I have had a few successes with either writing about my emotions or speaking to my therapist about them. Sometimes it makes a significant reduction in pain, but mostly no difference. The small number of times it does make a difference, the pain always returns, often more intensely than before. Does this sound like it might be 'programming', or is it likely something else entirely. I am also going swimming regularly and reading through Sarno's book "The MindBody Prescription". Is there anything else I should be doing? Would meditation make much of a difference, and if so which site do people recommend? I tried Headspace, but couldn't find the 'free' part of it.
