I am also beginning again. I started 2 weeks ago and after finishing the book, stopping all physical therapies. My condition improved a lot. Until it got a lot worse at the beginning of week 2. The whole of week 1 I had a great week, I journaled every day and also did yoga every day. I had a different work week (I am a teacher) without my usual stresses and worries. I noticed how I could actually not think about pain and use the techniques. And then week 2 came and I couldn't do anything anymore. I did yoga once, I couldn't find the time to journal. In the weekend I was too tired from the week and felt really bad about not even feeling like doing the work, trying, moving my body. Although I wanted it so much. And the pain has gotten much worse. And I can't seem to get back to it anymore. Oh and at the beginning of week 1 I got an e-mail after months (and years from my whiplash accident) that I would receive 500$ for insurance. And then it's only gotten worse. I feel like I am beating myself up for not doing the work daily (my job takes so much of my energy -- teaching at a distance during a global pandemic) and like my mind wants to do it but my body needs to rest. And I don't know anymore where to start. Does anyone have any tips for this kind of a low period, pain getting worse after an initial improvement...?
