  •  Thank you, Betty! And thanks for sharing (6+ / 0-)

    your rituals, too.
    I find them all rather endearing, yours and the others people have shared tonight. Humans are kind of sweet when they have a chance to be so.
    I don't have a port either. I now routinely request the man in the blood draw lab who is one of the best phlebotomists I've ever encountered.
    Meditation and guided imagery are very powerful tools. I might have included them here but I guess I give them a lot of credit already; I don't think of them as "alternative."

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

      my form of "self-prayer." But it's true, I don't think of it as an alternative treatment, just as a key component of pursuing health.
