    Skipped a day as had no internet because I had the day off work and decided to start decorating the living room. Spent 8 hours stripping wallpaper, sanding and generally working hard. My back starting complaining on a few occasions but with some focussed thinking it subsided to just a general ache from hard work rather than full blown spasm. Really optimistic now that this is going to change my life. I appreciate there will probably be ups and downs to come, and still lots of hard work mentally getting to the bottom of everything, but this is working and I'm going to put 100% in to make it happen. Thanks Dr Sarno and thanks TMS Wiki.

    Hang in there. Hold it tight you will rediscover your own self. Keep in mind everyday it's going to be a different day with probably new symptoms or old symptoms pouring out. Make sure do not let your self down. One thing I have noticed when I started this program I was pretty much confident that I will heal within a week if I follow but I was wrong I am still struggling it takes full effort lots of patience and lots of courage to dig within your self. Good luck and hope in a boat.

    Hi. Tom. It's really great that you worked so hard and long on decorating and stripping wallpaper and sanding. Those are no-fun jobs. Mind over matter got you through them. You're bound to hurt a little because you were using muscles you probably have not used much before. And doesn't it feel great to have accomplished so much? I'm 85 and gave up on wallpaper years ago. Paint is easier. Sometimes I've even hung wood paneling (glued to the wall) for wainscotting in my kitchen. That gives a country kitchen look.

    This kind of being tired from exercise is very precious to TMS sufferers!! The normal ache of doing a lot!! Wonderful report. Thank you.
