    Its felt like 2 steps forward 1 step back. I do still feel symptoms but i am doing all physical activity again. Going to be going for third swim today.

    I wanted to stretch my hamstrings so i have been doing that but it might be to much a specific stretch for my issue and perhaps its making the issue stick around.

    I have a boat load of issues from the past to go over i have found. Seems i might have some abandonment issues probably coming from parents divorce when i was a child.

    Hi. It's great that you are swimming and resumed physical activity. Be careful of stretching hamstrings. Maybe look at some Youtube videos to be sure you're doing it right.

    I had no idea I was repressing abandonment emotions from my parents' divorce when I was 7, but I believe that in SEProgram journaling it was one of the main reasons for my TMS back pain.

    I did some journaling to remind myself that my parents divorced for financial reasons (the Great 1930s Depression, you know). It helped me to forgive them.
