Hello all, I am new to this forum. I just started the "Unlearn Your Pain" program. I have chronic daily facial pain, head/skull pain, and ear pain. My pain level changes throughout the day, but it is always there. I am wondering if people can give me advice. I am having trouble with keeping the negative thoughts away, that my pain will never go away. That I will be one of the people dealing with TMS that takes forever to get better, or never will. I can't help but have those thoughts when I am doing my TMS work. I think because I have had SO MANY things fail already that I've tried. I have been reading Dr. Sarno's book for the last few weeks. And I am on DAY 4 of Unlearn your pain. I think I am having very high expectations that I should start feeling a difference. When I try to use the self-talk methods when my pain flares up, I am hoping to see it go down some and it doesn't. This does not help my faith. Can you tell me how you dealt with these issues? Any success stories? Thank you very much!
