Lately: Just enough progress

There's a pattern in coping with this injury. The pattern is this: I have some progress which slowly decreases and as it decreases I briefly lose faith. Somehow after each of these brief periods of hopelessness signs of improvement spring up and the cycle starts it self all over again.

I've been aware of this cycle since December, but each time my ankle gets sore it still gets to me. One of the things I've been working on the last 6 months is a general control of my own mind. The ability to focus, enforce self control, and be present are my main priorities. There's that, and having control of my own life, which should lead towards happiness.
