Day 1 I have been studying TMS for about a month now after my sister turned me onto it, and I wholeheartedly believe this is the answer to my random pains, anxiety and overactive bladder, IBS, and possibly allergies. I have even tried talking to my brain and telling it to stop the pain and let me experience the feelings it's trying to repress, and that's been successful. I am in the process of buying a house and have noticed pains coming from the stress of that, so I have tried to be cognizant of TMS symptoms during this process. I also found out I am newly pregnant, so that adds more stress to the moving situation. I have noticed the past few days how my brain has tried to turn my stress about moving into pregnancy symptoms, like cramps. I revisited the TMS wiki again this morning to calm my cramps and now they are gone. I think it's absolutely amazing that this process works and it makes me so happy to know it's out there. I just wish more people believed. My husband is a complete skeptic - he's stuck on the notion that TMS means your pain is all in your head. I tell him he's misunderstanding it… Dr. Sarno is not saying the pain is in your head. It's very real pain. It's just the source that is different from what you thought it was. I shared the Mindbody Prescription with a co-worker who has severe back and hip pain. He borrowed it for a few days, but didn't seem that interested. I don't really have any doubts, except that my allergies will be healed. I get bronchitis every December and am worried about getting that with a pregnancy, bc I don't think I can take the normal antibiotics I normally take, and I will suffer for weeks with this miserable cold. I hope once I get more into the program I will learn how to control the allergies.
