Mindfulness sounded like an intriguing way to further my self-imposed regimen of self-care. I found Aura at the exact same time I found myself having suicidal thoughts stemming from the aftermath of my massive stroke event. I sought out therapy then, and discovered Aura quite by accident, while exploring my iPhone’s health app.
Never one for holistic healthcare or “touchy-feely” things like meditation, I decided to broaden my mind a bit and gave this stuff a try. I figured it couldn’t hurt! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Right?!?
As I’ve come to know “mindfulness” better and better over the last year, I find I’m still fairly skeptical toward the whole concept, though I do enjoy the love and attention I’ve found from my Aura tribe!
When “real -world” methods of health care have floundered, or even failed me outright, mindfulness, and Aura, are still here. Had a slight blow just yesterday proving this out.
The psychiatric nurse practitioner I was referred to and assigned to see recently revealed that she had no idea how to actually help me! I had put no great faith in her, to begin with, but I’m sad to find that she’s not going to be able to help me in any way! I took the opportunity to expand my mind and try something new to me, only to have my initial
skepticism be true! Yet here I still am at Aura! This app and you tribe members I’ve come to know so well in the last year are still available to me...so that’s a HUGE WIN in my column!
