What I find especially tricky when things are going well is dealing with the "high" that comes with that. Not only is there more energy but just seeing how one actually has a certain level of power over his life is daunting in some ways. There is also the thought of "wow, things are actually getting better" that can produce all sorts of strong emotions as well. Getting adjusted to this is tricky and sometimes it's hard not to push oneself too much or become overwhelmed when this starts happening. Basically it's important to stay calm even when things do seem to improve, but it's not always easy. Sometimes, in my case, when things seem to get going in the right direction I can sometimes get a special type of anxiety that gets close to panic attacks. It's like reality becomes a bit too intense.
