I have been dealing with chronic pain since my early teens. It has appeared in many forms, and most recently my back in all places has caused me the most suffering. I have been connecting more with my emotions and seeing a counsellor for a couple years and have had a gut feeling that my emotions were connected to my pain. Recently, a friend told me about Dr. Sarno's book and it all clicked for me, and seemed to have come at this perfect time in my life. I've tried everything else, am sitting in a good connection place with myself, and am ready to be pain free. I also have come to a place where I feel like I deserve to be pain free, which is a bit step for me that I feel proud of.
