and have been able to normalize the old and the new ones, ONLY by practicing two things: Changing the relationship with fear and being outcome independent.
Today, I dont let TMS take away my peace and freedom!
But I never exercised any structured program like Unlearn your pain, or SEP on wiki, or daily journaling or meditation. I till date dont understand its importance. Why is are we recommended do to all of this. I have been too far in this journey, 3 years now. I have 100% belief and knowledge. But still have lingering pain and new ones every now and then? Is it because I didnt do these exercises to accomplish that missing piece.
Why everyone talks so much about these programs? All I have done is go about living my life. Whats their importance?
Please explain so that I can internalize it.
