During a recent doctor's office visit, my usually normal blood pressure was abnormally high. The nurse was very concerned, and I asked her to give me few minutes and take it again. I realized that my stress level was very high due the chemotherapy that I was scheduled for right after that. I closed my eyes and using the techniques you taught me I could feel my body going into an immediate state of calm. The nurse took the blood pressure reading again 10 minutes later and it was down and amazing 34 points!
She could not believe the difference and called another nurse to see the results.
I have used these amazing techniques before surgery and when I was in any kind of discomfort. These simple steps have enhanced my life and made me feel that I do have control over my body."
Yesterday, I went into a marathon 7-hour chemo session armed with the behavioral instructions you gave me. I woke up today (the day that they said would be very hard and lots of nausea) and I felt great! I bounced out of bed, ran the dishwasher and washing machine, folded laundry, made myself a good breakfast, returned many long-overdue phone calls and settled here in front of computer to catch up on email.
You need to bottle this stuff! Thank you so much!
