Hi...been reading some things by Monte Hueftle on the running pain site. I think I recall he or the site was referenced in one of the SEP days. What I found encouraging/enlightening is that he says (my take on it) that while deeply repressed emotions are the root of the pain trying to discover and solve those deeply repressed issues roots us even further in them...that focus makes us feel like we have to change our very being which would most likely take us as long to do as it took to get here... Instead he says focus on the now and deal with those feelings and how they are being used to communicate to us...apply the principles of mindfulness etc. Right now and don't take on the overwhelming task of sorting things out I am analysis of your overall personhood. S@?#t happened, (to us all) move on. Live for the moment essentially. That's my take and it echoes Ozanich in that respect. I'm seeing (feeling) steady improvement. Using TMS/MBS does force you to own up to what's making you unhappy/angry.
