Rather than having to speak his therapist put him in a relaxing trance and he visualised the moon coming to sit on his knee. This might sound crazy but his therapist was very sensitive and intuited what he needed. He had remarked on the beauty of the moon at the beginning of his session.
What a fabulous image.
When I first started suffering from severe anxiety when I was a student, I experienced a lot of numbness on my face. It would creep and move to different places, and sometimes felt as though it affected most of my head and face.
I think it was probably triggered by my mother having had a severe stroke a few months before. My father died of MS when I was a child, and the two things together made me obsess about getting neurological illnesses.
If it's any consolation, it will go away. There are a few occasions when you do need to be concerned about numbness in your body, but I'm not going to tell you in case it precipitates any more symptoms!!
