Needles

I went to acupuncture today. I have to say- it's the most relaxed I've been in months. I really enjoyed it. Because I have rheumatoid arthritis and it is very much triggered by stress- the acupuncturist suggests that I combine the acupuncture with massage. Um, ok- if you insist! So I got about 13 needles- one in each wrist, 2 in my right ear, and the rest in my back. I could hardly feel them at all. He also showed me some stretching exercises that he says will help with stress relief. All in all- a good visit. I'll go back on Thursday.

I came home bragging to JC about relaxed I was. We got in bed. And there I lay- totally unable to fall asleep. I tossed and turned for hours and here I am blogging at 4:16am. So much for being relaxed? I noticed that as soon as I left the appointment- I had horrible post nasal drip. It's making my throat scratchy. Please don't let me get sick right now. I don't have time to be sick right now. And I'm pretty sure I'll need a nap later.
