I understand the distinction very differently.

Two advices out of my experience, sadly in the negative part.
When you pass 90 or even 100, be sure to build your life meanwhile.

You need a reason to live, and goals that on day to day basis keep you forward.

I lasted 100 days with a mixture of extreme fear, prayer, donations to gye, and overall involvement in high level (for me) Torah.

When I fall I remember that I had not build my life along the way.
I also realised that after falling, I just could have ignored this fall and kept my good attitude. Certainly just one fall after 100 days does not destroy your recovery, if you make sure that this is a one time off.

So build your life, and if you were ever fall, be sure it is a one-two time only and very sparse in between.

Also, you will feel you are more sensible to social situations. That will be normal too, because now you do not scape from reality. Get used to it. I guess you simply will need to learn new skills.
