Today's objective was to name something that a doctor said I was no longer able to do due to my back. The thing about it is, my orthopedic really hasn't said anything of the such. He kept preaching to me every time I went in that I have a slight herniation of the L5/S1 disc, but its nothing that I can't live without. Even though he has never heard to TMS (I did inquire), its almost as though he was indirectly telling me that my pain was all in my head! But for over a year, I didn't listen to him. I kept believing that there was something that they weren't seeing. I guess they were right, it was something that they weren't seeing, but neither was I even though the answer is right in front of me. Even as I write this I feel the pain stabbing me in the back, coming up my neck. But I now know its in my head and it will never again deter me from doing what I want to do!!
