Hi, I’m new here. Let me introduce myself - I’m lazydaisy. I found this website yesterday. Ironically, I was searching for new trigger point treatments for my chronic TMJ. I saw a link to something called TMS and thought it might be about TMJ but with a difference initials. So I clicked over, I read a bit, I watched a few videos. I read about the personality traits common amongst TMS sufferers. Yeah, I tick every one. I downloaded the book, within about 10 minutes. I started reading the treatment guides, and today am doing ‘Day One’. But I have a question - should I read the book before beginning the programme? Do both at the same time? Do the programme and then read the book? For the first time in FIFTEEN YEARS OF CONSTANT PAIN* I finally think I might have found the answer. I almost think believing it is not a structural problem (which I totally do) may be enough on it’s own. But, you know, I’m a perfectionist, if it says I have to read the book, I have to read the book, but I also have to do it right (did I mention I’m a perfectionist?). So, if someone could help me out with the order in which to proceed (book, then treatment; treatment then book; both concurrently; or shut up, it makes no difference), I’d be very grateful. * Actually, I did experience two pain free hours when admitted to hospital with gallstones and given morphine. I’d like to say my wedding was the best day of my life. I’m afraid it actually comes second to those glorious few hours when I remembered what is was like to not be in pain.
