Energy flow

Anyone who knows me and/or reads this blog knows that I have been rather ill lately.  I am in my fifth week of this current bout with bronchitis, and it all stems from my chronic sinusitis.  Anyway, everyone also knows that I am sick of it.

So, since Western medicine seems to have failed me, I decided to try something else.  Today I went for my first ever visit to an alternative health clinic.  I have read that Chinese medicine can help with most problems, and that lung and sinus problems are often easily fixed by such methods.  I figured it could not hurt to try it.

So, after a consultation with the doctor, I had a wonderful acupuncture session involving 23 needles strategically placed all over my body to help my qi.  The procedure was relaxing, relatively painless, and a bit invigorating.  I do not yet know if it will help, but I feel like I may be taking a good step. In addition, I have some fascinating Chinese herbal medicines.

So, we will see.  But I do have some faith in it all.

You'll have to give us updates. Acupuncture is intriguing stuff.

On an unrelated note, what is the name of the school you work at again? I met a guy this weekend who went to a prestigious public high school in the north suburbs called "North Trier" or something along those lines, I don't remember what exactly but it reminded me of you.

He went to NEW Trier, which is indeed a very prestigious high school. I am just north of there at Lake Forest.

Aha. Thanks! Hope you feel better soon after your recent injury.
