So, for the last week of the programme, I did not do everything in it, but I did do affirmations after reading Louise Hay which helped me enormously. I would say that I am about 95% healed. I still get some mild burning in my back sometimes, and sitting late at night makes my sides a bit sore, but I am getting better and better every day. This is a huge improvement, and I am really grateful to be back in the swing of life. I am going to continue with the Louise Hay programme, particularly as I'm getting back into the term in a couple of weeks, and I need those affirmations to deal with the job stress. However, I am seriously contemplating changing the terms of my job after this year so I have more time to just enjoy life. I'm finding I am more able to let go of the workaholism, and the awful sadness that I was trying to suppress, and for that I am really grateful. I expect that I'll be fully healed very soon. Most of all, I want to thank everyone here on the forum, particularly Walt, who offered comments and support. It carried me through some pretty dark days. I suppose now I am learning how to be happy and content and to watch out for my self more. Thanks again.
