My assignment today is to post something I've done recently that I'm proud of. I choose to celebrate a recent conflict I had with some friends wherein I used the things I've learned in this program to deal with the post traumatic stress from the past that was being stimulated by a different person in the present. I was honest about my situation without expecting anyone else to fix it for me. The outcome was very good, and I am feeling very relieved and relaxed as a result. So far I cannot say that this program has had any result in lessening of pain or symptoms for me. I can only say that it is relieving my mind to journal about my stresses, and it has been interesting to see how stuff from the past comes out in the present. But I've always known that my pain was psychosomatic, and knowing that has never helped me get rid of it, and that has not changed in the last 19 days.
