So, I'm following the suggestion to post on Day 1. I've been following Dr Sarno's books for four weeks now and I am 95% pain free. I've realised that what is perpetuating my pain is fear that it will come back and worry about it popping up again in the future even if I have overcome it now. It's almost instantaneous: I worry and, twang, there's the pain. I even think I have trouble fully accepting that there is nothing structurally wrong because I've been told for seven years that I have herniated discs, sciatica, inflammation, etc., etc. This is even when my osteopath looks at my case history and can't find anything wrong in my copious medical notes. I have my life back in just four weeks and I'm determined to keep going to overcome my pain forever.
