    Hi everyone! I'm so happy, I'm actually noticing a change. I went for entire day without pain! I've had excruciating back, rib, knee and shoulder pain for a year and three months. Every single day. At day 17 I was ready to give up. But with the encouragement of lots of people on this website, I decided to keep going.
    I've been reading Dr. Sarno's books, and I just got The Great Pain Deception by Steve Ozanich.
    I love this book! His story is so fascinating and very inspiring. I was reading it on the weekend and I couldn't put it down. I got about a quarter of the way through , and suddenly my pain was gone. It came back in full force the next day, but I proved to my brain that I could actually have an influence on it. And I really learned that it really takes varying lengths of time to be cured. I'm more relaxed now and I've forgotten about having any kind of timeline for recovery. I just know that it will happen at some point. I'm just continuing to live through my pain and it's helping.
    The book is really fun to read. It has lots of humour in it, great and thorough information about TMS and Steve is an amazing guy.
    So if anyone is "stalled" in their recovery, or having doubts about their progress, get this book, it will really help you .
    Hugs
    Debra

    Congratulations, you sound more relaxed and chill about the whole thing. Yes, Steve's book is amazing. Very inspirational, of course, so is your story.

    Hi, Debra. It's so great to read your post and see how you are healing.
    Steve really is wonderful and his book so inspirational.
    Never give up is the way to go.

    Thanks Walt and Peggy. You are both the reason I am hanging in there and not giving up. I haven't had a pill for two days which is also a huge accomplishment for me. I usually have at six four or more a day.
    Hugs

    You are getting results, and you are right, this is a huge key, whether you feel great the next day or not. I am so happy for you.

    Thanks Andy
    I've since had only another few hours of pain relief, and it is now back strong again, but even to have any kind of relief is very positive.

    For me all it took was an exception or two and mind began to grasp this new reality! I was scheduled for nerve surgery, and in a couple of months I was fine again, without the damaging surgery. You've got the right outlook!

    I'm really happy that you're better Andy. I still have a long way to go, and I know I need to be patient but I'll get there.

    Rather belatedly I would like to express my congrats to you, DebraW, for staying with it, definitely the harder option but the one with the most rewards!

    Even small healing progress means TMS pain is going away.

    I want to post an article I read today and share its inspiration. I will work on it now
    and put it in the General Discussion Subforum.
