Acupuncture Update 03/03/17

Howdy guys!

Something pretty amazing has happened…

I actually discharged myself from acupuncture! I don’t think I’ve ever reached a point where I’ve been ready to end some treatment purely of my own choosing (with anything relating to my cerebral palsy) before.

Man, it feels so good to be able to say that. I’m pretty convinced my acupuncturist is amazing to be honest. She warned me right at the start of this second block of appointments that I might not notice a dramatic change in my pain levels so quickly this time because it wasn’t as bad as it had been the first time I came to see her.

Some of you might remember that I’ve been having a second round acupuncture appointments for that thing that I not-so-lovingly call my Mystery Hip Pain. Acupuncture has been the only thing to ever make it go away, which doesn’t seem like an east feat to me (with my zero amount of medical training) given that no one knows why I have it in the first place.

A couple of appointments later when I told her I was worried that it wasn’t realy havng a impact of me at all, she changed her approach a bit and stuck even more needles into me, and lo and behold, the MHP was practically gone a couple of weeks later, and bothered me so little that I told her I felt like it was probably as good as I could get. And bless her, she kept my referral open for a month or so in case I changed mind. Well, that month has past now and I still don’t feel like I need to go back.

Yep, she must be magic.

  1. way I see it Nic, theres three variables contributing to the magic. The acupuncturist is not likely to be wizard, acupuncture is a tried and tested age old science, so that leaves yourself as magic Probable.

  2. That’s excellent Nic…not only are you feeling better but your using your feeling in a good way (or telling the Doctor’s about it) which is always hard for me. Keep up the good work.
