Day 1 I am a believer

    I guess I start from a good place in that I do believe the mind has a lot of control over one's health. I have always said that. Or thought that. I see my mom. She has a positive, cheerful, never saying or doing or thinking anything bad about a person personality. Up until recently, she has been the picture of health.

    I have been having on and off back problems for about 2 1/2 years. The past few months have been horrendous. Horrible pain in my leg. Sciatica nerve. The past week I hit rock bottom. So much pain I couldn't believe it. Then a friend reminded me about Dr. Sarno. He had bought his book and it REALLY helped him. I always heard about Dr. Sarno because I am a huge Howard Stern fan and he always talked about him. I never thought I would need him, but here I am.

    I have been reading his books and doing all the research the past couple of days and, I don't want to jump the gun, but I am feeling much better. I am excited to continue this progress and get back to the life I had before.

    If anyone is in Chicago, I would love to meet people who have TMS and go to support groups, etc. Please get in touch with me!!

    When I started reading Sarno's book several months before I new of this site I started feeling a slight relief in pain. Read more then another slight relief in pain. It was noticeable enough that I new something was going on. The more people I talked to about it.... again a slight relief in pain. I thought "this is pretty amazing that reading a book can make you feel better.

    Then the information on the wiki has continued to help me. Glad you are hear. Sandy
