Hi All, I'm new to this forum having just finished reading 'Healing Back Pain' by Dr Sarno. I'm finding all of this TMS stuff very interesting and my personality fits pretty well. The question I have is how are you guys taking control of the pain? how do you know what or where to find your repressed emotions? can they just be minor things?. Or do you have success from just an awareness that the pain is not physical? I understand that most people go through emotional trauma or have repressed anger on anxiety for one reason or another but other than having a bit of stress at work i can't really think of what could be giving me the problem. I had a very happy childhood for example (that is I think, unless I have something so dark and disturbing that I have no recollection at all). Do you need to go searching for these feelings? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
