I admit I am making immense progress, but the two times the pain hass noticably reduced, it always comes back stronger than ever. I am almost losing the will to live, but I know this is the right way to go. I have been going to therapy most weeks of the last 6-7 months, except for the couple of weeks when my dad died in December. My anger is maybe at the condition that from the outset seemed to be simple and straightforward to 'fix' as I have a lot of anger towards my mother for my horrible childhood I had to endure. The two successes I have had involved talking about how angry I was about her bullying me for most of the last 30 years (I recently turned 38). I had another minor success last night after writing some short words about various things, although I don't know for sure which bit actually did the trick. My problem is that I can get the pain to reduce, but it always comes back within a few hours. Could it be that I am simply angry at the complexity of the condition?? Surely not.
