Day 11 I needed 5 years to finally read the book I already bought

    As I read the article of Armchair Linguist, I rememberd that I had bought the book of Sarno 'Healing Backpain' about 5 years before I started to use it for the first time.
    When I bought it, I was then totally absorbed by the medical diagnoses about a lot of physical issues. All such strange pains. A couple of them were not related to anything I did or didn't. But all the therapists and doctors I visited, they knew what was wrong (posture, muscle problems etc.) and they promised to heal my quickly. Amazing what stories they've told me... Of course, they could earn a lot of money with the hope they gave me. (Sometimes I still feel a bit shame about me believing all those stories...).
    Now to me those pain-spots are not weird anymore at all. I see the mind is just so clever to choose the spots that confuse and distract me the most. It took however many years, money, tears and tons of courage to finally give up upon the hope therapists gave me, to just read the book I already had, and in total clarity surrender to the very simple but accurate diagnosis of TMS...
    Happy to wake up now for 2 weeks ago. To see that the frozen shoulder that has been visiting me since September, again is 100% TMS. And happy for this program!

    Hi Lydia,

    Wonderful post. Thanks for your encouraging words, for yourself and others...Most of us come to Dr. Sarno as a last resort. I appreciate how deeply you are embracing this work.

    Hi, Lydia. As they say, better late than never! You are on your way to healing, now that you have embraced Dr. Sarno's belief in TMS and have committed yourself so entirely to the SEProgram.

    I know how eel I saw the 20/20 clip in 2011 and dismissed it until 2016. Like Steve O says....the brain will not be denied.
