🗝 Keep faith. Start small and build up, step by step. Everyone had to start somewhere, even the expert was once a beginner. You’ll get there.

Every “no” gets you closer to a “yes.” Every failure get you closer to a win. Do the work, for as long as it takes...reap the rewards. Persistence and perseverance separates the ”bosses” from the amateurs.
💥OVERDOSING ON PLACEBO PILLS💥
I came across a fascinating case report on Twitter the other day that I felt was worth sharing. In a 2007 anti-depressant clinical drug💊 trial, one of the participants in the control group consumed 29 INERT capsules, BELIEVING he was overdosing on an antidepressant.
Consequently, he developed SEVERE drops ⬇ in blood pressure, requiring intravenous fluids. Interestingly, as soon as the individual was made aware that the pills were placebo pills, his symptoms IMMEDIATELY resolved.✅
Case and point: THOUGHTS💭 AND BELIEFS 🤔can have very real and serious negative health consequences. Nocebo is real!!
But you know...let’s keep telling people with high psychosocial risk profiles that they’re bones are out of place and stuff. Good call. 👍(🤦)
Be better. Make moves!
