I had a massage this morning. It had been scheduled for three weeks. I hadn't read ahead on the SEP days, but had missed a couple of days. This is a wonderful synchronicity. The massage was wonderful. I kept reminding myself, as the therapist smoothed out my knots, that it was increasing blood and oxygen flow to my TMS pain areas and that the massage alone wouldn't cure anything. Kept trying to think psychologically, not physically. I had an experience the other day that I believe has caused my symptoms to redouble their efforts at distraction. So, this self-care day was very much needed.
