Day 9 was another step forward. Reviewing Alan Gordon's program on how to think about symptoms and their sources really helped; I expect to go back to that section again. I was able to have business meeting for several hours virtually symptom free. I drove symptom free. My evening was pretty good too. Sleep came easier. It didn't last long but I feel fine and remind myself that I can always take a nap if I needed. I can always find a way to be kind to myself BUT FIRST lets see if those fear voices about not getting enough sleep are right. Wow there are a lot of negative thoughts in my head! Just like with pain I'm taking Alan's advice to heart. When the pain comes up I'm talking to it but if it won't relent I tell to bring it on. I'm not scared I'm not intimidated. It might slow me down, I am human after all but it won't stop me or my recovery.
