Hope I haven't been posting too often on here, but it does help me cope with things. I've been having a lot of success with the program; I'm on day 14 now, this is supposed to be my day off, but the pain is bothering me too bad for it to be a day off. It's mostly my mid-back at this point. Since I started the program on this site I've been doing a lot better. There have even been a few days when I wasn't in pain. I was waking up with pain every morning, and that hasn't been happening as often. Even so, physical activity brings on the pain without fail and it's getting old. Walking, standing, working typically bring on the pain quite quickly. I've been going for walks every day now, but every day my back gets sore. Sometimes it goes away as soon as I finish and relax. Other times it naggingly refuses to leave. And today is one of those days. Probably because I went for a longer walk than usual, did a little jogging, and did some cleaning. Driving brings on the pain too and I did that today. I'm doing what I'm supposed to by keeping up the physical activity, but my mind doesn't want to let go. What's going on? Is it because I'm still harboring repressed emotions? Also, should I really push myself physically, like if the pain comes on when I'm walking should I turn around and go home, or should I try to keep walking until the pain goes away? Should I take a week or two and stop going for these daily walks, or would that be giving into the pain? Should I let myself relax once the pain comes on, or should I do other things like clean, etc.? I have been doing well about not getting myself worried and concerned about the pain, and since then I've been doing a lot better. But today I had an anxious episode for the first time in awhile, so I'm having a hard time not worrying about it.
