Sorry you don't believe me Deb. I'm not trying to make light of it. Aikido has always been natural to me. I have never hated to go or had to force myself to go. On the other, if life keeps me from it I get the opposite reaction-I get cranky. It's my catharsis in life. My place where when stressed it all goes away. I do not have bad feelings on the mat or want to avoid getting on the mat. How could I when I find aikido my learning environment and I like to learn. The only time I have ever wanted to not get on a mat was with a serious injury for fear that I might make it worse and be out longer. I just avoided letting anyone get near that wrist for a long time-it was a permanent injury.
