Woman who was introduced to guided imagery by Blue Shield is very happy

23 May
A Blue Shield of California member is elated over being given a pre-surgical guided imagery CD, claiming it propelled her into post-surgical super-stardom ..so much so that she crashed and burned..
Dear BR and Health Journeys,
No answer is necessary at all, but I just want to THANK you...I''m one of the lucky ones who received the pre- and post-surgery CD from Blue Shield of California....and this skeptic is a convert! I was a super-star after my total right knee replacement, was out of the hospital after only three days. I did crash and burn soon after that...my own fault...caught up in the euphoria of my own super-stardom, I stopped listening too soon. I came back to the guided imagery, and while I cannot say post-surgery was ever easy, the imagery helped me immeasurably!
Thank you, thank you!
