Finding Relief In Pain One Piercing Moment At A Time

I kind of lost count of how any piercings I have, so I guess you can say I’m addicted to them. 🙈 I have a couple tattoos but, piercings are my thing. Probably because they aren’t permanent. I can eventually take them out whenever I don’t want them anymore. Unlike tattoos, you have to go through a lot more to remove them.

The great things about piercings are that while they are a great way for self-expression, they can actually be beneficial to your health. As I’ve started to become more aware of my body and learn different ways besides medication to combat my pain, I learned that some piercings may help.

The New Killer Drug? 🤔

The New Killer Drug? 🤔

Can I just start off by saying that I love my doctor? 🙌🏾 She’s quick, to the point, but is very attentive and actually listens to what I have to say (unlike some doctors I’ve come across through this journey).🙄

Last night was about 45 degrees. But, even still, I slept with the windows open, the fan on, and under the blankets because I sweating but still cold. I didn’t have a fever, I checked. It had to be really cold because Polo, who is prone to over-heating (it’s a shih Tzu thing), was completely under the blankets. Sorry Polo! Since I slept in an ice box half the night, I didin’t get much sleep, and of course I woke up being a little congested and extra tired this morning.

It’s not winter here yet but, it’s now starting to feel like it’s moving in that direction. After weeks of saying “are we sure it’s October”, the weather has finally broke and we are now experiencing fall weather.

I hate winter. It’s not even here and I’m already wishing it would go away. Winter is the season when I experience the most fluctuation of my body temperature. Continue reading “Sweating In The Middle of Winter”
