I am a 9 year chronic pain sufferer with TMS, new to the program and the wiki, have not had any miraculous instant cures but making the connections, the realizations, and learned that for myself, I needed to do things in stages with the ultimate goal being that I can return to working in an unlimited way again. I have taken all the info from various books, online resources, etc, and crafted my own plan, with the number one goal being that I will be committed, and not let setbacks get me down. My pain is primarily around computer work, but it was starting to affect just about everything, including activities like surfing. I have not been able to surf without substantial pain in two years. I am currently in Panama, two days into a two week surf trip, and so far I have been in the water about 4 hours each day and my pain level is zero. I am using this as a step to building back my confidence, belief in my TMS outcome, belief in myself again. Long road ahead maybe, but very happy today.
