Update on my Acupuncture.
Just a quick update for my many friends here.
I had the acupuncturist treat me two days ago.
Did it help?
Yes, for about 24'hours.
I managed to get up and walk with only a little pain.
Unfortunately the pain came back yesterday afternoon and last night was almost unbearable.
I'm a bit more settled at the moment because I have a heat bag and taken pain killers.
The pain killers are supposed to last up to eight hours but they only give me some relief for two hours.
I have no alternative but to try the acupuncturist again today. At least he's willing to come to our home. But our medical costs are mounting up and my wife is resorting to selling items on local buy and sell sites to pay for them.
The only other treatment that might help is a spinal injection, . But I've been waiting for weeks now for notification from the specialist that he is in our area to do this.
They don't seem to care that you are in pain in the meantime.
It annoys me that they can't hospitalize me for a few days. This would give my poor wife a break. She's getting very little sleep.
I have always been a person with a strong will power but I'm running out of hope.
Thank you All for your prayers
All the best. Jim
