    I was doing well with and got rid of the peroneal pain,but now I have pain in the malleolus bone. I went to the podiatrist, to make sure there wasn't a fracture, and sure enough no fracture. She does not know why I have pain in my ankle bone. I know it's TMS. I just want to be pain free, I want to go work out at the gym again and lose the holiday weight I have gained.

    Funny thing that happened was yesterday most of the pain had gone away. I was on my feet all day Friday because I hosted Christmas dinner. Today the pain came back. I guess I really have to work st this. Journal every day. I just would like to know if I can beat this. I ave so many issues, fears, and such. I feel like crying all the time. I finally got the job, that I had been temping for over the past two years.

    Any advice you an give is truly appreciated. I'd like to see a Sarno Therapist, but I live In a suburb that's 25 miles rom Boston. Any advice please...

    Hey Aces,

    First of all, it sounds like a lot of stuff is working out for you! You had a Christmas party, you got a job - that's awesome! I don't have a full time job right now :p

    Second - when you feel like crying, have you tried exploring what you're crying about through journaling? I am often surprised at what comes out through free writing or dialoguing.

    Have you already completed the SEP program? I am (very slowly) getting through the SEP program, and have found it really helpful for forcing myself to practice the basic strategies of positive thinking, reframing, and journaling. I tend to avoid that stuff, making myself busy with just about anything else until I've sunk down really deep.

    If you're looking for a therapist who knows TMS and can treat it, there are several who do online appointments. One of them is the Pain Psychology Center in Los Angeles
