    After researching for treatments to help reduce my chronic neck and back pain, which was confirmed through findings on MRIs I accidentally ran across Dr. Sarno's "Healing Back Pain". I watched the 2-hour lecture the same day and have hopes (and doubts) that TMS is the real reason for my chronic pain, but I am going to "jump feet first" into this and follow (and believe) in the program. Today is Day 1 for my recovery and path to a pain-free life!

    Hi, jrid. Welcome to the TMS club. I agree with Kevin that the SEProgram will help you to be well again. It helps in discovering the emotional causes of our pain. MRIs can show structural problems but often they are caused by our emotions. When we learn them the pain goes away.

    Keep us posted on your progress in the SEP. And have a wonderful holiday.

    Thanks for the support. Starting Day 3 and remain hopeful for a pain-free life. My biggest issue is believing TMS is the reason for my pain at a "gut" level, and trusting the process (since almost all other medical approaches have failed).
