Jaimy shares this great patient story:
My patient with a (undiagnosed)functional gait disorder gave me this medal. She was a runner prior to fnd and since treatment she has run her 1st half marathon and some 5ks. It has been 6 years since she could run a race. She gave me the participation medal because I was an equal participant in her run
I was there with her she says. She was able to get a 3rd place We need these reminders. I will keep this medal close.
Today I had a major breakthrough with a patient when screen sharing with them the "River Runneth Over" resource you all have shared with me. After watching you and your staff explain it many times via many video lectures and Zoom meetings, I felt confident enough to break it out today. The result- a major breakthrough and discovery of significant past pain and trauma in a patient of mine which will certainly allow us to make meaningful steps forward. A door open for healing that had been sealed shut.
Sometimes with seeing the complex clients you can feel burned out or overwhelmed and you don’t know what to do. Having a group like this, it's so encouraging, so motivating, building that creativity connection…that keeps me going. I really like this community, it’s so empowering. I am so thankful. During this pandemic time everything is different, plans are presenting differently, things are changing around, and how to keep yourself going, how to perform well, the pressure around. Having you guys makes a big difference.
