    Hi everyone,

    I writing this as the first day of the structural educational program, although I have already read one of Dr John Sarnos books I still require a lot of help to recovery.

    I have been chronic back pain for 3 years, and have been to every doctor on earth with at least 4 MRI scans, and not one treatment has worked. It all started at as a painful football injury in my left buttocks, and evolved into left back pain along side and then finally just back pain all over.

    I believe I know which emotional issues might be at play, However I don't know how to feel them. Do you know any techniques to release repressed emotions?

    And finally how can I build my confidence in the diagnosis, as consciously I fully believe it although I have gut doubts (probably the tms trying to fight back.)

    Hi David and welcome, you did a good thing by starting SEP, it can only help. How to feel repressed emotions? That is a good question and I don't have an answer, I can only tell you what worked for me for some of the repressed emotions. Journaling in a specific way: if you know what is causing your TMS, what traumas or people: write an unsent letter or dialogue to them imagining yourself in that exact moment. Not now. If it is something that is happening now, obviously it would be in the present. Confidence in the diagnosis comes from the fact that you've done the checks and the treatments didn't work, also seeing a TMS specialist might help, you can do it over skype if there are none near you. Reading other people's sucess stories will help making you feel less lonely in this, knowing people healed gives hope.
