Hello everyone, I got introduced to TMS and Dr. Sarno's work when I had a repetitive stress injury issue in college. I found it straightforward to apply his approach to my RSI problem and was cured within a few weeks. Since then I have tried to cure myself of frequent colds / allergies but have not complete success. Through doing meditation, therapy, and other personal growth work starting about 6.5 years ago I have improved my symptoms quite a bit though. And truth be told, I think given the path I am on I will eventually develop close to complete success. That being said I've had a recent setback (a whole month with cold/allergy symptoms). The good news is a few years ago it would have been normal for me..whereas now it feels very abnormal. Anyway, how does one apply the same approach to cold / allergy symptoms as one would to physical pain. I find it hard not to think about cold / allergy symptoms because they could potentially effect my plans. A lot of people worry about catching a cold and often I can't tell if I have a cold or allergies (especially since the symptoms I'm talking about never involves a fever or needing significant bedrest..so I guess it's either frequent minor colds, allergies, or both). Also, some activities I just can't do (or are very awkward) when I have cold/allergy symptoms like dance, going on a date, or going to the dentist. Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
