Understanding Pain Video

    I just came across this video and thought I would share it with everyone. It doesn't really mention TMS outright but does talk about the role of our mind in creating pain. One interesting thing I found in it was that it differed from acute pain and chronic pain. It actually mentioned reviewing our past and see if we were going through a stressful time when our symptoms started. There are a lot of connections to TMS in it.

    All of the credit indeed goes to @Eric "Herbie" Watson!
    He has been doing a terrific job of finding some wonderful old threads and restarting them. I really appreciate it.

    As time progresses, we will have a system called tagging that will help people discover our best old threads. There is so much terrific content on our forum, but the challenge is finding the best threads that overlap with one's personal interests. Tags will help help us make lists of what we think are the best threads on specific topics, like the one that I made on Nicole Sachs:
    http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/tags/nicole j. sachs lcsw/
    Alternatively, people could simply use tags to make lists of their favorite threads. Herbie has been a tremendous help with tagging, and, while I hope haven't talked to him yet, I think it would be terrific if he would consider making a list of his favorite threads using a tag like "Herbie's favorite threads." He knows this forum better than anyone at this point, so I think that he would be the perfect one to do it. We could make an official tag for the list, which would help people find it.

    From a strategic point of view for the nonprofit, if we are ever to grow to the point where we can hire staff, it will be crucial for us to reach new people. Tags will be crucial for this because Google loves tags because of two concepts called PageRank (colloquially known as "Google Juice") and Anchor Text. We can't help people unless they can find us, and tags should help people find us on Google.

    Forest, my mind staggers at the labor of love you and Herbie (and I know there are others but I think you fellows are the champions here) pour out to make this forum the great resource that it is. I've built websites on a very basic level before for our businesses and it just makes my eyes cross and throw heavy objects at my computer.

    Thank you once again.

    What a brilliant video. A great way to introduce people to the concept of TMS. It makes it sound less new age and more common sense. I've often thought TMS is the nervous breakdown my ego wouldn't let me have.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Mermaid, your comment made me laugh! I read it to my hubby and said told him this is what I was experiencing. (The nervous breakdown thing….) It's so accurate.

    Very nice video. More and more people are embracing the Mind body connection.

    Its interesting to see how our food habits can affect the sensitivity of the nervous system.

    I have had chronic pain for more than 7 1/2 years. Before the pain, I was very active, exercising for at least three hours every day, but when this TMS started, I stopped-not because I was afraid to, but because I found that I hurt MORE when I exercised. After being in this program of self-education for almost 10 weeks now, I still find it painful to exercise, although I've been actively exercising again for 9 months. It's a little easier to exercise since beginning this program, but I find that I haven't progressed as much as I should have. Although I understand that "should" statements are not helpful, I feel somewhat discouraged at not being able to exercise more than about 30 minutes a day. I just keep "plugging along" though, but I'm disappointed at not yet being able to hike, bike or swim, for example, with out being in a lot of pain, even if I do these things for only a few minutes at a time. I'd like to practice Yoga again too, but find that I can't achieve some of the simplest poses, which I found easy before. I need some encouragement. I want to keep up with my friends, but can't even go shopping without getting tired. After all this time, I'd like to be able to do lots more, and wonder if I ever will be able to do these things and have fun ever again!
