Hello all. A friend recommended Dr. Sarno's writings to me for mitigating hand/wrist/arm pain that I've had from keyboard usage for about seven years now. I picked up an e-book version of The Divided Mind, and I'm about halfway through it. I would describe myself as requiring concrete evidence and sound arguments in order for me to adopt any beliefs, generally. Classifying myself as a TMS sufferer has posed some difficulties because of the way the theory is presented (i.e. the Freudian basis given at length in Divided Mind) -- but I do believe the testimonies I've heard, and the idea of psychosomatic pain makes sense to me, and I believe I fit the personality profile pretty closely. So, I'm not at 100% but I'm hopeful, and that hasn't happened since the injury first appeared. My thoughts at this point are that I have difficulty seeing how repression would play into things, but I've done some mental probing and suspect I may run into interesting things before long. Excited to try the journaling exercises. I figure if I am unable to unearth anything, though, just the idea of returning to regular keyboard use instead of only gingerly interacting with computers in a state of persistent caution/watchfulness -- is very refreshing to me. I do have some fears that if I do this I will make my injury worse, but I'm telling myself to wait until that happens rather than assuming... Thanks for reading!
