    Took a few days off but still plugging along. Last week was difficult due to several stressors... as well as hormones.

    I can tell when I start to really believe and think psychological things seem better. If nothing else my outlook seems stronger. When I focus on pain it really does be much worse. I have known this for many years but did not really understand what was going on. I remember telling my PT I didn't want to " wake the monster" when she wanted to check a trigger point in my psoas during a time that it was less severe.

    I'm not sure which article or book has been most helpful to me yet. Maybe it's a sentence here or there from several places including here or even the Facebook page.

    There's nothing wrong in taking a few days off from the SEProgram. And I find it good to accept pain, know it is from repressed emotions, and journal to discover what those are. I've found helpful healing techniques in Sarno and other TMS books. I also like many videos on Youtube that are on subjects related to TMS such as anxiety, depression, headaches.

    I am happy, Shells, for you in this insight. In my experience, insights like this which open up some "space" around the way we usually operate in ourselves, are very profound. The changes which they bring may not be immediate, but they go deep and do their work over time...
