First post. In thinking about the pain I have experienced for the last 17 years it is like it has become a companion and I am afraid to say goodbye to it. I have been aware of TMS and Dr Sarno's processes for about a year. It was a great boon to find the wiki and this programme. My pain areas are left foot, neck and shoulders. Occasionally lower back and right knee also. I am active. Like to walk the dogs, play hockey, run a little and lift some weights in my garage. I use a hand mower to do the lawns, like to garden. I am 49, male. Let's begin.
