Sunday I almost considered getting on the success stories section and posting about what a great day I had. Not that I felt I was completely healed but I noticed that I was really focused on my life, not the pain. I had a really nice morning with my husband, walked the dogs, went shopping(which often gives me a lot of anxiety), did some projects around the house and I wasn't trying to struggle through anything, I wasn't even thinking about TMS. It was nice, it felt normal. I decided not to post because I didn't want to jinx it by thinking about it too much. Yesterday I started to feel some pain in my right foot, a very familiar plantar faciitis pain, and I decided it was TMS and started journaling and focusing on what was going on with me emotionally. I went walking and ignored the pain. While walking I didn't feel any pain, or at least I didn't think about it. Later that afternoon I suddenly felt a very sharp, aching pain in my right buttocks and down my leg but not sciatica. Hard to explain the difference except I had sciatica for so many years and it is not that kind of pain. I didn't think there was any area new in my body to experience pain and boy was I wrong! I could hardly sleep with the pain last night which is very unusual. Feels like a set back and I am disappointed but I think I know what to do. I am just torn about whether I should get out there and walk tomorrow. Walking is good for me in so many ways and I know that connecting the pain to walking is conditioning but it is generating fear and self doubt. Not doubt about the TMS but doubt about my strength to face it. I guess that is the fear. This is where I get a little confused, when to push through and when to just let it be.
