It's actually Thursday, April 18 at 3:00-ish in the morning. I'm wide awake. This is my entry for Tuesday, April 16...

What a crazy day at work! IT issues up the wazoo. Donn, Kris and I were all working on an issue with Alicia's Profile and computer (she starts next week). Plus I had to speak again at Staff meeting (sigh).

My message was to be sure and log off your computer, and make sure you close all your programs first. Simple, right?

With a reminder about the message from last week to manage email. Never gonna happen with many of them...

I'm sleepy and drifting a bit, suddenly. Damn! I want to finish this entry...

Donn drove me to my acupuncture appointment. The clinic isn't that far away from our office (but certainly not walking distance).

This was my first-ever experience with acupuncture. I couldn't believe how many more questions I was asked, considering the in-depth questionnaire I filled out!

Finally I was on the table, with needles being inserted. I couldn't see all of them placed, but one went into my head, one in my ear, one in my wrist, another in the tip of my nose and one in my foot.

Then I relaxed, almost immediately sleeping! She came back and had me stay longer. I slept more. Then I deprted -- Donn picked me up and took me shopping at Freddie's, then finally home.

I'm so eager to see the effects of acupuncture. It has the ability to cure me, or so I've read. Western medicine has no cure, for the record. It goes away, or not. Seriously?

But it can take several appointments. And the results don't display immediately.

Postherpetic neuralgia is so terribly painful, I'm just glad to be doing something really positive.

And that's it for this post.....
