I've been dealing with horrendous eye pain for nearly a year now. I've been to countless doctors, tried different drugs and signed up to all the Facebook groups. I only get a flare up when I smell certain smells such as cigarette smoke. I am also unable to wear contacts and can only wear glasses. I discovered Dr Sarno and TMS a few days ago, and once again feel hopeful. I am a very tense person, ambitious, hard working, conscientious and a bit of a people pleaser, so I fit the description. I do also have repressed anger and frustration from my childhood. I am now working with a therapist to become more aware of my feelings and trust my body (I am also dealing with hip pain and a diagnosis of hip dysplasia). Here's to hope!
