I am hopeful that as I continue to write in my journal more of my symptoms will improve. I was excited that after reading Dr. sarno' book I found relief from one chronic issue. However, my other symptoms remain unchanged. I know it is a process, but I was hoping to find quicker resolution of my insomnia and GI issues. The journaling is difficult for me. I am so used to hiding my emotions that it's hard for me to connect with them now. I will try to make it a habit to write in my journal because I know there are so many benefits from writing out my feelings regarding different stressors from the past and present.
