    Thanks, Richsimm22. I watched and read and it's something we should look at every day
    to remind ourselves.

    I'm currently trying to memorise them as not only do I want the information etched into my conscious, I also want it to be etched into the subconscious part of my brain. I'm slowly getting there. I can just about remember them if I think really hard but I want them to become second nature like remembering my name. I'm going to try and write them over and over. I think that will help.
    Once I have them I printed in my mind I can think about each one at any time.
    My brain WILL get the message. My mind is so full of western medical myths and garbage I need this new information to push the old stuff out the way :)

    I love your style Richsimm22, very good way of learning how to think psychological.
    Always think of the emotions when you have pain right, and then you will
    eventually know which emotions are connected to the symptoms.
    Have a great weekend.
    Bless You

    Richsimm22, THANK YOU for post that! I took a screen shot of the 12 reminders and will print out a few copies to post around the house. Writing them out is a terrific idea too. The more senses (such as writing), we can include in learning something new, the better it sticks.

    So, I'll be setting these to interpretive dance. Kidding! I'm just kidding!

    I personally find the last of the 12 Key Thoughts to be the hardest and yet among the most important:

    "I must think psychological at all times, not physical."

    Surprising how often a physical, structural explanation keeps creeping into the back door of your mind, no matter how much you know better. I guess that just indicates how much TMS theory is counter-intuitive and runs against the mechanical engineering mind set that pervades modern medicine.

    I agree, Bruce. Thinking symptoms are psychological and not physical can be the toughest one of the 12.
    Especially believing it 100 percent. But it's the key that unlocks the door on pain.

    Yeah, the psychological is tough. And for me, especially the rage thing. Much easier to think about a leg length discrepancy than face the pissed-off shadow lurking within.
