My name is Carlie and I just started the SEP today. I have had chronic pain on my entire right side of my body for 5 years. I have been to every specialist & doctor over the years but Sarno's approach had come up many times in the past. Recently, it all just clicked with me that the emotional components of the pain are truly the root cause. I am definitely able to comprehend the approach on a conscious level but I guess I worry that I still have hesitations at an unconscious level. I want to feel confident about it on all levels. Also, I know I have a lot of layers to work through but I want to trust that I will work through them all and that in the meantime, the pain will get better and better as I am doing the work. Any other advice or suggestions for me, as a beginner, would be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
