It's taken me several days to move from Day 4 to Day 5 but I'm trying not to beat myself up over it. My pain has lessened in that time, but I'm not going to stop the work. Today was my first day of delving into a painful memory from the past and it only took about five minutes of freewriting to open the floodgates. I have an appointment with my therapist later today — I only see her about once a month and she doesn't know I'm doing this program, or about the flare up in pain. It will be interesting to see what she thinks. I like how today balances the hard work of dealing with some painful feelings with making a plan to do something good for myself. Tomorrow I plan to sit outside and read during my lunch hour, something I never do. Have a good Sunday, all.
