Much of the chronic and recurrent pain and discomfort that we all experience is psychologically induced. This psychologically induced pain is called TMS, or The Mindbody Syndrome. TMS most commonly affects the back, neck, and legs, but can affect any part of the body or organ system. Some common TMS disorders include headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, dyspepsia, gastroesophageal reflux disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), and fibromyalgia. Using today's popular lingo, TMS is a mindbody disorder – the symptoms arise from the mind and are experienced by the body. Thus, The Mindbody Syndromeis an appropriate title. With the information in this book, I am optimistic that you will be able to eliminate your pain, no matter where it is. You will do this with knowledge. Simply by changing how you think about the connection between your brain and body, you will begin to feel better. I will not be recommending oral medication, special exercises, surgery, injections, physical therapy, chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture, massage therapy or any other of the multitude of alternative therapies that have sprung up in an effort to combat the explosion of chronic and recurrent pain in our society. Just knowledge.

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Cologne, course: Postmodern American short stories, 5 Literaturquellen entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In his famous soliloquy of Act III, Scene 1, of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet, prince of Denmark, reveals his inner struggles and his search for identity and meaning. Confronted with and utterly disturbed by family and political problems concerning the crown of Denmark, questions, believes, social conventions and personal convictions are pressing hard on him and leave him searching for meaning and identity, trying to find for the right way through and the right way out. To be, or not to be, that is the question - whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles,”. (III,1) The question of “to be or not to be”, which is in essence the question of identity, is a widely discussed and fundamental theme of life, a topic many authors have written about and many producers have made the central theme of Hollywood movies. The purpose of this essay is to discuss question of identity in postmodern American short stories. It will include a presentation of postmodernism in its contrast to modernism. Three short stories from different American authors will be discussed in regard to conflicts and development of identity: "Lost in the funhouse" by John Barth, "Saint Marie" taken from Louise Erdrichs "Love medicine" and "A Wife's Story" by Bharati Mukherjee. Special attention will be paid to the story of initiation.
