Thank Gus*


Lovely image.


Well acupuncture yesterday was mixed.



It's normally a really nice environment, low lights and soothing music. But then this one woman came in with a 2 week old baby. She put the baby in the room where the techs are, but it immediately started screaming. Trust me a screaming baby is not conducive to relaxation. I didn't want to complain, because I felt bad for the mother, but it was really annoying. After about half an hour another woman complained and they made mom and baby leave.


Then I only had another 15 min., before I had to leave to go to another group, and I was too stressed to relax.


But it did totally remove my cravings, which was awesome. I even went out with a friend for Italian, which would normally make me want to drink, and didn't have the slightest urge.


I had them put the seeds in my ears, to help with cravings today, and I'm going to go back for another acupuncture session tomorrow.

Thanks Gus* I really am lucky to have the high level of good care that I receive. I've found that there are tons of resources and help available to people, once you've figured out how to navigate the system and advocate for yourself.


Going in for another acupuncture session this afternoon and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm doing ok on the alcohol cravings front, so I'd stopped going for acupuncture regularly. But I'm starting a clonazepman taper this week, and am hopeful that the acupuncture will help me manage that withdrawal as well.
