Hi, everyone. I've had RSI (or TMS, rather) in my hands and arms for 3 years now, and I've had the same depressing struggles like everyone else, which I'm not going to get into, but it's been quite a ride. I recent weeks, I've committed more fully to the TMS theory, and I keep trying to feel the pain, telling myself it's safe, aiming for outcome independence, etc. The goods news is that the fear of the pain worsening, or indeed the fear of the pain in general has maybe halved compared to just a few weeks ago. The not so good news is that the pain has continued to worsen. The symptoms have progressed to where there is pain already when I wake up in the morning, while in the beginning it was only after having used the computer for a while (luckily I sleep like a baby at night regardless). Now, if I stay away from the PC/ipad for a while, symptoms lessen, but since everything points to TMS, I keep using the PC every day in small/moderate doses. Writing this is not very pleasant indeed. Now, my question is: Does anyone have a good strategy for soothing the brain/removing the fear WHILE typing on a computer/using the mouse? When I do my Japanese studies, for example, it's hard to focus on anything but what's on the screen (learning a language is a lot of fun, but quite taxing on the brain!), but every now and then I quickly consider the pain in my arms/hands, before trying to disregard it and keep studying. Should I perhaps be patient, slow down and keep soothing myself even while studying? Or should I do typing/mousing sessions where I don't actually do anything on the computer, but only focus on the typing/mousing itself and telling myself it's safe? I'm just not sure if I should pay more attention to the symptoms and try and relax, or if I should just forge ahead and try and ignore the symptoms, I guess. Any successful strategies you've tried for overcoming arm/hand pain in general is also welcome. Thank you for reading.
