Hello everyone, I am on day 19, and the question to ponder is about whether I have done something to make myself proud. The answer is yes. I have cut back my pain medication and while I still take it, I don't take it nearly as much. This makes me very proud because I know I not only did it through using the concepts of the program, I am further convinced that this is indeed TMS and will get completely well in time. It is difficult to have patience and I am like everyone starting out, good days and bad days. I wish I would have been one of those who had a very quick recovery, but regardless I will recover. I am taking stock of what is going on in my body a lot more and speaking up to that inner bully! I'm also acknowledging myself for the fact that I am worthy of love regardless of any external things I may do or accomplishments, my looks, my age, my mate, whatever. I am a human being and uniquely created by God. That is all I need to be worthy of unconditional love. I realized the bully had been beating my mind up and thus beating me up for far too long. Taking control of the situation through self-awareness is where it's at for me, and not internalizing the pressure thoughts as my own but as my inner bully that I am sure my mind has the power over. So with that being said, I intend to do yoga tomorrow with my shoulder doing whatever its going to do. Because it is just coming from that inner bully and in the end, he is just smoke and mirrors.
