Today is the first day I hope to make a change. I have had sciatic leg pain and numbness in my left foot for almost 6 months now. I have been seeing a chiropractor, physical therapist, downed advil, see-sawed on inversion tables, done stretches galore, and am finally starting, in my opinion, the one program that will help me heal. I just read Sarno's book, Healing Back Pain, and am ready to do what it says and whatever it takes. I am 47 years old, married father of 2 kids, and I am tired of telling them that I can't walk around the block due to my pain, or I can't get up due to my pain, or I just need to sit here and let the pain subside. The pain is changing me for the worse. I don't like who I am becoming. I am binge eating junk, not hitting the gym, afraid of what the future holds - a long boring future of pain. But I am here now...ready to make the change and figure this whole thing out. I hope that whoever reads my story will just keep me in your thoughts and provide me with the necessary nudges along the way. Cause right now... I believe!
