Yesterday was the first day for a long time that I was able to go without anti-inflammatories. Yay! I think the breakthrough came from the journaling I've been doing. I have found it to be very emotional but cathartic. For the first time I also really believe that it is TMS and the doubts I had are beginning to subside. I read in Dr Sarno's book 'Healing back pain' that because it's TMS that I do not have to take anti-inflammatories because there is no inflammation. That made me brave enough to give it a go and stop the Meds. I only missed one day, but will continue to take baby steps and hopefully will be medication free soon.
