I haven't exercised in 2 months. The last movement i did was walk my dog, do some shoveling and my performance at work which is physical. I did kind of complain about walking the dog in the cold- so I would just let him out quickly in the yard. Was despising my job for being too much work I didn't have a second to myself. Now I only dream about doing those things again. That's when the detour happened that strayed me away from thinking that I have TMS. The dreaming of what I cannot do. The grief and despair and guilt for damming my life when I was healthy. This way of thinking drove me mad for almost two days. Driving me to post my horrific mri picture on this site, contacting a tms doctor who calls my symptoms a red flag case " tms should not cause loss of motor function". I then reached out and made an appt for acupuncture and then ultimately a doctor for surgery. This was my thought process after feeling so strong. I don't like this feeling sorry for myself. When I believed I had tms prior to my mental break down I felt good. Took a walk outside without crutches. I had to go back and re read success stories such as baseball fan from week 1. I believe I have TMS because of my personality and how I handle things and the negative emotions that are buried. I'm determined to believe I have tms and not worry that my disc is impinging a nerve. I enjoyed feeling the power from within not weak and powerless. To the tms gurus. Have any of you over comers ever faced your mind detouring you into believing for even a second that you do not have tms but something more serious? Journal exercise tms list Current stressors 1. Physical tension 2. Having to move in two months because my partner needs space. Going home to share a room with my mother 3. Letting my father berate my intelligence. 4.
