I think the reason is, because I have made a lot of progress, and I am feeling better than I have in many years. But, it is very discouraging when you think that maybe you can do something, after all this work, and you can't, without a flare up. It's very tempting to throw in the towel, and just say, "I quit". When I started this, I made a vow that would keep going, no matter what. I'm sticking to that, no matter how hard it may be at times.
2 1/2 years seems like a long time, but I guess since I've been dealing with this for more than 30 years, that's not even 10%, so maybe that's not so bad. I have to get my head back in the game and just keep pressing forward.
Coop - This is EXACTLY how I'm feeling tonight! Chugg'n along with PT #2 and strengthening and I KNEW better. I know what I can and can't do, but yet at this point, I let someone talk me into something I knew I shouldn't do.
Why am I STILL such a slow learner? Is it just because we want to expedite the process?
I know this will pass and I'll get back on track, but I'm more frustrated with myself for not saying NO!
You're doing great, so keep up the good work. Set-backs have ultimately led me to moving forward, so onward and upward we will go.
Let's kick some TOS aaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssssssssssss!
