I am "P's twin." I chose that user name because of all the identities I have (someone's wife, someone's mother, etc) I've had that one the longest and it has undoubtedly been the most influential in my life. We both think we are special gifts to one another and treasure each other. Although my father died when I was 8 and I've faced challenges in my life, I think that I've had a good life but I've always felt that something was missing, a spiritual connection I haven't been able to make, so I keep searching for it. I picked up a book in mychurch library called The Untethered Soul,which lead me to look up "Breathing" in a book by Andrew Weil, which mentioned John Sarno, so I "goggled" him and did some reading and here I am. TMS sounds like me (any my twin)! I can't say I have quite committed to the diagnosis yet, but I did get The Divided Mind out of the library and I ordered another Sarno book to keep. I figure I have nothing to lose by following this path as far as I can. It is better than taking drugs for reflux, depression, and thyroid disease; using a night guard to prevent teeth-grinding; and contemplating knee replacement surgery. It is hard to believe that everything that is wrong with me is TMS because I am almost 64 and nothing lasts forever, but too many of my problems seem to fit TMS perfectly to discount the diagnosis. Anyway, I am going for it and would appreciate your support.
