I've arrived at a deeper understanding of TMS, though I'm not cured. I'm wondering if anyone else has been in a similar position. I was bed-ridden for three years. I was so weak, I couldn't lift a gallon of milk with both hands. I started getting out of bed in early 2011. Over this past summer, I pushed harder and faster to strengthen myself. Finally, I succumbed to what was diagnosed as a muscle tear. Frankly, I don't know if this was an actual tear or not. I was lifting quite a bit of weight, then felt a sharp pain at the muscle/tendon junction in my calf. This is neither here nor there at this point, though. This "injury" is behind me. Part of me wants to push myself as hard as possible to recover ASAP. I hate sitting on the computer in my parents basement, unemployed. I also don't want to tear something else. What have you done? Taken it show? Pushed hard?
