Thank you for this page, it's a lifesaver! I had read Dr. Sarno's book (recommended by a friend) a year ago in response to knee pain that was lasting for months. When that pain finally subsided in the end of January,out of the blue, I developed severe fatigue, extreme lower pelvic pain and many other symptoms, which when checked out extensively showed nothing wrong with me. I then thought that it was the Lyme (I had been bitten 5 years ago, had flu like symptoms and fatigue, fogginess, insomnia, problems with cognition, etc. for months.) These symptoms would come and go every few months and I turned to alternative ways to treat it (Chinese herbs, acupuncture, etc.) and many of my symptoms would gradually subside. But at this point, I was pretty desperate because this flare up was so bad I couldn't work for three months now total. Someone recommended Nicole Sachs podcast and I started with Journal speak that very night. I had been taking a homeopathic treatment but hadn't had any real shift over that month. Once I started to journal though, things began to shift. I did more reading and kept listening to the podcasts and whatever TMS information I could find and realized that I'd had a vast variety of TMS symptoms for decades. Now, about 6 weeks later, my symptoms have improved tremendously and I was able to start working again. But, I'm also learning about the triggers that arise and I'm finding it challenging to not just repress the anger, for example, but to be skillful with it. In hindsight, I believe I got sick bc of repressing the anger I was feeling with my work dynamic over a long period of time, which, unfortunately is still there. How do I manage the anger, fear, without repressing it?
