Today I wrote my unsent letter. Didn't take long. I wrote a letter to a sister that broke up our family over her greed. In the morning I went for a long ride in the car to a small town to do some antique shopping. I sat for an hour there and an hour back. I did need to a pain pill, but the good news is I wasn't able to sit that long in a very long time even with pain meds and I did it. Most of my pain is still in my hips, lower back and feet. I managed and had some fun. I continue to read John Sarno's books, SteveO's and continue with the structured program by Alan. I also read success stories and watch videos, meditate at night and use controlled breathing when I feel stressed. I am having pain, but at least my activities have increased and I am working on ignoring it and the fear of pain. Comments apreciated.
