Yeah, the Doidge books on the brain are really great. I finally finished "The Brain that Changes Itself." He has that bit about stroke patients in it as well. There's also a chapter on fetishes, video game, and PMO. I read that bit before finding this forum. It's good to learn people have been successful, but it seems far more impactful to come here and talk to you all than read it in some distant book. @Saville, your experiment with you knees is a great one. I often cation others and myself on language because it's powerful. I too have some unneeded weight and bad knees. It sort of hit me hard when you said you had written your knees off. I have done that too. It is probably time to stop feeding myself that language and try a new diet of "Yes I can."
