    This is the discussion forum for the Structured Educational Program Forum at the TMS Wiki

    During this free six week program, you'll be encouraged on certain days to create a post on the forum. This isn't a requirement by any means, but it is a great way to receive support and encouragement, and to meet others who are on the same path as you learn more about yourself. Post only what you feel comfortable writing about!

    Each day of the program has a special prefix that corresponds to it. When you start a new thread, find the prefix that corresponds to the day you are on and create your post. You can also comment on or respond to existing threads.

    The Structured Program is a great way to learn about TMS and incorporate a daily activity that will assist you in your healing. The SEP has links to articles and other resources about TMS. Although it's designed as a six-week program, you certainly don't need to work on it every single day. Go at your own pace, but keep in mind that while learning about TMS, it helps to submerge yourself in the information. Knowledge is power and repetition makes it stick.

    Jan Thank you for the words of encouragement. As usual I didn't really read things through but, will check into the 6 week program. I feel like I'm learning a new job. Patience and self talk ie; You can't fool me with your symptoms, I'm more clever than you could ever be, a lot of swearing etc. thanks again deborah

    That's a very apt analogy, Deborah - it IS like learning a new job! Sometimes it feels like another full-time job, too - but the rewards are worth it, believe me!

    Keep us posted, we're all in this together.

    Hi, This has been a journey all right!!! I worked my way up to SEP 12 and have taken a break. Seeing my own therapist a lot. Working on emotions. I can't believe how tricky TMS can be. Moving all over the place. I've been doing my mantra. Coming along slowly. I can't thanks enough for all the incredible people on this site..How much time and energy you put in to this. Thank You

    ok -youve been at it 8 weeks -its took you 35- 40 yrs to get here -we have to talk mind body-so first my magic potion was awareness-acceptance-re-leasing or letting go -for you it might be another set of concepts-its all in the structural program and sarnos books/what studys or concepts or new ideas have you been learning?if you have any questions about how i use these 4 concepts -no problem-let me know

    I'm a wee bit older... 82 and a half. You're right though, that it took me all those years to amass a good supply of reasons for my TMS.
    Every day when I journal I think of more to add. I did have a problem the first 4 weeks in not believing my TMS is totally from
    repressed emotions. A part of me held onto the belief that my back had some structural problems from aging. I've been talking very
    firmly to my subconscious about that and it seems to be helping. The back pain lessens. But I've always been impatient. Like the old song,
    I want what I want when I want it!" So was your magic potion "just" believing 100 percent that your repressed emotions caused
    your TMS pain?

    I've been doing the Sarno HEALING BACK PAIN daily reminders (p. 82) and also have read and re-read his THE MINDBODY PRESCRIPTION,
    and have been following the 6-week program by Dr. Scott Brady in PAIN FREE FOR LIFE. I'm also reading Steve Ozanich's THE GREAT PAIN PERCEPTION. My subconscious seems hard to convince, but I'll keep at it. My philosophy always has been NEVER GIVE UP.

    thats it walt-stay the course-the cure is in your willingness to learn-perceive and accept -so much more-i believe you have the magic potion in that ton of tms info and healing concepts like when steveo focuses on another body part while in pain just to know he could eventually control the pain-do everything you learn-do it all the time all day if you can-is there any one thing you cant grasp yet

    I think I grasp it all and need to just keep telling my subconscious I believe the pain is 100 percent from my repressed emotions.
    My year-older sister is in a wheel chair (she probably has TMS) and neighbors and friends in their 70s and 80s are
    walking with canes or walkers or are in wheel chairs. I've begun to believe their aches and pains are not from aging but from TMS.

    I don't walk with a cane or use a walker or wheel chair, and take my darling dog Annie for a walk every morning, and drive to the mall to do my own grocery shopping, do my own cooking and house-cleaning with minimum back pain. So I do believe I'm getting there.

    Hi, Jilly. Sarno People are some of the most caring people I've ever met. You and Eric are very welcome new members of the club.
    I became one about two months ago and have learned so much from the members, some of whom are doctors and authors of TMS books, and Forest and others who do so much for us all.

    I think some of the best things I get from the forums are the exchange of "progress reports" which keep inspiring us.
