OK, so I have had to accept that I am not one of the lucky ones who read a book and their TMS is gone! I suspect that is because my issues have been ingrained and layered over decades. Now whilst I feel I'm embracing the TMS diagnosis as well as I am able I am getting stuck :- The concept of Outcome Independence is understandable, but putting it into practice is very tricky. My main symptom, although there are many reducing me to a cripple in many ways, is partial dropfoot. Now this means every time I stand up I am struggling to move about, maintaining a calm reaction to this when I am trying to answer the front door or cook for myself, is almost impossible. Also Sarno Oznich and others all mention that activity is essential BUT if I can't lift my foot to walk how do I do this? And by doing this am I not counteracting the idea of Outcome Independence? Last week I fell because my toes did not clear the ground and my balance was poor. I have developed this ridiculous gait with a stiff leg on one side and cant walk more than a 100yds cos I am terrified of falling. So how do I perform Outcome Independence and start to move more too, and how do I stop the worry that I am losing core stability and muscle mass? Which prize do I keep my eye on?
