Simultaneously reading Healing Back Pain and following the SEP. The article has been really, really eye-opening. I spent an hour doing all the exercises recommended in Day 2. I feel like I can almost pinpoint what those feelings are that I am repressing. But when I write down what I am angry or sad about, I can only write down things that are "superficial". I'm worried that I am not able to dig that deep, that my unconscious will hide my feelings from me forever. Intellectually, I know that I can overcome this. I hope it will. I have some light pain in the middle of my back, which I know is not caused by physical injury, since I do Crossfit (intense workouts) and I feel nothing at that time. Also have very tense shoulders and neck. I fantasized a lot about going to the chiropractor or getting a massage, while I know now that that only would have helped very temporarily. Intellectually I accept the TMS diagnosis, but I'm not sure if I do so "in my gut". I need to reinforce this belief. So far day 2, we will see how this goes.
