I just joined this forum, and am so pleased that there is this community of people who understand TMS and can support one another! I have been pushing myself into the world for a number of weeks now. I am just starting to really "get" the TMS philosophy and try to live it. Today, I walked a lot more than usual, which felt okay. But then later when I did exercises that I got via PT (core and stretching), I experienced more pain (low back, buttock and pelvic). Do I continue to do the exercises (because I like them!), despite the pain - or listen to the pain and avoid them? When the pain is really high (not there at the moment), I feel like it's hard to walk and stand for any length of time. So my fear is that the exercises will get me "back there", and I need to be out in the world for work and just to be alive!!! Thoughts? Thanks!
