After reading Dr. Sarno's book I recognized myself on so many pages. This acceptance and acknowledgment of my own situation was pretty amazing. No pain pills now for three weeks plus. That is wonderful. I have been doing lots of yard work and tell myself that I can move heavy items because I can and it will not hurt and it doesn't! The mind/body connection is pretty incredible. Now to do more work. Both on my mind/body and in the yard!
