RUN THE DISHWASHER Two times. At the point when I was at one of my least (mental) focuses throughout everyday life, I was unable to get up certain days. I had no energy or inspiration and was scarcely scraping by.

I had treatment one time each week, and on this specific week, I didn’t have a lot to ‘bring’ to the meeting. He asked how my week was and I truly had nothing to say. “What are you battling with?” he inquired.
