Hi all I hit what I think was the pain bottom on my TMS journey 5 weeks ago. After slipping back towards the traditional medical route for the first four weeks out of anxiety and frustration, I reread part of Dr Schubiner's book last week and it rekindled my conviction that I am dealing w TMS/MBS. I tossed the pain and muscle relaxers in the trash. I got rid of my work/living set up around the bed and for the past three days have been easing back into something close to a normal day. Shoveled and pushed snow for an hour today - it was awesome to be outside being physical again! My question is about giving into the pain a bit when you're completely worn down. I am writing this lying down because I was sitting at my desk and the pain wouldn't let up. I tried to acknowledge and move on. I tried yelling at my mind. I cried in frustration. I used Dr Schubiner's acupressure/affirmation technique. Eventually I just had to lie down, I was exhausted. Am I completely undermining my efforts when I give myself some time in a position that provides relief? Thanks on advance for any thoughts.
