Not really knowing where to start and still in pain. I've read Dr. Sarno's books and the Great Pain Deception by Steve O. I feel kinda lost and have reached out to a couple therapists. Hopefully it will happen. Just a note about myself...I am a nurse and really do believe in the power of the mind. I've seen a lot in my time as a nurse...like aa guy waking up out of a four month coma and begins to talk to us like nothing ever happen to him and heard everything that was said about him around his bedside. I think he was locked deep into his unconscious mind and didn't have the key to get out until he found the keys. This was many years ago and I will use this man as an inspiration to me in order for me to find the keys to a pain free life. I know I can recover...I jus know it. I posted this on another forum, but I will repost it again here because I need assistance and want a structured program to be my seeing eye dog to help me. I hope someone reads this forum to give a little advice once in a while. I started out with right Hip pain and radiated into my Foot. I has surgery to removed a synovial cyst and it didn't help...still pain. About a year of trying to move forward when I was diagnosed with TMS but had difficulty grasping it. Ended up with another surgery (fusion)- XLIF and same result. I FINALLY dove into accepting my diagnosis after reading 3 of Dr. Sarno's books, Unlearn your pain and the great pain deception. I have been following up with journaling twice a day, controlled breathing and meditation. I believe I am making some progress because the damn pain is moving around. I always have lower Back Pain that lightens up but the beginning of the week my left foot hurt ? I talked to my brain and that went away. Now my right Shoulder ? Do I have this on the run or what people ?
