    I'm 26 and have been dealing with life-limiting pain and feeling like I'm defective and 'less' for the last 6 years.

    I have read Dr. Sarno's book, completed Week 0, and am doing Dr. Alans plan in tandem with this one.

    I do accept that I have TMS, but I am struggling to deeply believe I can manage it. I have no structural issues after seeing 10+ doctors and trying every traditional and non-traditional treatment. I try to go into each treatment hopeful but I am used to being crushed and hopeless every time something doesn't work. Previously, I wouldn't have believed my mind could cause pain. I also didn't recognize how much I was repressing or how much anger I had. (Now I am aware of all that I am repressing, but still have to do the hard part of confronting it).
