Hi everyone, I'm lazydaisy. I started 'Day 1' today, and before reading to the end of the instructions, I posted a question in a different subforum introducing myself and explaining my issues. Little did I know that was kind of today's task. So here are the basics: I found this website yesterday. Ironically, I was searching for new trigger point treatments for my chronic TMJ. I saw a link to something called TMS and thought it might be about TMJ but with a difference initials. So I clicked over, I read a bit, I watched a few videos. I read about the personality traits common amongst TMS sufferers. Yeah, I tick every one. (by the way, if you don't know TMJ is temporo-mandibular joint disorder - basically, clicking, cracking, grinding noises and pain in the jaw. Oh, and the occasional 'getting stuck' where I cannot open/close my mouth. It seriously hurts.). I downloaded the book, within about 10 minutes. I started reading the treatment guides, and today am doing ‘Day One’. For the first time in FIFTEEN YEARS OF CONSTANT PAIN* I finally think I might have found the answer. I almost think believing it is not a structural problem (which I totally do) may be enough on it’s own. But, you know, I’m a perfectionist, if it says I have to read the book, I have to read the book, but I also have to do it right (did I mention I’m a perfectionist?). I've just started reading The Mindbody Prescription and I can only describe my feelings thus: - excitement! I may have found the answer! - anger! Because I have wasted so much time and money on chiropractors, physios, etc etc etc - you guys know the drill. Thank goodness I didn't opt for the complete Jaw Replacement surgery I was offered!!
