    The saying goes "if you pray for patience God will give you things that require patience." I guess I'm impatiently waiting for patience.

    May I suggest some Norman Vincent Peale for further inspiration?

    Take a deep breath and celebrate your progress.
    Consider how impossible your current line of deads was before you started.
    You have muscle memory and mental training that will bring things back more quickly this time.
    There is wisdom in gratitude.

    Your correction is much appreciated. I am grateful that I can lift at all. God is good.
