Today, I ran my first "Wellness" therapy group, and it was a major hit! One of the harshest critics and toughest to please of the clients exclaimed with glee, "You're not boring! This was actually interesting!" Woohoo! I focused on "food and mood," highlighting how certain foods dictate serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and endorphin levels... remember, I'm working with the mentally ill and chemically addicted. At first, it seemed like abstract ideas to them, until, I explained what food has done for me and my illness. They were sold.
Tomorrow is my "off day," but I will spend it at the dermatologist (this immune suppressant is causing my otherwise perfect skin to freak!), with the baby and Pat, doing work, and getting a massage in the evening.
In the meantime, enjoy some cute pics!
