A TMS healing success story Sep 26, 2023

  • My Story

    Hi there! I have been dealing with all kinds of TMS-related symptoms for much of my life. After getting mysteriously seriously ill with 50+ symptoms upon graduating from grad school over 5 years ago, I searched desperately for a diagnosis. I received many, including autoimmune and gut-related issues, and it took me a long time to slowly heal. After finding Dr. Sarno's work, I experienced some relief before a major life change and cross country move. A year later I read Alan Gordon's book, which over the next year lead to an incredible recovery. Physical symptoms and limiting diets that kept me from living my life gave way to climbing mountains, eating and drinking whatever I want, and getting back into dancing and travel! These days, I am still lightyears ahead of where I was, though I have been dealing with more anxiety in the past year. I believe this is the symptom imperative, and after showing my brain I don't have to be afraid of the physical symptoms, I am now facing the underlying emotions that were previously stuck in my body. I don't write on this forum often but I do come here consistently as it is a source of great comfort/support/recognition/reminder. I'm so grateful to this community and the experts and individuals who have given it their time and care.
