Hi everyone! It's great to find resources like this online for free. After few weeks of hesitation I decided to start the program. I'm suffering chronic low back pain for almost 4 years now and I've gone through all the medical routines, been diagnosed with a "non-active" herniated disc and tried everything in earth except surgery. Another pain manifested in one of my shoulders one year ago, coming and going, extending to middle back and arm (tennis elbow), chronic for the last 4 months. I was diagnosed with a protusion last year regarding this pain, but the tennis elbow condition appeared 10 years ago, and returns every now and then for a couple of weeks. Before the back pain I went through a burn-out depression (2 years) and before, I suffered from chronic fatigue (2 years), and before chronic cystitis (2-3 years). Sometimes the ailments cross, but I've been fully aware that this is one thing that moves and that the main reason is emotional. I've been doing psychotherapy for few years now, and the psycho-somatic/pain topic is one of the things I've worked on. It definitely helped lots with the depression but the pain it's still there. I came up with dr. Sarno's book in audio format few weeks ago (almost finished it) and I could totally relate to it all. Now, it didn't change my pain patterns at all, and I must confess that there's some skepticism in me. I believe in all the success stories, but I have the impression my pain is a really stubborn one, mainly because I've worked a lot with my emotions already- though, certainly, not under the light of TMS theory. Anyways, I'm giving this a try now, and trying to convince myself it's gonna work this time!
