I am here because I have known for a while the pain is an emotional response. I bought the book a couple of years ago and only read half. I obviously didn't want to do the work so I quit reading (I don't even remember reading it). It became obvious to me there was something deeper when NOTHING I have done has worked. I know I have repressed memories because I only have a handful of memories from my childhood. I am actually feeling deep fear starting this program but it's time.
