2-2: The battle plan – a quick overview of the strategy

Welcome to the premium content of Cure CPPS course! Today you begin training to knock down CPPS – and keep it down.

I’m going to use a lot of battle metaphors. That’s partly because I love them, but it’s also because there is no win/win outcome with CPPS. It’s winner take all – and you need to be the winner. CPPS is not a person, but a nasty circumstance, and smashing it is not only necessary – it’s an act of love toward yourself and the others who depend on you.

So imagine it this way. You’re locked in a struggle with CPPS, and it has you in its grasp. That’s a painful place to be.

How to win the fight with CPPS

To win any fight, you must adhere to two principles:

  1. Foreknowledge. You are ahead of your enemy in the decision making process. It’s not all about speed – it’s also about knowing what they can and can’t do, and what you can and can’t do.
  2. Distance management. You must maintain a distance from your enemy where you can hurt them, but they can’t significantly hurt you. Think of fighter jets, who swoop in and out faster than the speed of sound. Or think of the great boxers and MMA fighters, who stay out of reach until the perfect moment, then lay out their opponent with a calculated combination of blows, throws, and submissions. Both jets and great fighters are dominant because they manipulate distance to their advantage.

This course will provide you with:

  1. The foreknowledge and habits that let you get out from underneath CPPS
  2. A method to stay out of the way of its punches, and
  3. The means finally allow you to start hitting back – and making your life better.

Those three phases make up Units 2, 3, and 4.

Figuring out where you’re at in the battle

You must work through all of the lessons in all of Units 2-4 to achieve mastery over CPPS. But it’s good to understand what a normal progression of improvement looks like. Ideally, this will happen neatly over 6 months. But progress may vary.

CPPS Severity Quality of Life Chart

Hellish












  • Waves of intense pain throughout the day
  • Sitting or lying in some positions is impossible due to pain
  • Peeing 12-30 times/day
  • Climaxing feels like shooting napalm and then being hit below the belt with a 20 lb mallet
  • May not even be able to achieve erection
  • Lifting your legs up and moving them sideways nearly impossible
  • Cannot run without excruciating, incapacitating pain in your plumbing

Nasty











  • Waves of pain throughout the day, especially at predictably stressful moments
  • Sitting or lying in some positions is still very painful, and some are impossible
  • Peeing 8-25 times/day
  • Orgasms cause a burning sensation
  • Lifting your legs up and moving them sideways very difficult
  • Cannot run without excruciating pain in your plumbing

Unpleasant








  • Waves of pain at predictably stressful moments, and dull throbbing otherwise
  • Sitting or lying in some positions is uncomfortable
  • Peeing 8-15 times/day
  • Sex is mostly worthwhile again, but orgasm still burns
  • Can run but the pain comes on pretty fast

Subsiding






  • No ongoing pain
  • Small waves of pain at really stressful times, but rapidly subside
  • Can sit and lie in most positions again
  • Peeing 5-10 times/day, as a healthy person
  • Sex is good again
  • Can run for short bursts

Livable








  • No ongoing pain
  • Small waves of pain at really stressful times, but rapidly subside
  • Can sit and lie in all positions again
  • Peeing 5-10 times/day, as a healthy person
  • Sex is good again
  • Can run for a long time provided not stressed out or overtired

Victorious

  • No ongoing pain
  • Very rare twinges of pain that last 1-3 seconds
  • Can stretch, grapple, and move through any position
  • Peeing 5-10 times/day, as a healthy person
  • Sex is excellent, though you can never get enough #manproblems
  • Can sprint and train even when tired without any symptoms or pain

This is sort of a “results” progression. As you work through this course, you’ll move through each of these phases – hopefully at about a rate of one improved category per month.

YOUR MISSION:

Estimate which category you’re in. Don’t overthink it – just identify it as a starting point. Then go on to the next lesson.
