    Yep symptoms are definitely moving around. ever since I read the Sarno's book I knew it was TMS. i guess I trusted in his theory mostly because of the amount of people who he had helped cure. I get the pain in my arms, neck, hips and since i recently started skating a whole lot now sometimes its my lower back. It wasn't until recently that I decided the full extent of my hip pain was due to TMS....guess what tonight I went to Karate and I was able to move my hips a whole lot more freely then what I have been able to in a long time. When I feel the pain this is how I am starting to think- its not what your doing that's causing the pain, what you are doing is totally fine. Any voices that tell me I am doing it all wrong or any feelings of fear (for being wrong) i tell myself you are totally fine and i love and support you in what you are doing cause you are more then capable of doing it. I say it to myself with love as if i was saying it to my hypothetical child. I remind myself the pain does not mean that you are wrong and also that there maybe some emotions you aren't feeling. Sometimes I will try to relax to see if any emotion surfaces but the whole discovering and feeling your repressed emotions is something which i find difficult so generally I'll just take stabs at what it maybe that is upsetting me and sooth myself through some positive affirmations. This seems to help strengthen my spirit. Means the pain isn't always putting me into despair mode.
