Week 3 at the Rehab Centre’s chronic pain management program is complete, which means I only have one week left! If you have no idea what I’m talking about check out my updates from week 1 and week 2 where I explain all about why I’m there and what it’s all about then come back here.
Are you caught up now? Good.
This week we had some interesting sessions on acceptance of pain, weekend planning, and communication. The communication session was my favourite because it was so concrete and full of really handy tips with funny names like “fogging,” “broken record,” and “content-to-process shift.”
It was a good thing we talked about weekend planning this week because I had a full weekend planned. On Saturday I went and had a photoshoot with Muse Mohammed, a local photographer. I can’t wait to share the shots with you because they are so fierce and glamorous AND I got my head shaved in a funky new way!
On Sunday, I spent most of the day preparing blog posts, doing laundry, and tying up loose ends for upcoming events. There’s so many little things on the way! Next Tuesday, February 5th, I’ll be coming down to Toronto to play at Hugh’s Room (details here), I’m also preparing for Wed By Hand on Sunday, February 10th, and Canadian Music Week in March. Yay!
So that’s it for this week’s update. Only one more week of Rehab Centre updates and then it’s back to regularly scheduled programming. My next performance is tonight at the Mercury Lounge for Live Jazz Monday! 9pm – 11pm, no cover, see you tonight!
