I have been blessed with pelvic pain for a little more than 5 years. I attended the Wise Anderson Clinic in Santa Rosa, California in September of 2011 and embarked on a treatment protocol. It helped, but I never got to a comfortable place, it was very time consuming, and it consumed my life. At that clinic, I met my now dear friend Paula, who sent me the MindBody Prescription in 2012. I did not want to be confused with another theory as I believed I had discovered a way to heal. Fast forward to one month ago, when I heard a physician from New Zealand talk about Dr. Sarno and his method. I instantly realized that Paula was right all along and that I should have listened to her. I ordered A Divided Mind and started doing some of the mental work. I stopped doing trigger point therapy. I stopped being afraid of the discomfort. My sitting pain is nearly gone. For the first time in over 5 years, I rode a bike last weekend. I still have pain that occurs after urination, and it is embarrassing to discuss but also very distracting. I am starting to apply the principles to that pain and it is starting to ease. I am just amazed by how the mind works and I am a true believer at this point.
