I'm doing well, thanks. (The "story" is posted on the thread "Hey WDC" started by MOB1123 if you want the details). I really don't know where the balance is between just quitting the meds and tapering off them while trying to control the reflux using mindbody techniques. You say, "I know that's part of the treatment" (going cold turkey), but I'm not so sure it has to be. For you, maybe slowing going off the meds as you feel more confident about controlling the reflux is a better balance. I have never had the heartburny, esophageal symptoms, but I can tell from your posts and others that it's nothing to toy with. For me, my "bad" symptoms, such as not being able to breath, had already subsided. When I started trying the mindbody stuff I was already off prilosec, and my main symptoms were still lots of coughing and choking when I took a deep breath, yawned, laughed, etc., in addition to the constant lump in my throat and occasional voice loss. I still feel the lump occasionally, but everything else is gone.
On Dr. Sarno's website there's a list of doctors who practice his theories. There aren't a lot, but maybe there's one near enough to you that you could check it out if interested. Otherwise, I'm really liking the CD I've been using - it's main focus is making you "present" to the emotions you're feeling, rather than suppressing them. Probably not a bad idea in general! The link for this is on the "Hey WDC" thread, too.
I know how you're struggling, and, as we all have said, you have to go with your own instincts about will help you. I think keeping as calm as possible helps, and worrying about the pain of completely dropping your meds before you're ready will not make you calm. I'm guessing it's okay to work at it gradually.
Do let me know how you're doing. I am hoping for the best for you.
