As a part of Day 10 I was asked to make a brief post about how you are doing with treatment. I haven't posted since Day 1 but thought today would be a good day to do so. I have definitely had my ups and downs since starting the SEP, as I have had since discovering TMS in November. I was fortunate to have the last few weeks off from work but unfortunately have not gotten much better. I know I have TMS but there must be some small part of me that still thinks I don't, as I can't seem to get steady progress. There have been brief moments over the last few weeks where it was almost like the sky parted and maybe for like 1o-15 minutes I didn't notice any pain. Nothing special going on at that time just something I noticed. I try not to concentrate on the pain when it increases as I know it feeds the beast. I also have been trying to look internally when the pain comes to see what emotion may be occurring but am not having much luck there. I really do think stress for me is a major component and now is wrapped up in conditioning. Every time something becomes frustrating: work, housework, computer related, etc., the pain goes up. I have seen on the TMS WIKI some have had success with hypnosis. My therapist thought this may be good for me (She thinks I would be receptive to the power of suggestion) but has not been able to provide me anyone to date as of yet that does it. Thank you all.
