Two years ago, when I moved to the states I went through like four months of a depression and soon after developed tension in between my shoulder blades that has now spread up to my neck and sometimes into my low back sometimes. I have tried everything else (but not consistently) and Xrays showed that I have a scoliosis and mild disk degeneration. I know my issue is psychosomatic but today, for example my right shoulder blade has been in so much pain and since reading your book I think it's gotten ever worse, and I sit there thinking 'okay, what is my psychological repression right now?' and i'm scanning my brain thinking of all the possible things that could be giving me anxiety or anger but the pain doesn't go away, (sometimes it does for like a second) but then I'm just so frustrated like, why isn't this getting better?? I have self diagnosed myself with TMS just because I know it begun at a really low point in my life, but I wish my body would just stop repressing so life can move on.
