5.0 out of 5 stars Sarno changed my life and my wife's, 30 July 2011
This review is from: The Divided Mind: The Epidemic of Mindbody Disorders (Paperback)
Both my wife and I suffered acute and chronic RSI, which then developed into back and neck ache for several months.
The condition was highly debilitating and our lives were becoming increasingly hard. Day after day work became more difficult (as we weren't even able to check our emails without suffering) and opportunities for leisure diminished (as playing sports was out of question and holding a book unthinkable)

It was pure coincidence that we met someone who had read Sarno's book(s), which brought us back to our old lives in a matter of days.

We were the typical "well-meaning" and well-behaved (Still are) young couple who found it too easy to repress their own anger when faced with frustration and pressure.
We found it hard to understand what repressed anger was, as we thought we were mature people who could deal perfectly with the difficulties and pressures of our family and work commitment! Luckily we were open enough to start reflecting on Sarno's words and talking out the frustrations our works had put on us.

For a few days (10) we discussed openly about what was bothering us, the people we would have happily kicked in their faces, and the anger we were feeling so strongly yet so secretly. Day after day, as we accepted our anger we felt better and we were able to go back to our lifestyle. Since then we have only experienced very occasional back pain and dealt with it reflecting on our emotions.

We have read all Sarno's books and firmly believe that we have learnt one of the most important lessons of our lives. One to pass on to everyone.

We highly recommend this (and all his other) book.
