I am so glad to have found this program and to be looking at the principles of TMS again. By following the program, journalling, acknowledging the current stress in my life and how this creates physical pain (helped by re-reading Dr Sarno's book on Healing Back Pain) I am pain free and competed in a race last week. I went for a long run today and the level of anxiety I was experiencing about injuring myself has massively reduced. I am spending time in relaxation and meditation and trying to stay in touch with my feelings and 'think psychological' rather than physical. It is a huge relief and I can see now how the symptoms were creating a distraction from painful emotions. Thanks to all on the forums for posting their experiences and for the encouragement. I am going to keep on with the program and journalling, all the best to everyone else on the program.
