How often do we reflect upon what may happen in the future as a result of the treatment we presently receive? How much do we know about the long term effects of Botox type B treatment? Questioning our decisions and thinking about possible outcomes in relation to our choices are natural thought processes. Mostly, we have little resistance to challenging thoughts creeping into our mind during those quiet, reflective moments in time. These thoughts are sometimes intuitive, defensive, confusing.
All the above mentioned thought processes lead us toward making informed decisions about health, relationships, quality of life. Together with these cognitive functions we apply trust, enabling us to be absorbed by that welcoming aura intertwining hope and faith. We feel safe, surrounded by reassurance.
Are we prepared to expose our vulnerability by asking our treating specialist’s opinion on something we have read or heard? My personal experience is the more questions I can think of asking during treatment appointments, the more I learn from the answers I receive.
Someone brought to my notice a very interesting brief communication about an article thus leading me off on a train of thought resulting in a list of questions to ask when I go for treatment next week in Brisbane. To that person, I say thank you. Please, follow the link in this paragraph; think for yourself about what the outcome of research does for us. How we are part of the answers to questions being asked in searching for a cure for the different kinds of dystonia. As individuals, we are not alone. We are members of a global team moving forward together, supporting each other along a road of discovery, a future of hope and promise, for ourselves and those who come after us.
Please, leave a comment if you are comfortable doing so. I will get back to you. Wherever you are, have a great day.
