I saw Grace tonight.
I actually sat through a green light on my way over there I was so tired. Pre-baby, I liked later appointments because it meant that I could get Ruby to bed (or at least through dinner and into the bath) before I went. Now, I want to actually be in bed by 8PM so that I can take the wake-ups every few hours and still function, drool-free, the next day.
I always feel better after I go. It’s probably akin to exercise like that. I don’t dislike anything about the process, except getting there. Keeping clothes on once I get home, and knowing that I need to head back out. Taking family time away from family. Spending the money and then filing the paperwork with the insurance company. On and on and on.
BUT. I highly recommend it if you are blue. Lonesome. Confused. Scared. Stressed out. If you need medication or just someone to talk to. It’s an amazing thing just to get your feelings mirrored back to you. To be heard. To be educated about the brain and the heart.
My brain and heart are better as I head into tomorrow.
If you can afford it — the time, the expense — find a practitioner that is recommended by someone you respect (and if you’re in DC, I can hook you into an extensive healing network) and GO.
