Hello everyone!!! I recently discovered Doctor Sarno and this program and this forum after almost 4 years of pain trigerred by pregnancy and giving birth. First I had sacroiliac pain on my right side and bursitis, then an injury to the left side by a physical therapist resulting in hip dislocation with sacroiliitis, gluteus muscle strain and tendinopathy and the list continues for 4 years ( I don't want to bore you with more details) so I started going into alternative medicine, doctors and even more invasive treatments. Results: pain has been stable in some areas and worsening in others. The strange thing is that after every injury I have had, my body hasn't recovered, it just builds up. So now I have over 10 physical issues, I am like glass so Doctor sarno's advice on doing all physical activities is very challenging right now. Eventhough I am not 100% sure that all my chronic pain is TMS, I am very gratefull to have found this community where people explore the emotional side of their pain. I have been exploring a bit on my own for some time very aware that stress is affecting my pain and one thing that is clear to me is that I rather be entretained looking at my pain than having to look at the mess of the life that I am leading. With my pain I have the feeling that one day I may be cured whereas in my personal life I feel trapped and powerless. So when I think how my life would be without TMS (without pain), the answer is: very scary, lots of anxiety coming up. In spite of repressing I am aware of my anger and emotional suffering. I want to do this work and look at what I need to look at to stop the pain. I feel less lonely knowing that lots of people are going/have gone throught this and much worse. Thank you for being there.
