I've been exercising quite a bit lately, as I've taken my housemate's dogs for walks nearly every day. I took the dog for a longer walk by the local lake today, which was really nice. I've also been thinking of doing some more swimming or even an aqua aerobics class. One breakthrough I had recently is that a friend gave me a car as a gift, so I renewed my licence - as I hadn't been driving for over two years due to the neuropathic pain. (The previous car I had was a really old manual car and my nerve pain attacks were so severe, it became unsafe to drive.) Anyway, this car is an automatic and I have been able to drive it mostly pain free, which has been wonderful!! Today I also did some journalling about my relationships with my father and stepfather. I realised that last time I did the SEP I focused more on other relationships, including my mother and stepmother, as I experienced more emotional abuse from them. However, I have come to realise that my father and stepfather were actually passive and enabled the emotional abuse… so I need to work through that too. I've been feeling better than usual in the last week, so I'm quite encouraged!
