Introducing myself - nomad

    Hi everyone,
    After a few months looking around and reading stories I thought it was time to introduce myself.
    I've had RSI symptoms for almost two years now, and since reading Sarno's book and following the educational program, I seem to be getting better. I'm still only party convinced as the pain still comes and goes though I also know it has to be TMS because of its irregularity and moving around. (and because I can write this story without ANY pain after even a full day of work and 2 months ago I was still using speech recognition programs). I also seem to get other symptoms flaring up such as skin allergies/rashes. I've had RSI some 15 years ago as well (when it was more trendy) and at that time it just went away. Before and after that I've had periods of lower back pain. So my issue now is the flaring up.
    I would actually like to know if there are therapists who specialise in online support or if anything is possible for someone who doesnt live in America/Europe. I don't live anywhere at the moment, I travel for work and work where I find myself, and this is mostly in places with no proper therapists.
    This is an amazing support site/forum, thanks so much for all contributors. You really helped me.

    Hi, Nomad.

    Welcome to the TMS healing club. I had severe back pain but healed after learning about TMS and
    reading Dr. Sarno's book. The SEP also helped me a lot, especially journaling to discover my TMS emotional stresses.

    I suggest you go to the "Ask a TMS Therapist," free in one of the subforums on this web site, and tell about your symptoms and
    ask advice for healing.

    Your pain is probably flaring up again because you have some unresolved emotional issues. A job that takes you traveling a lot
    can be part of them.

    The stronger you believe your back or other pain is not structural but TMS from repressed emotions, the faster you will heal.
    It takes 100 percent belief in TMS.

    If you fly a lot, are you always sitting comfortably? I once took a bus trip from Chicago to New York City and got back pain
    from sitting over a rear wheel.

    But I think your pain is TMS.

    Hi Nomad,

    Welcome to this site.

    Check the practitioner directory here. There are some therapists who will work via Skype. That would be perfect for you.

    Hi David and Walt, thanks for your welcome and your support. I will check the directory.
    Walt: sitting is not an issue, or discomforts of traveling in general. However, nomadism gives some stress aside from huge freedoms. Meditation and making better plans/todo lists already help reducing my stress levels :)
