I read The MindBody Prescription about a month ago and it was earth-shattering. I've believed that our minds and bodies are intimately connected, in the power of the mind to affect our physical well-being and all of that but I didn't connect it with my chronic pain. Dr. Sarno's book blew me a way. Everything clicked. I was prepared to be instantly pain free. Well...I felt great for a couple of days. On a high, really. Then it started up. Again. And it's seemed to be worse than ever, but I don't know if that's because some of the symptoms are new and different, or if it's because I have actually felt good for a bit and the contrast between feeling good and feeling crappy is so great. I can see where starting to work though things, really look at them and work through them, might stir things up and let TMS rear its head again, thinking its got more of a chance. Wondering about your experiences, have you had this and if so how did you deal with it? I am so very tired of feeling this and so ready for it to go away for good.
