Hello everyone, I have been suffering from chronic back pain for 18 years now. I had a fusion l5 s1 in 2002. About a year ago my pain started to increase. Not sure why. It got so bad I had to give up my part time job. I have tried everything to cure this pain. Chirp, ostiotherapy, physio, tens, medications, heating pad, etc. I have had ct Scans and a MRI. The only thing showing is degeneration. My dr Said the amount I have is to be expected for a 43 yr old. I read John sarno's book in the past and thought nothing of it. Now I am thinking it is my last option. I'm going to give this a 100%. I am a prisioner in my home and I want to get back to my life. I have hopes and dreams that I'm always thinking of. My back consumes me. It' what people talk about when they see me. I want that to change. This is a 90% success rate so why not. My only concern is I'm really not sure what I am holding on to. What is causing my tension? I did separate from my spouse of 26 years 2 years ago. Is it that? Have I not gotten over that? I found a great guy so why would I be struggling with my past? I have a hard time letting anything go. If anyone says something that hurts my feeling I hold on to that. Is it that? I worry about money and my future. My kids future. Is it that? Is it everything?
