Well after months of dragging my butt around and feeling like crap, weight gain, extremely low blood pressure, a serious bout of depression, lack of enthusiasm for life and only doing low intensity exercise – because anything vigorous really hasn’t been an option… I’ve finally have found a health-care provider with enough brain-cells to start seriously looking for the root of the problem.

Tapping into your creative powers to create fun games to play with friends, paint and draw pictures, make up fairytale stories, and all sorts of amazing things! Then…somewhere along the way, some big person squelched the juice out of our imagination and scolded us for using our creative powers.
Whether we were told to stop talking to our imaginary friends, paint the blue-bird BLUE instead of purple, or follow the rules instead of making up new ones. Something, or somebody stepped in and suggested that using our creativity wasn’t such a great idea. How sad…
