Mindpop has made me famous. This past weekend, I was invited to Salt Lake City to speak for the Utah Stroke Symposium, thanks to a Mindpop reader.

I told the doctor and therapist audience to be encouraging to their patients. I haven’t always had encouraging care. Watch out, heartless medical staff, your patients are speaking.

    I just fired one of my doctors who could not understand that part of his role was to motivate & inspire; don’t underestimate how damaging it is to have this kind of negativity around you; since cutting him loose I have been sleeping better & my energy is way up! Doctors are not irreplaceable, and need to earn your patronage same as with any other business, if you are not happy, move on!!

    It has almost been a year since my brother had his stroke. We’ve had some amazing and some really pessimistic doctors, nurses, and therapists. I agree with you. There is no room for negativity! Keep up the great work Nina!
