    I first experienced unexplained pain and suffering in 2001. I was then diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The funny thing is, it went away after a few years. In looking back, it was a very stressful time in my life and clearly my body was absorbing all the painful emotions I was experiencing at the time. In 2011 I started having pain again. I definitely keep all my feelings buried deep inside and refuse to deal with them. I, too, saw myself on the pages of the book. I was completely pain free and feeling amazing back in 2013 after my marriage ended once and for all. Then the stress of a new relationship started pain again in 2014. The pain has become unbearable and is affecting all parts of my body. I've done massage therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and am now receiving lidocane injections along my spine (for scoliosis) along with physiotherapy (dry needling) in my neck and shoulders. I recently had a very painful emotional event in my life, and guess what? I couldn't run anymore - and I'm training for a half marathon. I now know what's going on. I've spent thousands of dollars. No more. This is the first day of the rest of my life.

    Hi, Taluca, and welcome to TMS knowledge, this web site, and healing. You are now part of a very helpful and caring community and it won't cost you a red cent. You're on your way to healing because you now believe your pains are caused by TMS, that they are from emotional stress and are not structural. It sometimes take a lot to arrive at acceptance of TMS, but you are now there. It is indeed the first day of the rest of your life.

    The SEP will guide you through mental exercises that will help you to learn what the emotions are that cause you pain, and how to deal with them.
    As you work daily (if possible, but not essential) in the SEP, remember to practice deep breathing (inhale through the nose to the count of 4, hold your breath for 4, then exhale through your mouth to the count of 4.) Others may suggest longer periods, but 4 is enough for most of us.

    Chronic fatigue, scoliosis, etc., are all symptoms of TMS. You will be free of them very soon. Keep positive. Distract your pain with visualizing pleasant thoughts and places.

    Let us know how you progress in the SEP. Questions? Fire away. We will offer help.

    Also, read the success stories in the subforum, watch the TMS videos, and watch the TMS videos on YouTube.
