Well I finished 1 week of the Ed. Program. This past Tuesday I travelled to Chicago to get a diagnosis from a TMS physician. I wanted to be sure my self diagnosis was on track and I wanted to be able to firmly dismiss worries I had about my spine. Well that went smoothly. Yet, Wed-Sat were somewhat trying. I have times when my back was as sore as ever and others when it felt fairly good. I am beginning to make a transition from thinking all the time about my back and how it feels to thinking about my emotions. I find this difficult however when my back is really sore. I think the journaling is helping. I am eager for week 2.
