I was going to put this in my recent "feeling low" post but I wanted to make sure people still doubting TMS and the process, even .01%, saw this. I finally made the leap I've been waiting for - truly, unequivocally believing in this process and in TMS. I still have pain, and I wish I did not, but I know I crossed over a hurdle. I didn't even fully realize the hurdle I passed, after a long time of working with the techniques and principles and working with a TMS therapist something happened... It's hard to explain. Long story short I started using a heating pad again and a lot, having stopped for a good while. When I started again the pain became CONSTANT (when I wasn't enjoying the heat) . I had enough sense and belief to stop using the heating pad . Within the next day or so I had 6 hours at work where I felt no or minimal pain. And I've had that experience again. My body felt relaxed and just felt right. And thinking about the pain is less, many things hurt less, and even when they do hurt as lot, I just feel a certain distance from it. But I also FINALLY understand what "changing the relationship to the pain" means and other things I've been struggling. I know it's still a long journey ahead, but this shift I knew I think needed to happen, happened. THANK YOU, every single person on this forum.
