12 months, 22 lbs, 30 inches tall, 6 shots, 3 needle sticks, a finger prick and a low hemoglobin! We’re glad he’s a happy healthy boy, but even happier today is coming to an end #roughday #toomanyneedles #hesgettingahappy #toughboy

Yesterday, I went to an allergy/asthma specialist. 50 tests on my back, 7 on my arm and 1 blood draw. The only thing I know for sure is I'm officially not allergic to fire ants, dairy, wheat and a bunch of other stuff.
I still get to carry an inhaler for days when my asthma flares up. And I'm waiting on blood test results. I have to remember to check my pulse when I have trouble breathing. The doc thinks it could be related to PVC issues. 😬

I'm ready for more answers.

Having a ruff time at the vet. Colt decided to hide his veins and had to get poked a few times for his heartworm test. Front leg, back leg, and finally had a neck vein that deigned to give up a few drops. And then he had to get poked again for Adequan and vaccines. One more poke for the Proheart when the heartworm test is done. #pibble #pibblesofinstagram #pitbullsofaustin #toomanyneedles #goodboy

One last #medalmonday with my @chimarathon medal now that I got it back from engraving! I ordered the official iTab for the medal for my time so I thought it was appropriate to have my IG handle engraved on this medal! I plan on always running but someday I might not use this account anymore, and who knows what can happen, but for me having the handle engraved on it will always be a reminder of this amazing community and how you all helped me get to my goal! No matter who does or does not realize it, you’ve all inspired me! But now it’s time to retire this medal to my medal graveyard and look forward to new races, new goals and new memories!
~
As I plan for my next races, I’m trying to improve my run game in the kitchen as well as on the roads, thus my background #cookbooks from @shaleneflanaganofficial and @elysekopecky! Making my first two dishes from these this week!
~
And yes, my motivation includes all my fellow beer nerds I’ve connected with here too! You inspire me as well, just in a very different way! 😆

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

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.

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?

I've been going through a storm this past month and had to go MIA from social to help better manage. It gave me some time to reassess my own personal sources of joy to counter the sads. I've taken inventory of my art supplies! I'll say it to make it so - my feed is going to change as I change parts of my life 💜 💜 💜  #toomanyneedles #sadfacepictures #Nothingtopost #anembryonic #nointervention #imamaker #iloveart

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.”

Preparation. 
As I contemplate how to respond to this photo floating around in social media, all I can think about is how hard these men work. Seriously, athletes are amazing. Training, blood, sweat, tears, coaches, teammates, media.. they are real life struggles for them. However, in the end, it comes down to peak performance at specific game time. Preparation is key. I love this image.. I see a relaxed athlete, rejuvenating for the big day. Traditional Chinese Medicine nourishes an athletes focus, stamina, muscle tonicity, balance and overall performance. What are you training for? #ipokeyoubetta #aculand #gogetsome #chinesemedicine #acupunctureworks #pdxacupuncture #tcm #traditionalchinesemedicine #toomanyneedles #orthopedicacupuncture #acupunctureforpain #portlandacupuncturist #tcmforathletes #sportsacupuncture

My dears,
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 🤗
