    When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why?

    The last time I did any form of exercise was last week. I did an intense cardio and strength workout. I felt great doing it but developed pain in my knee somewhere halfway and haven't tried to do it again since.

    The last time I did what I love; dancing was my birthday, June 6th. It made me feel amazing. Empowered, excited, happy. I haven't danced since then for fear of hurting myself. That time my knee really hurt after dancing, but at that point I had been living with the most stressful human being ever and had endured 2 months of being ignored and emotionally starved.

    As for running, the last time I did that was October of 2018. My knees really hurt after running, and everytime I tried to run I would get a sharp pain on the inside of my knee. So I stopped running. I would also get pain in the arch of my foot. So even walking long distances or running stopped being possible for me.

    Now that I wrote it all down, it has been a lot of things I gave up. But four years ago I used to have back pain and didn't do so much, and i recovered, so I have faith that I'll recover. I haven't yet accepted the TMS diagnosis, which is probably why I haven't exponentially gotten better, but today feels better than yesterday, so I will keep going.
