    It´s been more than 5 days since last work day in the program for me, but right now that is fine.

    I have had 5 days in a row now with more or less 0% pain. I still have some other minor symptoms when I´m stressed or nervous in everyday life, but it doesn't bother me right now since the improvement is so significant. I have faith in myself that these will improve.

    And it´s not like my life has been any easier these days, it´s how I handle it:

    - How I treat myself in my mind
    - How I sooth myself when I´m scared/nervous or similar
    - How I tell my self my emotions are completely normal part of being alive
    - How I identify more as an emotional person rather than a performing person (and now I actually get more things done!).
    - How I sense the beginning of symptom recurrence very fast and go back to emotional focus to make it go away.
    - If needed, I vent right away to another person for emotional support instead of thinking for myself several days.

    The more I tell myself that my emotions (mainly rage, sadness and fear) are normal and safe, the less need of strong external expression of them I have. So there you go.

    So far this week I have felt joy in every part of life: Work, cooking, child care etc.
