Hello. I've been suffering from various TMS and equivalent symptoms most of my life. Back pain, neck pain, knee pain, chronic diarrhea, hives, insomnia. I have gotten some relief through Sarno's books, but I am stuck in the symptom imperative that he talks about. Diarrhea goes away, my knee starts acting up. Knee pain goes away, I break out in hives. Hives go away, its neck and back pain. A couple months ago I had insomnia and hives.....a really great combination if you like to stay up itching and scratching until you bleed all night. That was awful. I am on day 27 of the structured educational program. I have been very hesitant to post here, but I think it will help. Even as Im writing this I want to re-read it 10 times to make sure all my words are PERFECT. Thats what I do. Everything's gotta be perfect or you won't like me. At least I'm aware of it now and thats a relief. I just wanted to say hello and get started. I hope sharing my experience will help me understand this better. Thanks!!
