I'm so excited! Five weeks ago I discovered Sarno's books. Since 4 weeks I'm basically painfree. I started working out again, which I missed SO MUCH. So I'm very very happy. After 8 years of pain and being less and less and less active, and having lots of treatments I was having less pain, but totally afraid of moving. I had pain in my ankles, knees, hips, buttocks, lower back, upper back, they would call it fibromyalgia. The symptoms started synchronically with my mother's illness. She was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder 9 years ago. Now my knee pain is still there (left knee, started 15 years ago) and my right hip hurts when I stretch. But that's all. Apart from that I feel fine! I work out 3 times a week now So, that's my story in short. Now I have started running since last week. It gives me quite some pain. The first time not too much, the second time a bit more, the third time (today) quite bad: in my hips. Who else has this experience, any advice? I keep repeating the 12 principles and focus emotionally again an again. I must say, after last time the pain diminished within about two days. It was almost gone before I started running again today. Today was worse though. So I signed up here and just started with day one of the education program. Loved the video. It gives so much hope, and I was really laughing about the brother (the doctor). So skeptical and stiff.
