What would a life without TMS mean to you? I have had TMS symptoms for a long time. I have a history of going to the doctor and having them find nothing wrong. Pain was really ramped up this year though and discovered Dr. Sarno and TMS. Simply put, TMS to me will mean a life with no pain. Or at least, without chronic pain. I'll be a much better person for having had it though. This could be longer, but this is the only thing I can think of. I just want to be over this pain I've had for the past 6 months. Some people have pain for years. I don't want to have my life ruined, to lose my girlfriend, my job, and any hope I had of a future.
