I've been a big fan of Alan Gordon's stuff for a long time, so I was really excited to see the recovery program he put up. Looking at the program, it's clear that while it provides a roadmap, only I can do the actual work. Basically, I'm going to get out of it what I put into it. I really want to put a lot into it, because I've been suffering for a long time. My TMS is mostly under control, but the symptom imperative keeps hitting me, so I know that there are some deeper issues that I need to work on. I want to work on these not just for symptom relief, but also as a gift to myself. I've read the program a couple of times and listened to all of the audio, but, given how long real change can take, I know I'm going to have to keep working the program for years. The problem is that I've got so much else going on that it is extremely easy to get distracted. However, I've noticed that hard things are always easier when there are friends involved, so I started this thread to help keep me focused. My hope is that just as the recordings of sessions in the program are crucial for adding meat to the bones of the program, maybe reading my struggles will help others better understand their own paths. As for myself, I've done a lot of depth therapy and a lot of introspection over the years, so I feel that I've analyzed the heck out of myself. I feel like a program like this (combined with hard work and patience) is exactly what I need to pull it all together and effect change. We'll see. I'm going to do my best to post something brief every 2-3 days. That's all for now.
