I have believed in TMS on and off for 9 months however it was 3 months ago that I fully believed that this would work for me. I was stubborn and was trying to improve without sharing my progress with anyone. Also I was a little embarrassed that after surgery, injections, MRI's and hours of physical therapy and chiropractic sessions I was now finding success in a book from Dr Sarno. I mean how am I meant to explain this to people when it took me years of chronic pain to even consider it. My back pain has improved about 80% however the pain moved to my knee. This pain has irritated me more than the back pain as after complaining for years about back pain I felt I could not start telling people I cannot do things because my knee was now in pain especially since I hadn't exactly been active to injure my knee. Looking back there has always been some form of injury I have had. I am 35 and from 20 years old I have been known as Davie the promising footballer (soccer to some) who was unfortunate with injuries. The injuries became part of my story or I became them. Now after so long I just feel embarrassed that I have become that person who is always in pain I have joined the form and I am following the structured program because I have not progressed in the past month. I have never been on a forum before and I hope now opening up about believing in TMS will help me. My back has improved about 80% however sometimes I have days that are worse than others and mentally this impacts me just as badly as when my back was at its worst. I need to keep motivated but over time this is hard. I feel like I now have a new energy stepping in to do this and a new focus. Also writing this has helped me realise just how far I have come and that I have made progress as I am not in as much pain as I previously was I watched the Sarno 20/20 program again today and I remember the pain I was in the first time I watched in 9 months ago and the doubt I had, this has changed remarkably and I need to focus on this. Unfortunately I do find it difficult to cope with the combination of both knee and back pain at the same time, especially as the pain moves around. It has been in three different locations on my knee. Anyway I look forward to doing this program and to sharing my progress.
