It's been hard facing recovery because I'm finally experiencing and facing the anxieties and emotions that I have run away from for so long. I do feel significantly more empowered each day and had been stepping up my workouts. Back pain is not hindering me as much and I am allowing myself to fill up my schedule with getting time with friends this week. Big shift...I have found myself to have pulled back over the past years because I couldn't handle the stress and pain, but I'm more confident than ever on conquering this pain. I no longer want to hold onto a victim mentality and will stand up and fight this. I am more confident about overcoming my back and neck pain than my finger tendinitis. I still have my finger buddy taped as it stung again last night. I have a concern that a previous MRI showed inflammation and know that TMS does not involve inflammation. Any thoughts advice on the finger/hand tendinitis?
