I was doing so well. I spent most of my vacation week pain-free, feeling good about making such great progress. When I returned, so did my pain. I understand it. I know whats going on in my brain and what might be going on in my subconscious. I've been trying to ignore the pain. I've been journaling. I know this too shall pass, but right now, it is really really difficult to ignore the pain. Neon lights are flashing in my butt cheeks. I think I could really use some words of encouragement at this time. I know many of you have gone thru this and come out the other end. Give me a cheer, please.
