The bad thing is, I kinda/sorta need to keep getting poked with needles.
I've been fooling around with some of those pesky hormonal/auto-immune things for awhile now.
But I'm not a big fan of it.
Mainly, because I have some weird kind of electric chi going on inside of my body.
Hey. Don't roll your eyes at me, Missy.
That's what various acupuncture people have told me over the years.
I don't know why it happens, but whenever I start getting all 'charged up' I know it's time to head to the needle person.
That sounds weird, doesn't it?
But it's true.
If I touch anything metal (or often just another person) it gives me a painful electric jolt.It's the kind of electric shock that makes you fearful to open the dairy case to get out a container of fat-free half-n-half. The kind that makes people glare at you if they touch your hand on accident. The kind that makes you fear the self check-out stand...and the grocery carts.
So I'm heading out to get de-electrified in a little while...and dreading it.
Because although most of the needles don't hurt at all, when they put them in my hands and feet it feels like a lightening bolt shooting out...and it makes me yell.
Which is kinda/sorta embarrassing when you're in the calm, quiet of the acupuncture room.
So, here's the quid pro quo part of the post.
I always get a lot of e-mails with questions about acupuncture... I'll answer as many as I can on a blog post on Wednesday and Friday (based on my experience)...
And if you're one of those 'electrifying' people... ...would you mind sharing with me what you do about it?
I hope this isn't too shocking of a request.
PS. Just sayin'...the new blogger post thing is really obnoxious!
