I am now 16 days into the SEP and have had a bit of relief. Yesterday was a particularly hopeful day; today, the pain is back and spreading to other areas. It is almost as if my body is saying," You think you are out of the woods because you had one good day? I will show you who is boss!" Anyway, the journal assignment today is about the stress that may be causing this. I have only one main stressor in my life and have journaled on that several times over the past few weeks. I am at a loss as to find additional stressors than may be causing this pain. I know that the pain is disproportionate to the stress in my life, so I am wondering if anyone can share their journey with finding out what is causing the pain and where the stress really is? Am I just stuffing this down even further?
