hi, from my experience with friends, relatives, neighbours, peers,... I have concluded that the message of hope by dr. Sarno ("your body and health are OK, it's just a protective strategy...., don't worry and think about your unbearable emotions...") is rejected by the vast majority of sufferers. "Yes, interesting,... but not for me". Those "saved by Sarno" are perplexed about the indifference and resistance that can be detected in so many people (both sufferers and doctors!). Very, VERY frustrating and TMS inducing ! Opinions are welcomed. Thanks.
