I have a two part question...do you rationalize successes away? For example, I've had debilitating feet pain for 17 years. It's been bad. Really bad. I've had 3 surgeries and complications. I've been on scooters and in wheelchairs during some of that time. I've spent a month at a pain clinic. Tried many medications and on and on and on. I actually have no real diagnosis b/c no one can find anything concrete wrong with me on tests. Of course there are many, many, many hypothesis' by every different type of doctor. Ironically, when visiting a new doctor, whatever he/she specialized in was always 100% what I supposedly had wrong with me. Anyway, it's be over 2 years now that I've been working on my pain from a TMS stand-point. I've slowly been able to do more and more (my main issue is pain in both feet when standing in place). Never had any huge epiphany moments but slowly have more tolerance for standing. A few weeks ago, we decided to do what I would call the UNTHINKABLE...we booked a trip to Disney World! I never ever thought this type of trip would be possible for me w/o being in a wheelchair. I was nervous leading up to the trip b/c I wasn't sure how it would go. We knew we could rent a wheelchair at the park if we had to, but I really wanted to see if I could do it without one. Well, we did 3 days in a row (14 hrs, 11 hours and 10 hour days!) and I did not use a wheelchair! I did 20,000 steps on day one alone. I stood in lines as long as 30 minutes. I should be elated! I am happy, but I minimize the success. I ended up using a small portable stool in line. So sometimes I'd sit down while in line. And because of this, I seem to not be able to see the trip as a complete success for my feet. I go back and forth now that we are home from the trip. Sometimes I think 'I kicked TMS in the ass' 'I walked all day long for 3 days and stood in lines, there is nothing I can't do!' Other times I think it wasn't that big of a deal what I did b/c I used the stool and sat during the shows. I convince myself it didn't do as much as I thought I did. Do others do this too?
