So, I know that Sarno is right. I know that the program works. About 12 years ago I found the Divided Mind when I was looking for books on anxiety because I was going off to college and freaking out. I had been having bowel issues, out of nowhere, for a few months. Everything was fine then all of the sudden I was shitting blood literally every time I went to the restroom (TMI...oh, well). I panicked and thought my life was ruined. I found the Sarno book and it literally changed my life. This pain and disorder that was becoming part of my life was losing its power and I realized the power of the mind because of this. I would have shit pop up here and there always the last decade. It never sticks but I have everything from shoulder issues, to lower back, knee, jaw pain thingy...all kinds of bullshit. Well, now I have created massive heartburn, slow digestion, gerd, overall digestive sensitivity. Everything I eat causes some bullshit. I think about it all the time. It makes me totally unhappy. It scares me because I can't eat without feeling shitty. I'm a business owner, I have two little kids, I've been married for 17 years almost. I struggle with paying for all this. We are a family business and we are always around each other. I was an only child and now I am constantly around people, which is a trip. And, I am pretty athletic and pretty much hold myself to a standard of intellectual and physical perfection. I also try to take care of everyone. But, I am here and committed to finishing the program. I've made myself very miserable and its getting old. I am ready to move beyond the fear and the misery.
