    I haven't checked in here in a while. In many ways that is a good thing, showing I am less preoccupied with these somatic uprisings. I am secure that my somatic symptoms reflect my anxiety level and not some awful physical degeneration. If I get a crick in my neck, I may need to change my sitting position, but no longer do I suffer hours of wrenching neck and back pain. It amazes me that it had come on so strong and sudden, and that it left.
    The world we live in has been a scary place, and sometimes it is hard to compartmentalize.
    I do believe that everyone I have encountered in this forum has the motivation to overcome the brain's memorization of pain. Some will do it via the SEP, or some tradition or program. For a bit of humor, Bob Newhart's "Stop It" vignette on you-tube sums up the cure. Google it.
