Get worse before better?

OK, so, an update.

The meditation is still going well, and I'm still feeling more generally positive and able to do things then before (though I have had several hideous nights and have been giving serious thought to taking a LOT of pills).

The mindful movement exercises are definitely having an effect, in the sense that the range of movement has increased. The downside seems to be that the surrounding musculature is obviously really weak, and so I'm actually getting more pain and am having to take more morphine than before. I just have to hope that if I keep going, the muscles etc will strengthen and the pain will reduce a bit.

The dislocating also seems better since the exercises. Now, rather than dislocating and then locking solid, it's cracking but keeping going.
