Hi all, I'm working my way through the books and trying to take all the advice on board - it all makes perfect sense, including stopping using all the props I've been using such as heat, pillows, walking stick, rolling walker etc and I completely understand the need to do this. The problem is that I can't walk more than about 100m unaided without being in excruciating pain - that's fine, I'm willing to face that one and scream at my brain to switch the pain off, command it to do so. Alas my brain is ignoring me. Once I get where I'm going (perhaps to the shops) if I find myself having to stand still in a queue for example, I'm almost passing out with pain and sometimes have to sit down on the floor. Then I can't get home again because of the pain. I take the theory on board and understand it, but in practical terms it's not possible at the moment. How do others get through this one please? I'm really keen to find out as I realise it's stopping me moving forward with getting out of TMS.
