What would you prescribe yourself?

Zoom in to this image and read text description

I ran a creative workshop yesterday at the wonderful Dragon Cafe inspired by Prescription of Stars poem.

Here is what I said to people: "Fed up of being prescribed tablets? Here is a chance, using whatever creative method you wish, to take over an A4 prescription-style template to prescribe yourself what you think will heal your wounds."

The answers were interesting and sometimes poignant. The most popular answers were hugs, massages and good friendships. One person said psychiatry should stop prescribing grief and isolation. What would you put on your form? Of course, I put sheep on mine!
