A Small, Unexpected, Win

    Good morning, everyone!

    I made a small discovery this morning. I have had tightness almost everywhere on my body. While it's moved around it's consistently been extremely noticeable along my spine. So this morning, I was watching my dogs eat their breakfast and unconsciously rubbed my back, around the tail bone and up. I'm so used to pain or tension that I will massage myself without even thinking.

    The area around my tailbone felt weird. It felt...squishy, loose. "What's going on?", I wondered.

    Then it hit me. This is normal. Normal! No tension, no gripping. I hadn't been working on that spot specifically. Just going about my TMS-healing process. What a great way to begin a new week!

    I had a flare up later in the day but it didn't last long. I'm really encouraged. Thanks for your words.

    Remember to keep thinking psychologically, that is the key. Your positive attitude towards your healing will take you there in a shorter amount of time.

    Sometimes when I get psychological and let my feelings up, I am surprised how angry, depressed or anxious I am. Then I say, No wonder my psyche thought I couldn't handle these feelings! They are rough sometimes!
    Prefer feelings to pain any day.

    This July 4th you can celebrate your independence from muscle tightness. Good for you.

    I'm actually starting to not even think of a physical cause for the pain - A totally new thing for me in the past several years. It's amazing how it works, isn't it?

    Me, too. I can deal with anger/depression/anxiety much better than debilitating pain.
