My first visit to the acupuncturist
This afternoon I let someone stick fifteen needles in my rear-end, put little tufts of Chinese herbal fuzz on the tips and light each one on fire. Now I feel fantastic! Who knew?
I have had the worst sciatica this pregnancy. When I go to bed, my hips hurt so much that I get stuck, and can't get out of bed. I hobble like an old lady to the bathroom. I get an acute nervy zing every time I sit down, and I can barely lift Calvin.
But after the first visit to the acupuncturist, I don't feel any pain. Hallelujah.
