My pain is still there. But I'm starting to dwell on it less. I'm starting to adapt the attitude that I should not focus on it. I'm spending more time working on this program instead of thinking about my pain and browsing the internet for physical solves. I definitely feel like I'm unearthing interesting emotional material. And I've become more fearless in my exercising. Last time I went through back pain the relief was practically immediate, and I didn't have to work too hard at it. So this time I'm still feeling frustrated that it's taking so much more time to contend with and my pain is barely subsiding. True to TMS-form, I'm upset with myself for being too slow at this recovery. I'm trying to remember to lighten up and take it slow. In fact, beyond this recovery, I've been trying to lighten up and take everything a little slower in my life. Because I'm always in overdrive and I'm way too hard on myself. It's starting to work. I'm catching myself in different ways throughout the day and challenging myself to slow down and ease up. Learning to stop focusing on the pain is hard. I have to contend with it throughout the day. I am hoping that if I keep practicing consciously, eventually it'll sink down into my subconscious.
