I am under more than usual stress right now involving the complete remodeling of a long-decommissioned bathroom in my 90+ year old house. This includes not only the obvious expense but the decisions, comparison shopping, someone in the house for hours every day, the noise, and the unexpected surprises that always occur with an old house. But I find myself without a generally elevated level of pain. Just a few little twinges here and there which I know for a fact are TMS. So I am feeling better today, under this extreme stress, than I did on my best days during the last year. Encouragement.
