  • My Story

    I found out about Dr. Sarno's work a number of years ago while trying to get help for my mom with her severe back pain. I read the Mindbody Prescription, then gave it to her. She was interested & thought there was "something to it", then she read The Divided Mind. Unfortunately, it hasn't helped her much but I'm not surprised because she has some really deep "stuff" from childhood that she isn't facing up to. She is 82 yrs old now, so I have to let her deal with life her own way. As for myself, I have chronic hip pain and sciatica that started bothering me about three years ago, so of course I thought TMS... and got the Sarno book back out and started journaling. That led me to reading Steve Ozanich's book (which I absolutely LOVE) and also those by Fred Amir and Marc Sopher. I'm now RE-reading Ozanich's Great Pain Deception, in fact. I think knowledge of TMS has helped. I never accept pain as a purely physical "condition". I'm always aware that it has deeper meaning. This is definitely an ongoing process as although I am better, I'm not pain free. I have a 19-yr-old daughter who is severely disabled, and I am her main caregiver so that is an obvious source of stress for me and certainly contributes. I'm also an artist and that provides me with a way to channel my emotions and allow unconscious stuff to come to the surface. determined to keep learning, keep exploring my "inner world" and making progress.
