    My uncle said, "Oh, is that why I had really bad back pain a few years ago?"

    My producer said, "That makes sense. You always seem upset. You should calm down."

    My therapist said, "I believe that it could be psychological, but maybe a part of it is physical" Then we argued. But she has chronic back pain so I doubt she'd be able to accept TMS, even if it is for me.

    My sister said, "Oh is that why I get knee pain?" then her knee pain went away. Then she'd keep asking me, "How's your toe today? How's your knee today?" and I would have to say, "Stop bringing me back to my body!" Sometimes being a little sterner than I needed to be.

    At first I didn't tell people. But now I do, because I don't want to feel so alone.
