    Well, it has been a little over a week since I began the structured program. I have been learning about TMS for over a year and after going back and forth between various treatments such as Curable and Journalspeak, I decided to just focus on one, the Structured program on this website. I have to say, my pain in my hip/knee and groin is better and different. Each day this past week, I noticed that it changed. Some days, it hurt a little worse at various times during the day. It's hard not to monitor it so much since it only hurts when I walk. So as soon as I get up off the couch or out of the car, I notice it and think about it. But today, I took an hour long walk with my family. I rested on a bench about half way through but it felt better than it has all week. I wasn't limping. Then got in the car for the five minute drive home and when I got out of the car, the usual groin pain and had to limp into the house but I told myself that I just had a great walk and it was fun and felt pretty good so YAY for that. It felt better once I was walking around the house, as it usually does. I'm feeling very hopeful. I know it is TMS. No more doubts.
