    A few days ago I realized that I haven't had any seasonal allergies this year. HOLY COW!

    They started mid-August 20 years ago, as I was getting ready to leave for freshman year at a very far away college. Obviously this was stressful - but most people assume that you're excited and thrilled. Even as a teenager I didn't want to admit that I was terrified and nervous about leaving family. I love being percieved as "independant" and being needy has never fit my self-perception.

    I remember thinking, "I guess I have fall allergies now" and I've had them ever since. They aren't dibilitating but they are annoying and they've gotten worse as I've aged.

    I'm working this program because of leg and butt pain. Many years ago, I read in one of Dr Sarno's books that allergies and skin conditions are part of TMS but those conditions are managable and have never been my focus.

    Shocked that these conditions have just resolved on their own as I start to be more emotionally aware.
    THANK YOU DR SARNO and everyone in this wonderful program!

    That's so neat. I too used to have terrible allergies, and when I think about it they were worse when I was struggling more in general in many areas. This year I barely notice them. Nice side effect ;)
