    Todays activity is to write about my journey so far from the educational program. SO far I have been journalling, saying a mantra to my brain as much as I can during the day, uncovering some key areas that I need to focus on emotionally. Accepting where I am at physically and changing the way I treat and talk to myself. I am a perfectionist and very driven. This condition has made me feel powerless and I can be hard on myself. I completely accept the diagnosis. I am in pain all day everyday and it is very restrictive. So far I have not had any pain relief. I am following the program and identifying patterns in my pain cycle and thought process. Also trying to uncover key emotional events that led to this. I have read the MB prescription twice and have started on the great pain deception. My biggest apprehension is if this will work for me. I know it works for many but so far not a lot has changed despite the work I am putting in. I have had chronic pain for 14 years so I am not putting a time frame on my recovery however it would be nice to get just a 5% reduction in pain. At the moment I am just accepting it is what it is for now.
