    Great post! You can meet those dates to do those activities again (but even if you don't, it's not a huge deal). Whether they go perfectly smoothly or result in some symptoms does not matter. There are no deadlines to getting better. The most important thing is losing your fear of doing these things. If you stick with the treatment, that should come in time.
