Day 1 of the program. I'm really hoping this is it!! (Can you sense the hesitation there?). I read Dr S's book probably almost 4 weeks ago and started immediately feeling better. Then this last week or so it has gone downhill again. I am diagnosed sciatica L5-S1 disc herniation. Have had injections after 1.5 yrs of chronic pain. I have always believed it emotionally related since my initial "injury" happened the week I ended a 7yr relationship and moved back into my dads house. What an emotional roller coaster. I believe 100% in the TMS diagnosis. I just still have the physical fear, like sitting here now I'm accommodating the pain because it just hurts so much to not, and I feel mentally exhausted trying to convince or fight with myself about it not being physical. I know it's not physical but damn it hurts and making physical adjustments eases my stress level. So I have to figure that one out. Sigh* I'm also just fearful about me being one of the few ppl this doesn't work for. But if it's worked for so many... Why should I be any different?!? I can't wait to be pain free!! It would be such an amazing life giving gift.
