Hello friends! I’m no stranger to TMS or the lovely Dr. Sarno. I've recovered from debilitating back pain, foot pain, and various other maladies dating back to the 1980s. I retired early from my job (middle school teacher and librarian) last June. Kids were becoming more violent, admin was doing nothing... My husband was the impetus for the change, stating that the job was consuming me. I slowly began to realize that he was right. In recent years, my TMS has jumped on the injury bandwagon. Sprained wrist? Takes months to heal. In April of 2018 I had a nasty fall at work and really tore up my knee. That took over a year to recover from, and it only happened when I realized that TMS had taken hold. Most recently, my insomnia has increased by an order of magnitude. My husband suggested that I talk to my subC, which is "killing you." Light bulb! After realizing that it was TMS, I slept for the first time in weeks. But I'm still struggling. I'm scolding my subC etc, but am profoundly sad that I have a subC that seems bent on taking me out!! I’m trying to deal with the feelings of fear. I also need some support. Thank you, friends.
