I love going to acupuncture. Even though I still hurt and it is obviously not helping with my pain or my fatigue, I feel such an emotional release, and such a release of tension that it is worth it to me. Yesterday some of the needles hurt and one of them hurt so badly that she had to move it. I don’t want to put anyone off trying acupuncture because of that. I’ve been four times and out of probably 50 needles over all those visits, only two of them have hurt like this. If you’ve read my “Note to Self” post, then you know that acupuncture also has helped with my tummy troubles. The benefits, so far, outweigh the minimal discomfort. Acupuncture is the most relaxing hour that I have. Even when I’m home alone, under my heating blanket, I don’t feel the peace that I feel when I am lying there, with the soothing music and the lights dim and lots of needles sticking out of me. I ruined the image with that last part, right? You don’t feel the needles and if you just concentrate on your breathing and keep your brain shut off, it will amaze you how relaxed you are. The next part is TMI, so stop reading Mom. I felt so good after the session yesterday that I was actually horny. I cannot tell you how wonderful that was! If only I could get the correct muscles to spasm instead of the wrong ones (if you get my meaning-wink-wink).
In other becoming-one-with-myself news I’m trying a new game for the XBOX Kinect called “Deepak Chopra Leela”. It is supposed to be a meditation game and supposed to be able to tell if you are relaxing or breathing properly. I haven’t figured out how I’m going to play this without interference from my three-year-old or my older two who are out for summer break but I’m really looking forward to trying it. I used to love playing the dancing games, but I can’t anymore and I’m hoping this game will be my new thing. I’ll let you know.
