So, today's journal task was to ask about any improvements that have arisen from the programme. Well, the pain is way, way down...now just a minor dull ache in the back. I can sit up all day, I am walking, and I have had nearly a week of good sleep without waking up in pain, and lack of anxiety attacks. I'm not done yet certainly...I want that dull ache to cease and desist! But a huge, huge difference. I am confident now that I will be healed completely soon...not putting pressure on myself, but things are on the upswing. As far as personality improvements, I certainly am becoming more aware of what a people-pleaser I have been, and frankly, how I let work take over everything. As I don't start teaching until late September, I am relearning what it means to have leisure time and even to have fun...I never let myself have a lot of down time before. Work was just filling empty space in my life I also am counting blessings...I think I have the most wonderful husband in the world who stuck with me through all this, and I finally let myself be taken care of. That was huge for me.
