    When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why?

    I actually am able to be very active. I go for hikes, and I play around in the park. I'll do some stretching and some yoga. But I only do exercises that I enjoy and make me happy. I've stopped doing anything that relates to rehab or physical therapy because that feels like work and I didn't find it improved my pain.

    On the days I do get to move I tend to feel better. Right now what gets me stuck is when I'm not able to move around. Those days the pain is worse, and I wish it would go away more. I feel like I'm not able to detach from wanting the pain to go away. I'm not being a non-judgmental observer of my pain

    There's nothing wrong with wanting the pain gone... Hell, we all came here wanting the pain gone, right? I don't think I ever be came a non-judgemental observer and my pain left anyways... I worked hardest on 'turning my brain to a persistent source of irritation like finances or a family problem ' which is at the core of the recovery... disabling the loop by taking it's 'job' away.

    I guarantee you, if you keep upping the activity and making plans, you're gonna get better fast.
