I’m interested in how others deal with feeling overstimulated and how that might play into pain and perception of pain. I’m aware that TMS theories point to getting re-involved in normal activity as far as possible... however I find that this sometimes works for me and sometimes doesn’t. Often at the moment I end up feeling really overstimulated and in a lot more pain when I try to just engage as normal and get more depressed about my lack of progress. I think I must be pretty sensitive to my surroundings and environment, although I can think to times in the past when I was able to throw myself into so many things without care and of course it would be nice to get back there at some point... I do know that sometimes at this point it feels like I’m doing more harm than good by pushing my limits too far and end up feeling really crappy as a result. How can we work out how to push ourselves within certain limits?
