Chronic knee pain success story

    I have recently freed myself from more than 18 months of intense knee pain that had left me immobilized for some time. Dr. Sarno's books and Alan Gordon's great program (thank you Alan and team!) were the key to my progress.

    I have written a blog with my story of the long, confusing story to freedom from the pain here: https://inscape489664645.wordpress.com/ (The Inscape).

    I am sharing it here in the hope that it might help others still walking their own journey.

    I am new to the forum so would welcome any suggestions on places and ways to share the story to reach people who might benefit from it.

    I fiercely hope that everyone who is still grappling with this condition can find the right path out of the pain.

    With gratitude,

    A wonderful story, and one for me to reread many times I think. I may well be back to comment here further - there's a lot to take in and digest from your experience of healing. Thank you Oliver.

    THANK YOU! You have woken me up to so much. I will read and reread your story again and again. I have lived my life always
    stuffing emotions, just no time for them, never realizing the importance of recognition for mental health reasons. I have
    been suffering r leg and hip pain for yrs, all tests completed, no physical reasons why. YOU have offered so much to the TMS
    community, thank you again. Nancy

    Hi Dida,

    I'm really sorry to hear you are struggling with pain. Here is the link to the post: https://inscape489664645.wordpress.com/2018/07/24/my-knee-pain-success-story-a-surprising-road-from-despair-to-joy/ (My Knee Pain Success Story: A Surprising Road from Despair to Joy)

    It was a hard road for me to do the inner work to experience my suppressed emotion and therefore eliminate my need for the chronic pain, but it was well worth the struggle and it has made my whole life much more whole. I hope your own journey goes well and let me know if I can ever be helpful.
