    HI Jann,

    Remember to be yourself and also be as honest as you can be. Take your time (breath) and do not feel intiminated.

    I stress, take your time, think about what you are going to say and answer the best you can,

    Sending you prayers,
    Rachel

    Let me know how it goes.

    And it was kind of weird. I was there an hour. He asked me questions about my childhood, where I grew up, whether I heard voices. He spent a lot of time on my agoraphobia, which I don't know was good or bad. Asked me to spell world front and backwards and there were some story problems and counting backward from 100 by 7. I couldn't sit through it all, so I got up and paced and answered as best as I could. I couldn't remember a lot of what he wanted to know. so, now I guess I wait!

    Thanks so much for your help!
