    I would say the most disheartening thing my physician said to me, well first after numerous tests, meds, visit to neurologist, he said I have done everything medically one could do. But he did say try and see a therapist and maybe she can help you sort out some issues that could maybe help you with your pain. I thought to myself he is on to something but he doesn't know it. I brought up TMS and Dr Sarno but just shrugged it off politely.

    Hi, Marco. I never mentioned Sarno or TMS to my doctor but was very disappointed in him because he never gave me any natural pain or stress cures, just pills. He later dropped me, saying he no longer took HMO patients, which is not true. I think it was because I was too healthy for him to care about me. In other words, he didn't make enough money out of my care. Since I discovered Sarno and TMS two-plus years ago, I don't care about doctors.

    Walt I agree with that premises, its a shame that Drs are all in it for the money instead of helping patience live long lives naturally when they can.

    Marco, my Day 4 response is similar to yours, so I'm going to paste it in this thread. Please let me know your thoughts on this!

    I think everything that all the doctors and specialists have told me has added on to my frustration and lack of relief thus far. The fact is, no one actually found anything wrong with me. Some have “guessed” what I have, or assumed based on speculation due to the various symptoms I have had. I have heard so many different opinions, and every one of them has stuck with me to an extent. In my head, as much as I believe in TMS, my mind drifts back to the “structural” reasoning I have been programmed to believe. However, I am committed to the TMS work and I don’t believe that anything in medicine will help me with my chronic pain anymore. In fact, I am so skeptical of visiting any doctor now unless I’m really sick!

    How have you dealt with the diagnosis issues or lack thereof? How do you get yourself to move past what your doctor says? One of my main concerns with TMS recovery is that there is still underlying doubt and fear and I’m still working on overcoming these factors.
