And Pins

In pain and desperation I rang an acupuncturist and osteopath in Primrose Hill and by luck, there was a cancellation and they could squeeze me in, or squeeze some money out of me. Desperate times so off I went.

The pain had been fairly excruciating but being English, I said I was in discomfort. My right arm was practically useless and no, I’m not exaggerating. By the time I arrived for my appointment, I was supporting it in my left hand and all aspects of stoicism were rapidly departing. 

I’d been working on a deadline and while the deadline was met, my body it seemed had paid the price. It didn’t bode well for my reentry into the fast paced life of design.

After several painful needles and some worrying neck and back cracking, the Antipodean osteopath (which is pretty much the same as a chiropractor) determined I had a pinched nerve in my neck and said during the next 48 hours it would either improve or not. Very reassuring.

After an extremely painful night of misery (all aspects of stoicism having gone completely), it seemed slightly better. 

The countdown is on until tomorrow as the initiation begins at 10am…
