I have been dealing with pelvic pain for almost two years. I have had multiple dx's from physicians and physical therapists...vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, posterior femoral cutaneous nerve pain. It was mentioned to me early in the beginning of pain that vulvodynia is a mind/body disorder but at the time I was so distraught I wasn't ready to listen. During my physical therapy treatment for this pain my PT would notice that my symptoms didn't always match the diagnosis. I also started to notice some inconsistencies in the pain. I started to do some research on the internet about mind/body disorders and came across John Sarno. I started reading the reviews of his books on Amazon but didn't see anything come up about pelvic pain. I continued my research and bought Unlearn your Pain. I contacted Dr. Howard Schrubiner and he confirmed that vulvodynia/pelvic pain is yet another form of TMS. This research led me here. Today I am starting the SEP program. I have had many traumas in my life but have never written about them. I have suffered from anxiety and depression in the past as well. I am honestly a bit nervous to start to journal for what may come up. I have worked hard at trying to forget my past. I am also working on my total acceptance of TMS. I still have the noise of the doctors and physical therapists in my head. I believe I am getting closer though. I find comfort in reading TMS books. I have also been helped by Dr. Claire Weekes books in the past. I have quite a bit of anxiety over the thought of this program not working but I guess that's part of the total acceptance of TMS.
