Over the years I have tried an assortment of treatments. The usual list ... massage, acupuncture, pt, chiro, etc. The worst thing is when at the end of treatment I am no better and the practitioner basically shrugs and says I guess you'll have to live with it. Oh great. Thanks a lot. I don't want to live with it. FIX ME. That's what I'm paying you for. But, I'm now understanding that the cure is within me. Like Dorothy, I had the power inside all the time. I need to click my heals and say "it's all in my head, it's all in my head". Am I the first one to make that analogy? I think its a good one! Last night I watched the success story video posted by psychosomatic. The rest of the evening I was positively giddy ... my back pain was pretty much as low as it's been in a long time. Evidence. I woke up in the early hours of the morning and felt it again. I talked to myself and dismissed it. By the time I woke up again, it was there (that's my pavlovian time of day), but nowhere near where it has been the past week. Progress. I feel it now because (again my pavlovian time) I am getting ready to clean the house and get ready for thanksgiving dinner. I will periodically stop what I am doing to read or listen to more testimonials and videos. Hearing it definitely works best for me. I'm feeling hopeful.
