Just wanted to share my latest successes with you all to encourage anyone who may need it. My husband's parents lived overseas so we have tried to visit them at least once a year. Usually I would pay for a business class seat so that I would have a flat bed to lie on, as my back pain was intolerable to sit that long (3 hrs). It would be a lonely demoralising trip over, and once there I would have to take the rest of the day and sometimes even the next day to recover which mainly involved lying down. We would then be restricted to very short visits to his parents (no longer than 1 hr, and I would end up lying on the floor once the pain got too bad) and takeaways or room service wherever we were staying and not much else. Then a carefully timed trip back home so I wasn't waiting too long at the airport till I could get on a flatbed on the plane again. These were our family holidays each year. Anything more than this was out. Well I just got back from our trip after a week away. This time I travelled with my family on economy.....3 hrs! First time in 15 years! We did everything we wanted to including a trip to Hobbiton (a 2 hr car ride away plus a 2 hour tour), 8-9 hour days out of the house, restaurants and family visits. I travelled back economy 3hrs 30m (theres a headwind on the way back). I had peaks of pain especially on the way back but I just stayed calm, confident in my TMS tools and allowing my mind and body to 'let go' of all the tension/trauma of the last 15 years and give myself the love I hadn't before. This really does feel like a miracle to me. My family are ecstatic for me. Truly amazing.
