    What is the most important thing I've learned from doing the SEP? All of it!
    I so very much appreciate the community here, and of course the ideas of Dr Sarno and all those that have followed him - you've opened my eyes and I'm swept off my feet by all that's here.
    My pain has decreased noticeably, and in my head I am formulating what I'll say to my consultant at a review meeting in October. Should I be brave and mention Dr Sarno, the TMS wiki, the possibility that mind-body disfunction is something he should be explaining to his other patients?
    I am talking to myself, laughing at the silliness of my deceptive mind, and dreaming vivid dreams that I guess is my unconscious trying to process all the work I am feeding it.
    It is very revealing to find out that I have many of the personality characteristics that feed TMS. I think that I might change some of it! Not sure how, but I think this is the route to no pain.
    I haven't visited my childhood memories for a very long time - a lot of them bring anxiousness, and I'm relying on you guys to gently let me step through my fears with journaling and letter writing.
    I "see" and "hear" little clues every day....no I'm not going mad! I stopped when out walking 2 days ago, and looked at the moon , and realised that stopping and staring is very important. My Tai Chi teacher, when explaining about a previous character-bashing confrontation with someone hostile told me he said back "I am absolutely me". Long may it be so!
