I'm definitely guilty of seeking quick reassurance, but you're right, it's not helpful in the long run. Most of getting better is about will power, and seeing that it works for others is a big help in finding your own will power.
I certainly didn't feel like doing any kind of yoga when I started; I was scared, I was sore, etc. But I found the easiest one I could, with basic moves that involve lying down, and felt immediately better. Not right away, but certainly the next morning.
Plus, I like to read threads on here and offer help where I can and engage, but some nights I just don't think it's wise for me to read threads that include a lot of symptoms, because that'll just fire up my anxiety.
