If the TMS physiatrist says my spine is not the problem but my neck is not strong, and my neck is painful, is that TMS? But I think I need to cope with it using all the means I have for lowering anxiety. In the Real World, my family, friends and colleagues caution me about going "from zero to 100" in my activities. I have done this before in my life, and it is never a good thing. I am not doing the SEP religiously, because I don't do well in too much structure. Nor do I like feeling that I will not get better if I don't do it correctly. That's sort of 12-step-ish and not my style. I don't want to be a TMS goodist! I am not counting days. I have returned to the gym, and have the most fun in classes with a lot of choreography and fun music, because there is no judgment. I can get out of my head for a while, and enjoy being with people. Returning to group exercise has been the best part of this process. So is the knowledge that I am not doomed to become a miserable person who is always in pain!
