Today is day 1 for me on this structured educational program. But not day 1 in discovering TMS as a diagnosis and beginning my journey of healing myself. I have read Dr. Sarno's books plus several others, listened to hours of lectures and testimonies from TMS patients and physicians. And daily I use an app Curable to help educate me, retrain my brain and apply writing and other techniques to healing my pain. The meditations have been a lifeline and since using them as I fall asleep, I've gotten 6-7 hours of restful sleep every night for awhile now. Sleeping had always been tough with chronic pain and a restless mind. My doc says that's when my brain was most active and I was experiencing anxiety or even panic attacks while asleep. As I tackle my stressors, my brain has calmed and I'm sleeping great. I have a ways to go to be completely healed but I am hopeful, pursuant and not giving up!
