Fifty percent happy

I sacked out in bed today, after a real "blammo" acupuncturing (which is, from the way I felt getting off the table, going to make a huge difference, specifics to reveal themselves in time), a pretty serious snooze, several hours.

When I woke up, I was hot, pretty uncomfortably hot. Bedside thermometer said "87," not exactly in the MS comfort zone.

Except, my legs felt all bundled up and toasty, as though they were under a nice down comforter (they weren't). They felt warm enough, thank you very much, but they were comfortable, much moreso than my core.

Yet again, I'm Schrodinger's MS patient. I'm 50% happy with the weather, no matter how hot or cold it is.

Many things can be said about the MS experience, but "uninteresting" is certainly not one of them.

Better to be 50% happy than 50% unhappy, right? Does accupunture really work? Been thinking about looking into it lately. Take care.

Acupuncture REALLY works, but for what it does. Go for "classical five-element" acupuncture, which isn't affiliated with herbalism, it works on a very subtle and powerful level. But like any treatment, if it fixes what's broken, it'll fix you, and if you're broken with what it don't fix, don't waste your time.
