I am on Day 8 today. SEP asked if I recognized where the pain is coming from. I can see where it comes with tension/anger/rage/worry that builds up in me. I just need to get better at brushing it off and ignoring it. I have been on vacation the last few days, and just got home this afternoon. The first day of vacation my back was aching just a wee bit, grew less and less as vacation progressed. I had one bout of sciatic that kicked in, but my third day of walking on the beach it only reared its ugly head for a few seconds and disolved as I warned it away and walked on. However last night my neck and back were aching to be cracked and this morning with vacation coming to a close and all my worries coming back about getting back to household chores and work have my back aching pretty much since I woke up today. I have forced myself to not crack my neck or back and journaled tonight. I really really want to crack them. It's tougb. Finished Healing Back Pain book yesterday and 1/3 thru The Great Pain Deception. My sciatic pain moves, but my low back seems to be the same spot. I wish it would move and/or feel differently so I can blame TMS on it, but so far it hasn't moved. It almost feels like an internal "crusty" muscle pain. I don't want to track my pain. I just want it to dissipate. Now that I am home and will be up and moving around a lot more and getting on the tennis courts I feel like I will start to progress more by being active. Vacation was basically reading, eating, walking beach, and napping. i have high hopes, this pain that has came up today will go away sooner than later.
