I am doing well overall. My pain is consistently and mostly lowered or gone. Each time it flares I am mostly able to banish it, sometimes it can take longer - but I found even with a persistent back pain that came (echoing a bad back I had years ago) once I found the emotional cause it went! My apprehensions are that I cannot quite see how I can deal with all the negative emotions without repressing. How do I deal with family members that create resentment/anger/anxiety without actually shouting/dumping anger on them. It just is not possible with the present dynamics of the family (My mother is elderly/my father is dead) I need to rid myself of the toxicity of the emotions without confronting those I love? My husband is great - I can confront him about anything, and he's happy to have me vent about others. Journalling is great but I cannot just sit and write ALL the time - any suggestions??
