    Just want to vent quick. Telltale signs of my TMS : went out for Thanksgiving yesterday and due to not thinking about the pain and seeing family the pain was almost non-existent. Same thing last night and this morning..no pain. Most mornings actually are pain free due to just waking up and being relaxed in my parasympathetic nervous system. Then I said to myself this morning: "I bet when you get up and move around the anxiety/pain/fight or flight will hit." Of course I shouldn't of done this and reiterated it to my brain. But yep it happened. All day today pain and anxiety and manual breathing rather than diaphragmatic breathing. Sorry to vent. But if that isn't a sign I don't know what is. I'm venting because it's devastating to have a pain free day and then go back into the cycle even though I know what I must do. It sucks so much.

    I feel you. I'm constantly in these cycles are as well. They can be hard to break at first, but there are good days. Anxiety and tension free days are rare. Pain days are numbered.
