I have been on the Sarno and Brady plan for a month now and have felt less back pain in recent weeks but am not completely pain free. I think that is because I have not totally accepted the TMS being psychological and have still had about 10 percent of thinking the pain is from aging. I am 82 and have been thinking some of the pain is from normal disintigration of muscles or vertebrae. So no wonder the pain is not completely gone. Today I've started to believe TSM 100 percent and tell my subconscious I am only 25 and healthy and that the pain is entirely from anger, guilt, rejection, etc. I have identified enough reasons for those emotions and have journaled about them. I've been walking farther each day and this morning may have doubled that. Some pain, but I told my subconscious it's psychological and not from aging. Maybe I'm finally on the way toward being pain free. Maybe this will help others, too. Any suggestions, advice?
