Today I went to the gym for water aerobics, something I haven't done in several weeks. I had started going originally because I thought it was good for my back but it's a lot more fun than I expected. No one can see how un-coordinated I am like regular aerobics. and it's a good work out. I also went to get a haircut, and my stylist asked how my back was, and I said, better. and then we moved on. The shortest conversation about my pain in 6 months! I read dr. sarno's book sunday and saw myself all over. while i'm starting to feel better, I am not sleeping well at all. normally i might have one sleepless night but i'm up to 3 in a row, and i'm exhausted. My husband has been out of town all week and I am a bit afraid of telling him about this - luckily so far he's been too busy to talk on the phone so I've avoided it. He comes home Friday so I am wondering how he will take it.
