My "Rocky" Moment

    Today, I decided to dress in heavy sweats with gloves and a hat and tackle the sledding hill near my house. There is a lot of snow on the ground which made it even more challenging. I ran up that bad boy hard 5 times and was breathing as if I had smoked for ten years (I am not a smoker). The hill can be tiring just walking up. I then ran home. No pain to the back while doing this. Funny, because I could then sit for too long and feel the pain. So funny how this TMS works. I can also touch my palms to the ground with no problems. I am so happy to know nothing structural is wrong, just need to get to the bottom of the junk!

    Hey, Joseph. Your day sledding on the snowy hill is a wonderful success story.
    Dr. Sarno and Steve Ozanich say the pain from sitting too long is just more TMS.
    You may have conditioned yourself to believe sitting for long periods causes you the pain,
    but it probably doesn't. It's just another repressed emotion.

    Maybe try telling your unconscious mind the pain has nothing to do with sitting too long.
    Of course, it's also always good to get up and take short breaks. Stretch or walk.

    "The bottom of the junk" is to be found in journaling to learn more repressed emotions.
    Most of us have more of them than we realize.

    Walt: Yes, I have been journaling lately. It doesn't come easy for me and also noticed the pain increased first couple times, which I guess is a good sign.
