Filmed live at the Hive, Atlanta, Georgia, on September14, 2020. Dr. Baxter strays from the usual Wednesday broadcast to unbox an unexpected gift from our number one fan! We’ll call her “SM” to protect her privacy. She’s been with us from the beginning!
A little bit about SM: she gets A LOT of shots! She is an advocate for making shots easier, less painful. She has favorite words (list below), songs, tactile experiences, aromatherapies, rituals, and other coping mechanisms to make taking her “liquid devil” shot a bit easier.
A list of SM’s favorite words:
mariposa. poppycock, whiskey, Schmaltz, Schwarzenegger, glock, rotisserie, gorilla, kuss mich zwolfmal, spritzen, peacock, Povich, and counting in German
SM really understands personalizing a pain plan! September is Pain Awareness Month our #1 fan has really perfected her #MyPainPlan. If you’re managing #ChronicPain, we hear you, we see you, we wish you good luck! Check out resources at US Pain Foundation.
Fun reveal: Dr. Baxter is a bit of a stuffed animal fanatic. In her own words: “Ok- I guess technically I have 4 plush Pokémon, a Dr Who Adipose creature, and will try to make room for my Hex Mooshmoosh.”
