13 weeks, 4 days

Because I haven't been poked and prodded enough...

Mireille decided it would be a good idea to try acupuncture to get rid of the last bit of tension and pain in the knee. She heard good things about this acupuncturist. He's been known to cure people of cancer. Surely, he could do something for me.

We've had acupuncture in the past but nothing like this. This guy is hardcore.

Mireille's used to having the needles lightly tapped into the skin. This guy shoved.

Mireille's used to having the needles lightly moved around to stimulate the area. This guy used heat.

And, when I say "heat", there were ashes all over me. He must have burnt the remaining nerves so I wouldn't feel anything anymore.

All kidding aside, I am feeling pretty good. I haven't had much of a limp since.


  1. I can't stand acupuncture either but my physio loves doing it. Definitely helps with aches and pains!

  2. I agree! I've noticed a difference. Wish I woulda started earlier...
