Day 4 Pain is moving

    After enduring continual pain in my hamstrings for years, I woke up last night at 12:30AM with a killer migraine. I can only think of one other time in my life I've had a migraine, and it was so brutal I vomited--I didn't vomit last night but I felt like I could have! I was so frustrated after drinking water and taking Advil didn't help and I just lied awake for hours until a thought hit me, "Oh maybe this is a *good* thing! My pain is moving?!" I have been telling myself for these first few days of this program, "My pain is all in my head..." and -- voila! -- the pain was now in my head! I finally fell asleep and woke up feeling good. Eager to get to the journaling to identify the underlying source of my pain.

    Thanks for your active contribution to this forum Jan! I appreciate you sharing that thread, I loved what you wrote here:

    Knowledge - Belief - Faith

    I have knowledge about how my brain creates symptoms for reasons that are emotional rather than physical
    I believe that there is nothing wrong with my body
    I have faith in my own strength and ability to change my brain and heal myself

    That really resonates with me <3
