    Hi Sadm3. Writing down your memoirs of the journey is a great idea. Make it something of the past, over and done with successfully the first time without having to do it again. Ensure you won't relapse by continuing to visit this site on a regular basis as a reminder as well. I am glad to hear that things are gradually getting better for you. As to the sneezing I wanted to relay how I was outside last week and had a sneezing fit. I did not have allergies that I know of, but now I wonder.
    Think positive and embrace the journey, it does get easier as you go and believe and desire.
