Behind In My Blog Reading

I've missed reading all your blogs for the last few days. Blog reading is good for my mind and good for my blood pressure. I'm supposed to be monitoring my blood pressure and guess what - if I take it right after reading your blogs I'm always in the "optimal" zone!

And in other health related news....I had an acupuncture appointment Friday in a last ditch effort to keep my gallbladder. I didn't have much hope it would work but at $85 for the hour it was worth a try.

The night before I checked an acupuncture site and couldn't believe the diagram showing all the places they would put needles. Now I know that diagram was correct!

The first half hour I was on my back with a heat lamp on my feet as she put the needles in. There was no pain and no bad sensations. She started removing them at the end of a half hour and then had me turn over (like a stuck pig) and she started needles on my back - some in the scalp and shoulder area. At the end of the session I rested on the table for about 5 minutes and almost went to sleep I was so relaxed.

I still have some small "travel" pins in several places that are half the size of the others and held in place by tape. They stay on until I see her again this Friday. I was told I might feel very tired for a day or have a burst of energy. Well I'm here to tell you I haven't had so much energy in years! I cleaned and tossed stuff all weekend. When I walked the dog on Saturday I had an incredible sense of well being. There were also immediate changes in physical symptoms. I'm not sure if it's the "placebo" effect and all in my head but I don't think so...


Took this picture of Gwyn on our walk....she's 13+ ....gray around the muzzle like me.


There's a HUGE mansion behind this big gate. They always decorate the entrance for different seasonal stuff. It's in the shade and hard to see but it says "Back To School" then "Nooooooooooo!" I hope I can get a better picture of their Halloween decorations.


And now on to your blogs....the best part of my evening!

Acupuncture is great! The only place where I find it really hurts is when they stick needles in your earlobes. That's how I quit smoking, years ago. But it's important to have a really competent acupunctur...ist???, there ARE quacks around.
Good luck with your gall bladder. Hope this works, or at least delays the need for surgery.

Great shot of your dog :)

At 3:16 AM, Blogger saz said...

Claude - She's really good - been doing it for 25 years and her business is all based on referrals - she doesn't advertise. Several people at work go to her so I felt comfortable that she was reputable.

At 7:15 AM, Anonymous Alan G said...


Travel pins?? I don't think so.

Okay, so I don't have a real clue about acupuncture but when someone starts towards me with a needle certain orifices in my body close and lock up!!

Poor Gwyn looks to be a bit tuckered out. Guess a thirteen she is a card carrying AARP member of the cannine community huh?

Hope your health problems improve. Me and Elvis have missed you these last few days. :)

I've been tempted to try acupuncture to help my back. I know several people who have said it does help. But, haven't been able to bring myself to do it.

At 7:20 AM, Blogger Joy Des Jardins said...

I've never had acupuncture, but I've always wondered about it. Several friends have done it and said it worked wonders for them. I love the burst of energy you got...I know I could use that at times. I'm amazed that by placing needles in strategic places...you can feel so much better. Good luck SAZ with your gall bladder. I had mine out about 19 years ago.

At 7:27 AM, Blogger Peggy said...

My husband always likes going to the accupuncturist. He says it's like "taking the fluff off the needle". Everything is just a little sharper.

I may try it sometime. Just have to find somewhere within driving distance of Whitelees.

At 7:40 AM, Blogger Dick said...

I have never tried acupuncture but so far (knock on wood) I have been healthy enough to not need much in the way of medical care. I would have to admit to being a skeptic as I really can't see how sticking needles in my can fix actual physical problems.

Gwyn is cute and a nice size pup to have. I have heard that having a dog is a good way to get exercise as they need to be walked daily. Even if it is raining.

At 8:00 AM, Anonymous Susan said...

I think I'll just keep the needles in my sewing machine for now. I really hope this works for you. I've heard it can do amazing things.

At 11:20 AM, Anonymous naomi dagen bloom said...

well, susan, this description almost makes me want to try acupuncture again. when i did a number of years ago, decided there was a "true believer" characteristic that i was missing. sounds as if it is working for you...here's hoping!

At 12:59 PM, Blogger Betty said...

I hope it works for you. As for me, I have enough needles in my life - insulin, you know. And, being stuck with one twice a day does nothing for my energy level or my mood, for that matter. LOL

At 5:47 PM, Blogger gawilli said...

Hope the acupuncture works for you. A friend of mine successfully rid herself of some hip problems this way.

Gwyn is a beaut!

At 7:46 PM, Blogger Kell said...

I have a friend who swears by acupuncture. She said it doesn't hurt either, so maybe one of these days I'll try it out, too. I sure would love a burst of energy.

BTW, I had my gall bladder taken out a few years ago. The worse part was getting over the anaeth, aneth, that stuff that knocks you out. If you do have to go through the procedure, it's simple and the recovery is pretty quick.

And Gwyn is the cutest!

At 8:42 PM, Blogger willi said...

I think I will try the blood pressure check after reading blogs.

Cute dog, reminds me of our Lucy.

Can't wait to see the gate at Halloween.

At 10:00 PM, Blogger J-Funk said...

I had a roommate in college who had to have her gall bladder removed. She never tried acupuncture (sounds like she should have) but she did try some chinese medicine tea or something that made her throw up for a few days. I don't think that worked at all.

That's awesome that blog reading lowers your blood pressure. Google should advertise that. Although they probably don't need to advertise blogger - it seems to ride pretty well on its own. Did you know you can buy a blogger t-shirt through Google? It's cute.

At 3:55 AM, Blogger mjd said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope that the acupuncture works for you. Certainly, a burst of energy and well-being are a good start.

Even with shadows, the back to school photo is fun. We used to have a family in town that wrote festive holiday signs like Happy Thanksgiving with styrofoam cups in their chain link. The family lived along a busy street so passersby could read the messages. Maybe not aesthetic, but these holiday greetings were cheery. I anticipated a new one for each season. The folks must have moved as the fence has been without greetings these past few years.

At 4:02 AM, Blogger Cazzie!!! said...

What gorgeous pic of your dog, you made me laugh with the caption a grey like you, LOL! Are you sure you arent an Aussie with your great humour :) We always take the mickey out of ourselves too, perhaps it is why Americans and Aussies get along so famously :)
Are you anywhere near Carmel in California? My best friend came from there.

At 4:02 AM, Blogger Cazzie!!! said...

Oh, and the accupuncture, I am going to look into an appointment for myself now :) THanks

At 7:51 AM, Blogger Lucy said...

A few years ago, I strained my back. So I sometimes go to acupuncture clinic near my house.
Acupuncture clinic's doctor help me. It is 5000Yen per one hour. Unfortunately, acupuncture clinics don’t accept health insurances in Japan.

At 8:54 AM, Anonymous John said...

Interesting. My wife has just started a course of acupuncture to try and help with the pain of a serious internal disorder. She has had three sessions and seems to be getting some relief. Cost here in the UK about $58 per hour.

At 8:59 AM, Blogger Newt said...

Gwyn is darling. I wish you all the best with the acupuncture. My husband had it done for several years until the person who did it for him moved away. It really did help him. I never figured out why he didn't just find someone else.

At 9:20 AM, Blogger F&W said...

Oooo...I'd love to try acupuncture. It's nice to know you almost dozed off from the relaxation. That's good, yes?

Gwyn is lovely! What a cute little pup she is.

I've missed reading everyone's blogs too. I'm now at a different temp assignment for 2 days and I'm thinking I will be all caught up by 10am. :) While it's a good thing I've got more autonomy AND Internet access, I'm thinking this could get old after 2 days. Busy is better, I guess.

At 9:27 AM, Blogger Lucy said...

SAZ, correction
Not 5000yen
It is 4000Yen about 45 minutes.
It is expensive for me. But it is nice for me.

At 7:40 PM, Anonymous Maria said...

I hope this treatment is the answer to your gall bladder problem. You could send some of that renewed energy you have to me.

Both my dogs are in their mature ages and have that same somewhat dignified older dog look as your Gwyn.

At 4:10 AM, Blogger Savtadotty said...

I hope the acupuncture helps you. I went to an acupuncturist about 12 years ago, and he prescribed that I get a dog! I did, and I don't even remember why I went to him, but I am very pleased with the outcome.

At 4:30 AM, Blogger her indoors said...

had accupuncture once to quit smoking they put the needle in your ear, me not like, apparently i have sensitve ears! well i found that out but its served me no purpose, good luck with the gallbladder, had mine out two years ago

At 8:33 AM, Blogger SzélsőFa said...

I've never tried acupuncture, but I would, if I had to.
The dog is nice!
Thanks for linking me!

At 1:24 PM, Blogger goldenlucyd said...

Better and better all the time! Your posts, I mean---and I'm obviously not the only one who feels that way. You put so much of yourself out here in such a loving way that we just can resist you!!

I've never thought about acupunture before. However, I'm at a point with my shoulder pain that I try everything. My rotator cuff is gone and it's bone-on-bone in there. Owwiee-Oowweeie! Thanks for the tip.
PS I love your dog. Is her name Welsh?

At 2:03 PM, Blogger Tink said...

That is SO cool that they decorate their gate for the season! If I ever have a mansion... ;)

At 6:08 PM, Anonymous millie garfield said...

Hi Saz

Hopefully the acupuncture will work for you, interesting that your blood pressure was lower after the treatment - guess it was because you were so relaxed

And that energy boost you got afterwards, that was a bonus.

Cute dog ;-)

At 4:51 PM, Anonymous Terri said...

Really enjoyed your very informative words on acupuncture. I've never tried it, but have always been interested in it. It was interesting to hear you say there was no pain. I'd read there wasn't, but you're the proof.
Your dog is SO cute...and what a great age. Thanks for sharing the photos.
Best of luck with keeping your gallbladder...it'll be interesting to follow along and see what happens.

Gwen looks good at 13. I hope I look as good when I get there.

As usual your photos are so cool; as for me––back to work––nooooooo! Shucks, I'm still here at my desk.

Wow, Gwen looks good at 13. I hope I look as good when I get there.

Your photos are always so cool. Bakc to work––nooooooo. Shucks, I'm still at my desk.

BTW, Naomi's photo is up. She looks great! I'm so happy.

Well firstly, they are not Circulatory Problems, they are behavioural conditions which are stored as memory, habit and instinct in an organ called the Amygdala, seated inside the subconscious brain; and, secondly, I don't like the term disorder, it implies illness and inappropriate anxiety isn't an illness, it's inappropriate anxiety. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is both a psychological as well as a chemical ailment in which the sufferer experiences great trepidation towards being in groups of people.
