I haven't yet noticed significant changes with the pain, but I've begun to see how I tense my body when I get upset. When I began reading Dr. Sarno's book, the stiffness and pain in one of my joints loosened enough so that I was able to bend my left knee for the first time since I injured it over 17 months prior. I see a lot of myself in Dr. Sarno's books, and am hopeful that years of back pain, SI joint pain, and my fairly recent knee pain will subside. When I reflect further, I see that I've had bouts of pain in different areas of my body since I experienced a severe case of septic arthritis as a 6 year old child. To tell you the truth, I am not sure if the illness itself caused the trauma, or the scary procedures used on me. It has been a 40 year journey. I've learned a lot about PTSD in the past year or so, and I am curious if anyone else in this forum has experienced trauma. Now I see why I was developing so much anger inside in recent years - it's finally surfacing and I am determined to expunge it.
