Recall Jodi’s experience

Jodi: She looked at me with a stern face, looking into my eyes, she said “you are too stressed, your body needs to get strong, you must take away the stress. Your body can not work with all that stress”.  

Shocked at her directness, I smiled and said I am not stressed, she ignored my words and began placing small acupuncture needles in various places on my body, then said “you lay there and relax”. 

Jodi’s experience – Consider Jodi’s experience and the stress cycle. Capture what stands out, what might relate.

I lay there for what felt like hours, feeling the tears, taking deep breaths, I thought to myself – I don’t know how to relax, I just don’t know.
