Day 1 of my TMS journey. I have suffered from chronic pelvic pain for over 5 years now and although I was introduced to Dr. Sarno's books a few years back, it is only recently that I saw a post on FB mentioning how a fellow sufferer of pudendal neuralgia (one of my diagnoses) had success with eradicating her pain. After speaking with her I started my own inquiry through the TMS wiki website. I saw a TMS doctor this past week who confirmed my thoughts. I am ready to do this. I know it will be difficult but I know it is the key to unlocking this horrific daily pain that continues to disrupt my living. I recognize that I need support and am grateful to found this program and this forum. The last few days the pain seems to have gotten worse - and my journaling and lack of sleep seems to be so confusing. I would so appreciate any advise on how to get unraveled. I have been using Lyrica for the pain and have desperately wanted to stop. And so I did 3 days ago. I know this might be adding to my anxiety but I know I don't need it. This is a big step for me. I am also challenged by again, living by myself as my roommate is leaving. My biggest fear is loneliness which predominates my day. Travel is difficult because sitting is so painful. I'm wondering how others deal with the realness of the physical pain. Thanks for reading. One day at a time . . .
