I tried posting this already, but for some reason it did not come through, so if this is a repeat, I apologize. I am now at day 36 and find that it is no co-incidence that I am having more and different pain than when I started. I originally began with back and hip pain, that was painful but manageable. Now I have a brand new knee pain that makes it hard for me to walk down stairs and am just coming out of a week long back spasm. I trust that all this journaling is stirring up many repressed emotions. I thought that I would go to see someone to get an idea if my knee pain was structural or more TMS so went to the directory and found a doctor in my area. This doctor charges $600 an hour with no insurance. I figured that that was as good an incentive as any that I could do this alone. In some ways, perhaps I should welcome these new pains and view them as my road out of the darkness and old fears; my breadcrumbs out of the forest, as it were. Now if I could only get over my fear of eating carbs!
