I've had a number of positive changes in my life since I've started the program. One thing I'm noticing is that I'm learning not to panic when I have a relapse of pain or fatigue. It's tempting to think, "Oh no, I've failed!" or "What if it never goes away?!" but I'm learning to take it in my stride. I have found in the last couple of days I've had some TMS pain in my neck and shoulder which I haven't been able to budge. Yet I feel more confident now that I can find the root cause, "talk to the pain" and overcome it with time. I'm also learning not to fixate so much on the pain, so that it doesn't end up controlling my life. I'm getting past the catastrophic, "all or nothing" thinking which says, "If the pain is back then you haven't made any real progress". I know that's a lie, and that I have made a LOT of real progress. I know that I will continue to get better and that I will completely heal in time. I just want to encourage all those who are experiencing relapses not to give up! It often feels like 'one step forward, two steps back' yet I am moving forward.
