I think I'm thinking about TMS too much... 39yo female, have had chronic pain for almost 2 years now and found out about TMS about 6 weeks ago. Everything resounded with me. Have made some progress, pain quite minor now & moving round heaps. Can't wait for it to go away completely, but maybe I'm too fixated on being pain free? Have been reading 'Healing Back Pain', on the Wiki a bit, and doing the structured educational programme. I am mainly a stay home mum of 4 kids so my work is quite menial, leaving me with a lot of brain space. I find I'm analyzing everything, like every little blip of pain I'm trying to think psychological, what's going on with me emotionally right now? and now, and now? TMS is the first thing I think about in the morning and last thing I think about at night. I work one day a week and have noticed that the days I'm at work I don't notice the pain at all, because I'm distracted. I think I need to distract myself more and not be so focused on my TMS? Does this make any sense?
