My mind has been in a good place the last week or so, pain levels are down but I think it is my mind set towards the pain that has made the difference. I have been reading Claire Weekes book (A great read by the way, highly recommended!) and have kept myself occupied all week. I have actually started my own business with my Father, which is exciting but obviously stressful as I am currently building a home and my cash flow is at its limits. For the first time in almost 2 months I have been noticing POSITIVE emotions through the dark clouds of anxiety and I have really been trying to run with them. Headaches still come and go briefly along with tmj and gastro issues (Triggered by stressful situations), Anxiety has calmed down considerably, urinary symptoms easier to deal with the last few days but this damn dragging feeling in my groin and testicle has been really nagging me. I still had that feeling something was just not right. So I went back to the doctor and he sent me for another ultrasound...They found a right sided Indirect Inguinal Hernia and have referred me to a surgeon. By no mean do I think this is the sole cause of my pelvic symptoms, far from it. I know TMS has completely blown the pain out of proportion. I am going to delay surgery for a while as I have alot on my plate at the moment and going into surgery would be another major stress added. Not to mention I want to make sure I am in the best head space I can be pre-surgery to prevent any post-op TMS problems. Even with this added stress and the knowledge that there will be ups n downs, I feel like I am on the right path and I am starting to see glimpses of light at the end of this long, dark tunnel.
