In Need of Needles-The Day Before

So I have decided to go get acupuncture tomorrow with part of my Economic Stimulus Package money. I have been attempting to control my asthma recently with Yoga instead of the more intense asthma medication I was on this winter. I have read on various websites that this is possible. Unfortunately, although I have been going 2-3 times a week to yoga class and doing stretches at home, my asthma is worse than its ever been. I am feeling pretty frustrated and breathless and tired. I had to work from home for my internship today because I was so exhausted from another sleepless night that I couldn't drag myself out of the house. This acupuncture thing better help my asthma like it is supposed to, otherwise its back to osteoporosis-causing drugs for me. Yay.

By the way, I will be chronicling the acupuncture itself, any results, and any following visits.

don't be too hard on yourself, your recent asthma bout could be due to pollen in certain spring-summer blooming foliage in your area.

Yeah, that's definitely true. Its just so difficult to feel like something is out of your control. I am super excited today though! Only 5 hours till the I am a human pincushion!

hopefully it worked out for you... (I just read the post). Shannon swears by acupuncture and has used the treatment in the past for helping with panic disorder. BTW, I'll be coming up to see you guys soon -- at the end of the month! yay
