After a pretty good Saturday--I did a 2:10 hour roundtrip drive to see some friends I hadn't seen in awhile, with no increase in pain--I spent a lot of Sunday reading threads in the TMS help archive, and I noticed a common theme of "you have to accept the pain--once you do that, it will diminish." So today I spent a lot of time trying to "accept" my pain, but I found myself focusing more than usual on my pain! I am feeling very frustrated and near tears today because I just don't understand what it means to "accept" my pain or how I can accomplish it. And if I can't do it then how can I ever fully heal? Sometimes I really feel like this is two steps forward, one step back for me.
