"Getting better one day at a time" are some of the lyrics from Gossip's song Move in the Right Direction. I listen to this song every day while exercising. My pain is getting better and I feel more confident in my daily life. I feel like I can be more assertive and I am trying to channel my frustrations at work in a more positive way rather than just internalizing them. I did not understand the consequences of internalizing these conflicts but I most certainly do now. I am trying to listen not only to my pain but to my body's emotional response and other physical responses like my heart rate, the pounding in my chest and the tightening in my throat or shoulders. I try to identify what has caused these changes and at least acknowledge the cause if I can. Sometimes just looking for the cause can improve my pain. I thought about taking tonight off from TMS but I know I am a procrastinator so I better march forward "getting better one day at a time".
