Hey guys, I'm lucky I found this book and forum, it appears the chronic hand pain which I have been dealing with for weeks and was worried would ruin my life has "miraculously" cleared up after reading the book. However, in the interest of keeping it going and making sure the symptoms do not return or something else isn't substituted, I would still like to start putting the therapy portions of the treatment into practice. I am definitely a goodist, perfectionist and all that other fun stuff, as well as leading a stressful life. A former sufferer of depression, I have been actively suppressing my negative feelings under the assumption that it was healthy (compared to my previous behavior of getting stuck in negative thought loops for days on end, I suppose it was an improvement anyway). I realize it's okay to confront them now, as long as there is a method to the madness. I already meditate on a daily basis, so I will continue doing that. But there is a lot of other advice to implement. It seems like journaling is probably the other most important thing to do, but I'm not sure where to start. How often should I do it? How should I divide my attention between traumatic past events and things that are bothering me right now? I suppose I am over-thinking this a little, but any advice on journaling or other things to do would be very welcome. Thanks.
