It's The Attitude

Listen 28 min

If you are one of these people, you should listen to this show:

Do you often know more than your doctor?

Do you freeze up when someone says, ”How are you?”

Have you ever done something

you know will make you sick?

Do you believe you personally

caused your own illness

or other problem?

Do you believe your disability

or other problems were caused

by the Great Sea Monkey?

Do you have cancer or know someone with cancer?

Do you hate chess?

Have you ever had to fight

with a drug or insurance company?

Do you like to laugh?
