I have told my husband and he has read some of the stuff on here and in Sarno's book. He is very supportive as he has always thought I would get well one day (he kept oiling my walking boots for 15 years!) and he is convinced that we create our own reality anyway. I told my mum, who is reading Sarno's book, but I feel she may be humouring me for the moment... Her husband came in and closed the door so that he couldn't hear our conversation - so that shows what he thinks! I told my best friend (who is crippled with MS and many awful symptoms) and she was quite supportive and interested, so that was good. I haven't told wider family or other friends yet, as I want to get well and strong before having to deal with their probable disbelief. My father-in-law has just been told to have yet another op on his ankles - he lives in severe pain and they never seem to cure it (sound familiar folks!) so I am going to give him the Ozanich book to read - I don't know whether he will think - "wow, lets give that a try", or whether he will throw the book across the room and swear!!
