So tomorrow I'm heading to my first-ever appointment for acupuncture. This comes after six years of fighting allergies that leave me feeling fatigued and so fog-headed, I feel like I've had a few very stiff drinks. I'm told that my allergies may be attributed to an imbalance in my spleen and that I need to avoid dairy and sugar, which tax the little thing and keep it from helping me fight my body's foes. I'm excited about the process of maybe treating the problem rather than the symptoms, which I've been doing with various OTC medications.
In the meantime, I'm also hoping it will help me get over my intense fear of needles. Yup, I'm a fainter, so this should be interesting ... Does anyone have any words of wisdom or experiences to share with me?
