Chinese Medicine

So I have been swollen, most of my body, for weeks now. I can't take it anymore and the joint pain is ridiculous. I know I am flaring but my megga doses of mezavant, suppositories and enemas is keeping the blood away.

So today I tried something new. I went for a consultation with a woman who practices chinese medicine up the road. After the consultation, I had my first treatment which was acupuncture, cupping and massage. I might even feel better. I am not sure. The experience was pleasant and I am hopeful that it will help with some of my symptoms. I will go back again next week.

Has anyone tried this?

Legume Love

Legumes, I love you.

I loved you in the curry when you appeared as lentils and garbanzo beans.

I loved you in the quinoa salad all black and lovely.

I loved you as peas in my samosa.

However, you don't seem to love me as much as I love you. Couldn't you be a little gentler? Could you treat me with the same respect that I consumed you with?
