Judith writes that the worst thing about her surgery wasn’t the fear or doubts; it was the isolation

Judith writes that the worst thing about her surgery wasn’t the fear or doubts; it was the isolation and loneliness she felt, and that guided imagery on her iPod was the perfect antidote..
Judith writes:
I just want to say that listening to the surgery imagery before surgery meant the world to me and not just because it lessened my fears and gave me hope for a positive outcome. I think the worst thing about surgery is how alone you feel. With you in my iPod, I really felt I had someone there with me. More than anything, that is the power of guided imagery!!!!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
