I don’t know what these numbers mean so let’s hope I’m not giving out a ton of personal info 😂😂 .
I’m sick of being sick. This stupid disease has taken my education, my relationships, my employment, my happiness, my joy, it’s taken everything that I have. I just want it to be over, but I know this is going to be a life long battle
What do physio's do with their mornings off
Does anyone else have a huge collection of filled sharps boxes 😂
It’s been hectic at work and stuff lately- I was feeling quite drained! Went for #Accupuncture this morning.
No, it doesn’t hurt (much!)- and it’s totally worth the temporary discomfort which might come with it. In the past, I have had sessions for anxiety, sleep quality, sinus and quitting smoking.
A big believer in it and highly recommend it. For those in Karachi, I have two places I recommend. Give it a shot... #chinesemedicine #alternatehealing #toomanyneedles
Coincidentally, I was recently bitten by a kitten too young to be vaccinated. Since we don't know her mother, guess who is getting 30 shots in her stomach Thankfully, that's not true, it's 4 shots in the shoulder. 2 funny things about this: 1) When in Angola, don't look for rabies vaccines from a doctor. Only veterinarians have them. 2) The Portuguese word for "rabies" is the same as the word for "rage". So we spent the day going to various hospitals asking for a vaccine against rage, with no luck. Finally found it at the vet. I am now vaccinated against rage. I suppose I will now only get mildly angry.
One week later~ I get to go home 🙂
Thank you for all the well wishing messages I’ve received over the last week, from so many people and All of those who offered to come visit me too! It was overwhelming and very much appreciated. ❤️
During the week I bought Cat Bordhi's sock book to try to learn how to make 'em.
Is it normal to, after an hour of playing with dpns, want to find the nearest significant body of water and throw them in

James Harrison (@jhharrison92) used to hate needles—HATE them. But after 15 punishing seasons in the NFL, the New England Patriot linebacker, who on Sunday will play in his fourth Super Bowl, has learned to love them. Well maybe not love them, but he loves what they do for his 39-year-old body. Last spring photographer Fritz Hoffmann and I spent several days in Arizona documenting Harrison’s offseason routine, which includes a variety of therapies to help reduce the pain and soreness that comes with his famously intense weightlifting sessions. He told us that former teammate James Farrior got him to try acupuncture for the first time. “He said, ‘Dude, try this. You're going to feel great.’ I'm like, 'Dude, (screw) needles.' But I did it, and it worked. So, I said, OK, I'm going to have to deal with the needles.” Since then, Harrison’s acupuncturist, Lisa Ripi, flies in from New York for weekly sessions. The day we were there, she inserted more than 400 needles at different points all over his body. He seemed to barely notice, checking his phone and reading on his laptop as she slid in the needles. Some go as deep as three inches into his dense muscles. Ripi says this promotes blood flow and speeds recovery after a workout. It’s a technique that remains controversial among medical professionals. “If it makes me feel good and I play good, that's all I need,” said Harrison. “I don't need no scientific proof. I don't need no studies. I don't need none of that.”

I am so sad to be away from your smiling faces, your sarcasm, your love and hearing of your highs and lows. As I’m sure you’ve been made acutely aware - this year has been a rough one for me, medically. I’ve had to miss many moments of your year, and that truly breaks my heart! Seriously! I have a few more tests to be done, treatment and then I should be able to return before spring break! 😍 Be kind to one another, and feel free to email me if you need anything (or just someone to listen to you xx). I think about y’all everyday. 💛 Coops
It was a weekend for the history books, hopefully never to be repeated. We're thankful for a faithful God and His strength to get us through. 💪 I'm happy to be home, snuggled in and feeling better. I'm thankful for @isaacboyes the best looking male nurse 😜 and @leafluit @tamminga and all the family and friends for their kind words and support! I love you all!
@proudfootk for the cozy knits 🤗

Good luck!! #hesstillsmiling #imfreakingout #toomanyneedles
