I had and appointment with my psychotherapist tonight and found myself getting anxious about his office. I started worrying about where I would sit and the aversion that I have developed against couches, especially since last time I went I sat on the couch and my back started stinging and tingling. I found myself struggling in my seat at work trying to wiggle my way out of going tonight, and found my back getting more tense as I thought about it more. . . then I thought psychological. I realized that I didn't want to go because last time I went I was stressed out and didn't speak my mind the whole time. I felt somewhat run over by questions because I had just wanted to revert back and not speak to anyone. I ended up going and went in with an attitude of saying what was on my mind. My best session yet. I clearly portrayed what I wanted to talk about, stress and anxiety of a couple situations in particular, and we talked through them. I even sat on the couch the whole time. My back has been tingling more the past couple days from pushing it, but I'm continuing to do more physical activity. I even slept on my side for the first time in 2 years without fear. In response to the day 3 SEP: I have been increasing my physical activity over the past month by doing elliptical, stretches, and a couple core exercises for thirty minutes every other day. I nearly cried due to fear in the doctor's office when he was pushing me to start exercising again. The past two times I have stepped up my elliptical even more, and I plan on doing the same tomorrow despite the tingling in my back.
