Hi All, I've been thinking about exercise and how it relates to this round of TMS pain. Like you, @Chimpmama and @TheWayBackUp @nato1003 my TMS is a series of "injuries" that are absolutely ridiculous. I've lived most of my life enjoying fairly intense exercise almost daily - I used to joke that it kept me sane. I now that maybe the endorphin high and following extreme calm I get from exercise was a way I used to avoid sadness and anxiety. This enabled me to be the most cheerful and easy going girl around. However now that my leg and butt are hurting I'm reconsidering this tactic. The goal is not to be the easiest going person. The goal is to be myself. I don't want to live forcing myself to avoid sadness and anxiety literally running away from my feelings.
