I'm making some progress with my back pain. My flare ups are getting shorter I think and they are spreading out a little more, but I still get them every couple weeks atleast. Is this normal for TMS recovery? I'm trying to fight the fear part of it and not let myself go to that place and it's getting a little easier but today the pain is a little overwhelming again. I'm trying to give it the silent treatment. Yesterday afternoon, I got frustrated with an ongoing family issue and it came on strong last night. I need some encouragement that I'm on the right track and there is light at the end of the tunnel. I will be pain-free sometime!
