A little bit of TMS humor...

    I was just thinking of all the agonizing that we TMS types tend to do over our life situations/pain/etc. It calls to mind the old joke I've heard (coming from a Psych background):

    ..."After years of therapy I have come to the sad conclusion that I am perfectly normal. Perhaps I should seek a second opinion." :)

    I love the humorous quote. How are you doing now?
    I stopped feeling back pain, after a couple of months of TMS healing and
    convincing myself it was all from repressed emotions and not structural.

    Remember the old joke Woody Allen used in Manhattan. "Guy goes to a psychiatrist. He says his brother in law thinks he's a chicken. The doctor says he can help. The guy says "But we need the eggs."

    This is a story you all might find amusing and true. In my early 20's I threw my body around like a no tomorrow adrenaline junkie. Snow skiing, water skiing, surfing, high diving etc, besides having twisted and injured body parts many times and repaired, I woke up one morning with a burning sensation in my hip, it grew stronger and more consistent, especially when I was sitting down. I went to see a doctor who had some new method of treatment for the back (I assumed it was coming from my back) that required 12 visits at 1970's prices it was $125 per visit.

    I was skeptical, and always made it a practice to never make decisions without sleeping on it for 24 hours. After the doctor finished his pitch to sign up for the series of treatments (at a 10% discount), I stood up, took out my wallet and said, " You know what, I would like to pay you for your time and think about it." he said something to the effect of "let me explain a bit further what I can do for you." I sat back down in the chair and immediately my pain was gone.
    I looked at the fat wallet in my hand and understood who the culprit had been. I got up, handed over the $125 and exclaimed to the Dr. "Amazing, I have discovered the cure through the lightening of my wallet!" and left, never to have that pain again.
