Hi all! I'm a few weeks into my discovery of TMS and am doing quite well. My back pain is very low at this point and mostly seems to occur on a particularly stressful/emotional day or moment for me...I ignore it and it goes away. I'm working through the SEP, reading TMS books and journaling often. The roadblock i've hit is mostly with certain family/close friends and explaining TMS, for those i've chosen to talk to about it. A few people are very receptive/supportive but i've encountered lots of skepticism. This is particularly challenging for me since i'm a PT and get lots of questions from friends/family about body related issues. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to give the "traditional" explanation for tendinitis, back pain etc. How did you guys deal with skeptical friends and family? Would love to hear stories and advice. Thanks!
