My TMS doctor and I have discussed my childhood in great length and have come to the conclusion that it may or may not play into my pain. But, after working on my pain with TMS for over 2 years, I ended up facing my biggest buried emotions head on. I met with my father and read him a letter describing all the fear, anger and resentment I had do to things he had done in my childhood. I had hoped that this would be the last piece of the puzzle. I didn't meet with him for this reason, but I had hoped it would be the icing on the cake. Anyway, I just posted another post about a huge recent success (walking and standing at Disney world for 3 days with minimal pain). Between that success and facing my buried emotions, I was hoping my pain would finally be completely gone. I tell myself there is no reason to feel this pain anymore b/c I've felt the emotions now and I've expressed them to the source. But I see no improvement and in fact, the pain is even somewhat more on some days. I know I shouldn't try to gauge it or put a timeline on healing, but... Is it possible that you can always stay at 80% healed?
