    I have been dealing with pain for 5-6 years. I have been to a couple doctors for this. They mention that there are no organs in that area and they don’t know what could be the source of the pain. They have given referrals for both OMT and PT. Both of these practitioners were qualified and confident they knew what was wrong and how to fix it, but after months of treatments, the pain was still persistent.

    I started to think about Dr. Sarno’s work after this. 20 years ago, I had been dealing with carpal tunnel and back pain. After reading Dr. Sarno’s work back then, I had been living largely pain free for the past 20 years. I was thinking that this pain was different. That I was cured of my former condition, and that I had that part of my life fairly squared away.

    I then started to think about when my current pain started, when it was at its worst. These were all during very stressful periods of my life. Also, I started again looking at my personality type and history of family trauma. The bells started ringing, and here I am again :).

    I consider myself sort of a survivor, and I attribute much of where I am based on the fact that I have been able to muscle through difficult circumstances in my life. That has made me a resilient person, but it also has its limits (which I think I’m finding now). I think I’ll just allow a little grace to flow into my life now. I’d like to thank this community for being that grace.

    As I just put on another post - a leopard does not change its spots but it can recognise that it has spots!!
