Chewing on a Piece of Grass

I realized something recently.  I always listen to Ventura Highway on my way to a birth or prenatal/postpartum appointment.  What is that all about?  The song relaxes me so maybe it is my subconscious attempt to encourage oxytocin–the love hormone?  Or maybe I’m self-medicating?  My sister (the counselor) teased me recently by “diagnosing” me with a social phobia.  Synthetic oxytocin is currently being studied as a treatment for social phobia.  Still, who needs oxytocin nasal spray when you can listen to America?

At least I think she was teasing me…
