Stella mentioned 'fear' in her response to my post from Day 1 and I have just finished reading the article recommended for Day 2, based on Dr Sarno's work which discusses how we avoid activities because of the 'fear' of pain and discomfort. I just needed to say that I am a keen long distance walker and struggle to walk a mere 3 miles at a time because of the numbness down my leg. I started this programme yesterday and felt so positive that I actually seemed to walk much more comfortably. Having said that, I am afraid to attempt anything further than 3 miles because I am convinced I will struggle to make the distance. I feel frustrated and depressed and I have to get my life back so am commited to this programme.
