Real relief only when I'm alone?
Reading your post reminded me of a blogpost I wrote on why we hurt where we hurt.

like you, most of my tension came from my relationship with my wife. After my recovery from TMS, I knew I had to learn new ways of communication in order to avoid becoming disabled again. It was much easier to learn and apply these techniques than I thought.

They made me feel empowered and optimistic about our future together. That was more than 20 years ago and we are still happily married.

I wrote about what I learned in chapter seven of Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain. I also help my client with such issues because relationship issues are a common sources of TMS.

So take heart. There is hope.
