Barbara, It definitely takes time, patience and perseverance. Please, make sure you are kind and loving to yourself, also. I would read about individuals whose symptoms left right after they read the book and that would so frustrate me. I could not figure out what I was doing wrong. Once I gave up putting pressure on myself and trying to control my thinking about it by getting back into life I started to see some progress. It just takes time. What I did that was helpful was everything I read I kept some notes that jumped out of the page at me. Whether it was reading someone's success story or from a book I was reading... Then, I would keep reviewing the notes to get it deep in me. I am presently going to read this article of Alan Gordan several times a day, just to keep reminding me. This whole article really was so encouraging to me. I am so happy you read it and you will do it. You will see. It took me several months to see any progress. Now, it is getting better. There may be some days that I feel am I going backwards but then I take hold of that thought and say no I am going forward. And then I am pleasantly surprised I have a breakthrough. You are going to do great. G.R.
