As I lay face down with needles in my back and calves and mini electrical currents pulsating, I found it difficult to keep my mind on all the negative things forcing their way into my life. Strange how in one instant I was thinking about how my new-found blood issues would impact my life and the next moment I am in a state where there is no thought.
Body heavy and mind eerily still.
As I came back to reality shortly before my acupuncturist came to remove the needles I was struck by the realization that this, however “forced” it felt, is exactly what I need. I need time to turn everything off and not think about what medical issues I face, how I am going to come up with the money needed to pay for acupuncture, work, or any of the hundreds of little issues that arise each day.
For those of you on similar journeys as mine, I highly recommend acupuncture both as a healing tool physically, but mentally as well. Currently I see practitioners (both at the same clinic and with like training) who are specially trained to treat infertility issues. Jane Gregorie and Merry Reasons at Acupuncture Denver are AMAZING! Kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and truly have your best interest at heart. If you live in the Denver area, make an appointment. If you are not in the area, try checking the Fertile Soul’s list of acupuncturists who follow their treatment methods.
With the help of Merry and Jane I am hopeful that my uterus/blood flow issues will be resolved and I’ll be in better place as it relates to stress.
