I had an appointment with acupuncturist Li last week to work on these last vestiges of morning sickness (thankfully, it’s intermittent, and I do have my energy back, so really, mostly I’m better).

She said something about how long I’d been coming to see her, and I mentioned that I remembered way back at my first visit, when she regaled me with miracle stories. I said “Now maybe now you can tell people about me!” and she said “No…you took FOREVER!” I guess it wasn’t just me that thought it was taking a while to get my cycles into shape. Maybe I’m not the poster child I thought I was.

I take this to imply that most people should get fixed up much faster than I did, so to anyone who found my acupuncture story horrifying due to it’s length, perhaps I was an outlier.
