l have an Acupuncturist coming to my home.
This is just a quick blog.
As many of my friends at WA know, I have been experiencing incredible pain lately.
I have a herniated disc in my upper back, lower back issues plus I suffer from osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
These issues were sitting in my body like a bomb waiting to go off, and a few months back they finally did.
unfortunatelty I developed sciatica from the ruptured disc. Due to my other issues the treatment I can pursue is limited. For example, I can't undergo a spinal alignment, and any massage has to be extremely gentle.
The doctor has me on a waiting list for a spinal injection, but this might take many weeks as there's only one specialist servicing our region.
Pain killers only give me minimal relief and coupled with a heat and hold pack I can many to get some sleep in twenty to forty minute increments.
But I have strong hope.
My granddaughter has set up a home appointment with an acupuncturist. She swears by him as do many others.
Its worth a try.
My problem is that I can't sit. On a good day I can have a hot shower and spend a couple of hours walking in circles with the help of my cane.
I made the mistake of sitting in a chair yesterday and it left me in agony all night. This also means that the only way to get to hospital is via ambulance.
Mentally, I also have my good and bad days. Several times I have come close to quitting WA and all my other online activities.
If I can't find relief, then this might still have to happen.
At the moment the only activity I can undertake during the day is to lie on my back in bed and type away on my mobile phone on WA
The Acupuncturist is due here in under an hour, so I ask for your prayers that this will work.
Thank you my friends. Jim
