I started seeing Joan in 2011 to help me prepare for the WTF Taekwondo World Championships. I’ve been a US National Taekwondo Team Member since 2004 and have competed in numerous international events, but I felt like I needed help mentally preparing.
Your appearance this afternoon on Topical Currents: Dear Ms.(Dr.) Childs, Thank you so much for appearing on the show. Of course, I could get into a long story about so many things related to suicide. Instead, I’ll simply say “Thank You,” for being a special person( I know we’re all “special”), but some of us, like you, do so much for the rest of us, that we need to remind you, over and over, how grateful we are. For my part, I’ve been in remission from a rare neurological syndrome, cervical dystonia, for about 35 years. All I can do, when I talk to people who are suffering with this, is tell them what I think, worked for me. I would have called in on today’s show, but I was already crying. My very best for good health and happiness for you and your family.
