just checking in with everybody… still dealing with physical pain and my emotional pain comes and goes.. I can usually get it stuffed back in before I react too bad… Trying to get into a grief coping group, but that would mean I'd have to travel 2 hours 2 x a week as I"m already in another group for DBT. Not sure I can do it.. but I think I need it.. Other deaths are popping up now that I thought I had dealt with i the past with EMDR. Still have not mourned my mother. But,, I have been behaving..ha…. thanks..t

@mcmurf2 So glad you checked back in! Getting out of our own way is often difficult, but the results can be so worth it. Some people can be satisfied with writing or with computer interface, some people need the energy of face to face. And often it's just a mix of what works for you. I really like the idea @hopeful33250 put out about the cards. If you do that make sure you date them and even a little bit more like where you were when you wrote the card or your mood. We hope that you will keep checking back with us and let us know how you are doing. Remember that each day is a new beginning in recovery from anyting, be it grief or substance abuse or dealing with physical issues. We care here at Mayo Connect.
