Has it ever! First the old sites flared, some so dramatically I almost quit the program. But I hung in there. Now my brain is trying a few new spots. Theses are a lot tougher, because with the old spots I can say, "Been there, done that." The new ones trigger that last bit of fear: the voice in my head that says "What if everything else is TMS but this one is physical? Even life-threatening? maybe I should go to the doc just to rule out_____." The overall picture, though, is that I'm moving with more ease and more confidence than I have in years, and maybe that's what my brain is worried about: if I leave behind my symptoms, how will it protect me?
