It certainly is great to have family support when you have TMS. My younger daughter is going through the SEP as well so we are supporting each other. We have known about TMS for years but only recently discovered this website. It is helping us to deal with TMS one and for all (we hope). My older daughter is superficially supportive but suffers from an auto-immune condition that I can't help but feel is related in some way to TMS. My husband knows about the theory of TMS but does not really buy into it. Too bad because he has asthma and over the years has suffered from a long list of TMS symptoms - plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, back pain -you name it. He thinks everything can be solved by taking a pill or having physio. Over the years I have told many people about TMS theory and even loaned my Sarno books to some. No one has ever taken it seriously. It's been a bit discouraging but I have never lost faith. This online community is a wonderful support.
