Prior to reading Dr. Sarno's book in June, I have been very inactive for not quite 2 years. My pain went from frozen shoulder, to plantar fasciitis, to low back/sciatic pain. So, I was afraid to further injure myself. After reading the book, watching the lectures, I accepted the pain was from my head, not back. So, I am now walking 1 1/2 hours per morning, working out with (light) weights, doing abs, etc. My goal is to start jogging again, but I don't think I'm quite ready yet (I'm walking with my daughter, pregnant with our first grandchild - I don't want her to jog!). When she resumes teaching in the fall, I plan to resume running. Initally, I walked through the pain. I just decided to accept it, and tried hard to not think about it too much...Lately, I'm noticing less and less back & leg pain with walking. And, when it's there, I try to think about what's stressing me out! My foot has been hurting some - I've just been telling myself, NO, we're NOT going back there!!! It feel wonderful, feeling free to do things again. I even thought I couldn't load and unload my dishwasher - I've confessed to my husband, I can now!!!
