Rosie is a Godsend! I can honestly say I got more out of therapy with Rosie than expected. It took a lot of courage on my part to even go to my first appointment. I was embarrassed about my bladder issues. After countless visits to the urologist, test after test, I was taught to use a self-catheter and was told there was nothing that could be done. Boy did Rosie prove them wrong!
