I can definitely relate to various aspects of Enrique's success story, as I too went through a phase where I thought that the computer was causing my back and shoulder pain. I ended up avoiding sitting and computers for a long time. Thankfully I've realised that this back pain is actually TMS, so now I can use the computer as much as I want without any real issue. I have noticed that when my back pain flares up, it's usually because I'm stressed, anxious or angry. For instance, one day recently I had back pain which I don't normally have. I realised that I was annoyed at my housemates, so once I acknowledged the emotion and dealt with it, the pain went away. I also relate to Enrique's experience of losing so much: Thankfully I don't have a spouse, children or a mortgage, but I have experienced a great deal of loss in terms of my ability to study, work and socialise. I also understand what he means by losing confidence. One of my challenges has been to regain that confidence in myself and my ability to get better. I have overcome the back and shoulder pain mostly, although it does recur at times when I'm stressed, but the main issues I'm dealing with now are neuropathic pain and severe fatigue. I know they are TMS but it's a journey of growth and emotional healing for me. I actually find the mental/emotional healing is the most challenging part… but I'm sure it will be the most rewarding!
