How am I doing after 25 days working the program? Well, ok. I still have symptoms. The last two weeks I have actually had an increase in symptoms. The big difference is that I am not worried because I know that it is not a physical/structural cause, so I am not reacting to the pain in an emotional way. This is a huge change for me. I note that I have pain, try to think psychological. I cannot always identify what is going on, but I know that it is not physical, so I don't worry. I try to just ignore the pain so as not to give it too much attention. I know that the healing process is slow, so I am learning to have patience. I don't expect a miracle recovery overnight just from reading Dr. Sarno's book. I am trying to embrace the recovery process and the healing process. I admit that I do get annoyed when the pain increases, just because it hurts or is uncomfortable. But I am so much better than I was 1 year ago, so I try to keep it in perspective. I am moving forward with my life and exercising. I have also carved out time every evening to work the program. I have enjoyed journaling for the first time in my life. I trust that I will continue to heal, and that one day I will be pain free. I am very grateful for having found this program and all the resources that go along with it. I have bought several books to supplement the SEP. I am learning alot. I appreciate everyone's support in this blog.
