Although this is only Day 8 of the structured program, I'm actually 8 weeks into TMS recovery (I started with Healing Back Pain -Sarno) and doing extremely well. My @1 starting goal was to be pain free and healthy enough to play drums again...something I do professionally as a vital part of my annual income. Bottom line... I just played drums for 90 minutes yesterday. Not 'pain free', but getting really close. But the key thing is that playing DOESN'T 'MAKE ME ANY WORSE. And I can work again. That alone does wonders for the my general disposition and outlook on life. I've moved beyond hope... after 4 years of suffering, I am finally kicking this thing's ass. There's something important I want to say to folks who are just starting with the program. Like me, you probably read a lot of testimonials about people who read a book and were almost instantly cured. I know people personally who had that experience. So naturally, when I got to the end of my first THREE books, I was disappointed that I wasn't feeling any better. But since I had tried everything else, I figured I had nothing to lose by sticking with it. And boy, am I glad I did! I guess some of us just take longer than others for the myriad reasons described in Sarno's books. It really took about 6 weeks before I noticed any physically improvement, but then things really started happening....over the most recent two weeks the recovery started going really quickly. I feel like my unconscious is really accepting the diagnosis and beginning the process of rewiring the way I process life events...past, present, and future. In the past, I might have just stopped with the treatments now that I am feeling so much better. But not this time. I am going to stick with this structured program all the way till the end of it. It's helping...I know it is, and I want to do everything I can to make this a lasting cure. I sure hope its helping you too!
