TMS Discussion Threads
The following is a list of links to some of the better discussions from our old forum. However, we encourage you tovisit our new foruminstead.

  • Trouble accepting TMS after relapse: There are all kinds of stress, involving external demands or unpleasant events, but they are always mediated, filtered by our own personality and the traits we have built in to deal with certain emotions, often suppressing them, or denying them or minimizing their intensity.

  • The importance of EXPLORING OUR CHILDHOOD: Dr. Sarno tells his patients that our “overflowing beaker” of rage is made up of three components: 1/3 childhood, 1/3 current stressors, and 1/3 our personality. Most of us think of our childhood as happy.

  • TMS or physical syndrome?: People may not feel that their childhood warrants them being angry, guilty, frustrated about something. But I don't think this means we can't still have strong emotions of angry about our past. I think that might be one aspect of what Sarno means by the unconscious rage.

  • What will it take for TMS doctors to agree on one name?: Dr. Sarno makes a point in The Divided Mind that many patients would not have sought psychotherapy were they not seeking physical symptom relief. There is a danger in labeling psychosomatic symptoms with current DSM-IV diagnoses.

  • TMS and motherhood: Dr. Sarno wrote somewhere that 1/3 of our tension comes from the past, 1/3 of it comes from the present, and 1/3 of it comes from the future. In terms of the present, mothers are under a huge amount of stress to get a million things done and, with the responsibility of parenting, sometime to be "perfect."
