I'm doing great so far. I am open minded and totally on board with TMS. It is an extremely interesting and complex topic, but I like that. I use methods such as practicing my breathing to reduce my anxiety/pain. The pain will often come at the same times every day, which makes me believe it HAS to be TMS. The whole thing makes sense regarding the autonomic nervous system, blood restriction, oxygen deprivation, spasms, pain, etc. Of course everyone has their doubts here and there... but I think I'm doing much better and will be close to pain free when I resume my normal life and find happiness that will distract me from my thoughts. I am currently home a lot and in my own head and that isn't good... I find that when I'm out and in a good mood the pain is almost non existent. Interesting stuff. Question to ponder day 10- who do you hide your emotions from? I have told my mom/ and one of my brothers about TMS and they're on board and smart in regard to it. I am only 26 so I find myself reluctant to tell friends about it... I have many friends but something like this would seem crazy to them. Don't get me wrong, I think some would totally accept it and are open minded, but I don't want to bother or bore them... lol. It is my own issue.
