I started the recovery programme and got through to day 10 but found I could not find the time to do all the writing. I have sciatica and in the last 6 months have got more tingling in both feet and legs. This started after a holiday with my then partner and left her after a wonderful time feeling really sad and abandoned. Since then have another partner who is great and very supportive but this gives me some stress too - what a strange thing our minds are! In between though I got numbness in my hands and practiced my TMS to tell me it was mind body and used the affirmation techniques with relaxation. With the support of friends I got over this in 3 - 4 months. Now just have to work harder on the tingling legs. I am getting a second MRI to make sure it is nothing caused by a serious condition. I just need to keep being positive. My friend got out of a wheel chair after getting over the psychological problems of her rheumatoid arthritis so she, and the rest of this site give me great hope and strength. Sometimes I think this is all a bit like a 12 step programme sharing strength, hope and experience.
