I did some exercise yesterday for the first time in months. I am very conditioned that I will hurt myself every time I exercise or do any stretches, so I often get a flare up after every time I do anything physical. Strangely (or not so strangely) if I am just kind of active with my family I don't. 3-4 weeks ago I walked for hours with my son at Six Flags, but I haven't been able to do one set of stretches for months without sparking pain. Go figure! I think the challenge is I really want to change my life and go back to activity. I believe that I can and I start to do the things that in the past, knowing that I can't hurt myself because the problem isn't physical. It starts to work, and then I get one twinge of doubt and it flares up. I am like Luke Skywalker trying to lift the ship out of the swamp. Or Peter trying to walk on the water.
