It was so difficult to recognize the difference between solid progress where I could take the next step toward recovery and a good day which needed to be repeated at the same level for a while. Of course my hope and emotions were almost always in the ‘this is it’ camp. Unfortunately, most of the time I needed to stay where I was and follow the protocol until this new level of health was consistently repeated. In the beginning, I jumped forward and was almost always rewarded with a set back. Some more severe than others. But over time, I finally began to listen to my body’s call for restraint and to review my daily log for patterns that pointed to whether or not I was ready.
I admit that it took a strong hold on the reins at times when I really wanted to unleash a cantor. Do you struggle with pacing? How do you deal with miss queue days?
