Amen to that. At first, I also hurried up to go home and sit and do what? I finally learned, slow down, take a deep breath, take a nap and infuse really, really slowly. With the new slow way I no longer have headaches for days after.

Trouble is, when I got infused at home guess what they wanted? ‘Faster, bro, faster- I’m paid a flat fee, I’m going home quick.’ No, thank you.
