Hi all, I went through a very difficult journey with TMS a couple years ago. I came away from it pain free, learning an incredible amount about myself in the process and becoming much stronger as a person. This forum and a number of books were very helpful- seeing a therapist was huge for me as well. Now the pain has returned and has gotten to the point where I feel I need to enter the structured program again. This time around has been much less scary since I've been through it before. It has, however, still been very frustrating, as pain tends to be. I've been hesitant to do the hard work that comes with confronting TMS but I know what great benefits it can have, even beyond pain relief, so I am excited about getting started. I'm also planning to comment elsewhere, as I hope I can use my success in the first go-around as inspiration or comfort for others.
