Are you having success at recognizing the emotions connected to your pain? I'd say I'm struggling with this one a bit. A few months back when things really started to improve I could I see that my pain would correlate with my stress levels. Now, it just feels like things come and go randomly. I'll have a few great days and then a day where I just wake up and it's there most of the day - at least it's been minor so still excited about the improvement. I did an 8 mile hike on Saturday and Thursday/Friday I felt great and then come Saturday morning I woke up and could tell it would be an on and off day. I'm not sure If I was just excited or if I was a bit more nervous than I thought. Either way, it was a great day and that's what I'm trying to focus on. One day at a time. I'm working on doing a few emotional check ins each day and those are harder than I would have thought. I really have to search for how I'm feeling or I'll just tell myself "I'm alright" and move on. I find most days that I don't really "feel" much and that it's just a normal day. So definitely some work to do there as I try to let myself feel more.
