Yes, at least that is what my acupuncturist/Chinese herbal doctor said…do they feel old, I wonder….

Apparently, my general lethargy is from their rapid aging process…well, thanks to Dr. Chen, I’m feeling lighter, more alert and a bit more energetic.  That is only after 3 treatments, so I am hopeful.  Plus, he’s treating my right wrist/elbow/shoulder and back pain that has been preventing me from knitting…

So here I am, hoping there is a better life for me out there in the future 🙂

Knitting again…

July 23, 2012

After what feels like months of sabbatical from my knitting, I’m finally getting back into it…my right elbow seems ok after about an hours’ worth of it last night.  Not to bad, I suppose.  But seriously, I was not knitting at my regular pace…even my sis noticed…but I need to get back to it.  I have SO many to finish up…and frankly, it’s gnawing at me…I need to finish a handful before this winter comes.

This “Owly” for my sis has been hibernating for months…I’ve finally got the right needles for the sleeves…I can’t wait to see her wearing it with the sort of matching tote bag I made 🙂  with love…

IBS as it’s called in it’s short form…terrible “illness” this…

I was reading my favourite blog/website (“needled” – Kate Davies) about to type a comment when a comment caught me eye and I clicked on the link to check out this blog….”mystudentstruggles”..long story short…I have horrid memories of the worst episodes…it’s painful and unpleasant…I wish her well…

Funny how we are sent here to this physical plane, in the body we are given (nothing by choice, mind you) without a manual….part of life is to find the best way to care for this physical body of ours…while searching for our mission…if we are lucky, we will connect our inner self and the universe and find our purpose before our days are over…

I had this long “conversation” with my best friend the other day…via texting…how did she phrase it?  Hmm…quoting her (thanks, babe)..

“I think we get to similar places with different start…I do a lot cause it feels good to me and others”…thanks Al, you’re the best!

 

Oh…where should I start…..my body feels as though it’s been rolled over by ten million trucks…

There’s this really odd “sore throat” lingering and not even loads of green onions/miso soup plus 8-10 hours of sleep per night has done much to stomp it….yes…we practice Reiki in our household…loads and loads of it….

I woke up this morning and found this big red spot in my left eye….burst blood vessel….not itchy…or not itchy enough for me to rub my eye….

Sigh….it’s bright and sunny out….it’ll probably go away…
