I haven't posted for a while because I'm not making progress. I have been working through the Structured Educational Program, reading the daily educational program and writing my responses to the Journaling and Question to Ponder exercises. I'm losing faith in the diagnosis, or at least its applicability to me. I would much rather be making progress like the people in the success stories I've been reading. I can see myself in some of the personality characteristics. I have stressors in my life that coincide with the pain, but I'm not thoroughly convinced they cause the pain. The pain really scares me.
