Hello all. I don't know what's going on lately and to be honest I haven't been doing TMS practice all day and certainly not everday so this could be the problem. Anyway I have much more wicked pain and longer lasting flare ups..maybe 1 day a week I am lucky to have tolerable pain...and I can't attribute it to the TMS program becausw I just started and haven done much. When I am at this point, even talking and chewing hurts to the point I eat apple sauce, cereal and jello. I can't even lay my head on the pillow and sleep much. How do you cope with this degree of pain when reading or using the computer hurts? Is self talk positive and sufficient enough? Journaling too? I appreciate all feedback. Thanks!
