    First I want to thank everybody for sharing your stories of hope and to all the teachers for your incredible wisdom and generosity. I am new to Sarno's teachings and I am very new to this website. I had a foot injury (out of nowhere) last summer that took several months to heal. Then about 3 months ago, without any accident preceding it, my foot got reinjured. I felt so vulnerable after just standing up and getting injured again that it sent me into a tailspin of PTSD and severe anxiety. I've had anxiety before in my life but never this level of fight or flight for two months nonstop. I went to many doctors and healers and even sought help for the anxiety, all to no avail. My symptoms only got worse. My other foot began hurting. I began having nerve pain, burning and twitching and even started feeling sensations in my knees. It got to where I was even afraid to walk. I became hyper-vigilant about every body sensation and I really didn't know if I was ever going to be OK again. Somehow, and I can't even remember how, I was led to Sarno's books and this website and I have been devouring it all for the last week or so. With the exception of an occasional sensation, all, make that ALL of my pain and anxiety is gone. Today, I walked in the forest, my favorite place on the planet, and I got to be with the creek and the trees that I love and missed so much. I will continue to do this work, journal and stay connected here. I will continue reading and learning and thanking my mind for trying to divert me but let it know that I am willing and able to deal with every emotion. I am also currently searching for a TMS therapist in California who accepts Blue Cross if anyone know of someone. Thank you all and all my very best! :))
