First I wasn't going to post because of the perfectionist in me. I am 98% pain free. Nov Dec Jan 2016 , 3 months off work. Can't walk. Read healing back pain. Read again and again, Wiki, Steve O ect. Got rid of workers comp, chiro,massage, pads ,ect. I knew that the longer I kept ''hitting'' tms with knowledge it would reveal its secrets to me. I got an MRI, showed my doc Steve O, Sarno books. Told her to turn the screen and tell me only if she saw cancer,fracture or tumor.Told her my goal was to jog . She told me I was good to go and wished she had more patients like me. I had some book cure in the beginning but needed to go through the work. The more time it took the more I became convinced it was tms. So in a way time is on your side because the longer it is there the more you know its not physical. Journaling was my life changer, and success stories (thanks psychosomatic for the videos). For years I would feel anger and never know why. I did see a therapist , she was not tms pro but very sympathetic to tms and my story. That really helped me. If you want details just read my story in profile. My last goal was to jog. I always hated jogging. But when you have something taken away from you ,you appreciate all the little things. I now jog 5kms every chance I get and only when I want to. I don't should over my self anymore. Steve O told me to increase relaxation,laughing and letting go. Dr Shubiner to do more living, loving and doing things that are interesting.and letting go. Now I journal less often but still do. I am much more mindful of my surroundings in real time. I meditate. NOW is all there is. The truth is NOW. The truth will set you free. I was living in my head, in the past, in the future.One day I read '' Don't live in your head there is no happiness there.'' it stuck with me. The big ONE is from Steve O book. ''Forgiveness'' so......true. Of others and myself. I know how you feel believe me I do. I want to thank GOD for keeping faith. Steve O , Dr Shubiner and Monte Huftle for responding to my emails. You are great human beings. Georgia Oldfield for her SIRPA site. But mostly THANK YOU Dr SARNO , you not only for saving my body but you saved my MIND and spirit and my wife for her love. Life is beautiful!!! Go outside and play. Sincerely, Intense or maybe Not so Intense 50.
