After having read through success stories, it seems that part of "recognizing" the psychogenic source of the pain is not simply an "intellectual" understanding that emotional issues are causing the pain, but rather really "feeling" the understanding. I'm currently taking prozac, which blunts my emotions. I never feel particularly happy or sad. I can't cry. I feel that since I can't cry, I can't purge myself of negative emotions. Has anyone here made real progress while on SSRI meds?
