I finished the SEP program a couple of weeks ago. At the end of that time, my pain had generally decreased, although I got some new pain in new spots, but it was still less painful than I was dealing with before the program. I have been doing some journaling even after stopping the program. After I finished the program I felt really good for about a week, and now I'm back in a lot more pain again. However, I also have a vacation coming up, which is great, except for the fact that I seem to have pain relapses right before vacation. My big problem is my ankle and it feels scary that more walking might be demanded of me while traveling. Also, when away from my usual routine, sleeping disrupted etc. I think I lack confidence that I will be able to manage my needs. So, noticing these patterns, I am telling myself it's TMS, but I am not getting much relief. Now I'm trying to just relax my body as much as I can and not let myself worry about pain/my trip. I'm remembering it usually resolves once I'm actually away so I am thinking of that. I just wish I could get rid of it now (we leave tomorrow). Wondering if anyone else relates to increased pain with an event or trip coming up.
