As some of you may know today was my first day at the Mayo clinic’s “Pain Rehabilitation Center”. I am still going through orientation and will officially start the program on Wednesday but have already met with most of my care team. Today we evaluated what health, social, emotional, and mental concerns I had and what I would like to focus on. I also had my first biofeedback session today and am practicing some of the relaxation and breathing techniques they showed me today. I met and spoke with a lot of the people on ‘Team 2’ which will be the team I start working with on Wednesday, they were all very friendly and had advice to help with the program. It was determined that I am the youngest patient on Team 2 by 10 years, I feel like an [awesome] anomaly 🙂 After speaking with my care coordinator at length today I am even more excited for this program! I really look forward to making as much progress as possible in order to improve my quality of life. I [hopefully] will be updating on the program every other day. So excited for what has yet to come!
In unrelated news I am all done with the semester and seem to have made decent grades. I FINALLY have in state tuition and am returning to full time this summer.
