I accidentally saw the youtube 20-20 video about Dr Sarno. Having had back pain for 30 years I downloaded Dr Sarno’s book Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body connection. The book freaked me out a little. It was all about me and I could not stop reading. I was skeptical though. It would not be the first time I thought I had found an answer, so I downloaded and read Steve Ozanich’s Book Pain Permanent Healing. After that, most of my sitting pain was gone and the walking pain in my hip reduced to half a day. I was glad to find something that helped, but I was angry about all the medical treatments I had gone through over 30 years. I was stunned when I remembered my IBS which preceded the low back sitting pain. All the invasive tests (that showed nothing). My neck surgery, all the stretching and exercising, the gadgets, I have a back pillows everywhere. Beyond angry, stunned and sad, I am a little scared. I had psychotherapy for PTSD and depression all through my 20’s. It is no surprise to me that I have repressed emotions, I’ve had amnesia. I just had no Idea I could do this to myself.. The Idea of letting emotions out is a little disturbing. I learned 40 years ago never tell anyone you are seeing a shrink or have an emotional problem, they will treat you different after that.
