me, one day later

I feel calm. The permanent crease in my forehead is temporarily relaxed.  I feel so heavy, in a good way.  I think I could actually sleep for a really long time right now.  This is me one day later. 

Right now I am on somewhat of a post acupuncture high.  Yes I loathe needles.  Acupuncture is different.  I was first introduced to acupuncture last winter.  This was one of many interventions I tried to right my body before we had my Husband tested.  Today was different... I was there for pure stress relief.  The minute that needle went into my forehead, the permanent forehead stress melted away. 

I also happened upon this over lunch...

I tried it on.  I loved it.  I put it back.  God I am disciplined!  Back at the office Sue, of ProjectLifebySue, miraculously had a forty percent off coupon for today that she swore she was not intending to use.  Long story short.  The dress is mine.

One more key piece to my much improved demeanor at the moment... voicemail... yes there was a blinking light awaiting my arrival post acupuncture.  Test results are in.  The clinic will be calling to hopefully book us in for the information session this Saturday.  This means we have a good chance of starting this cycle and not being benched until January.  All is not lost.  I can breathe again.


  1. Nice to join your story! I also love acupuncture. I am thinking of starting back up with it even though our next IF procedure is not until January. I actually miss it.

    I love love the dress...where did you get it?

  2. Thanks for following me! I booked today's acupuncture appointment last week just to de-stress and it really helped. Those needles have magical powers!! The dress is actually from the Gap.

  3. Acupuncture and Retail therapy - what a fabulous combination. Two of my favorite defusers.

    And even better to hear that you'll be able to move forward soon. Looking forward to hearing about the seminar.

    Thanks for the thoughful comment on my blog, I look forward to following your journey as well.

  4. YAY! So happy for you, Ash! Such great news. I hope you sleep well tonight. Gorgeous dress by the way. Next investment: a pair of skates.

  5. I am contemplating acupuncture. I just need to find the right place. You've about convinced me it's the way to go. I love the dress but love even more to hear that your cycle can start sooner than 2011!

  6. That spot between the eyes is fantastic - puts me to sleep most times :) Another point that is great for stress relief is the meaty part between your forefinger and thumb - I press that point at least a couple of times a day!

  7. That's great news from the clinic - and you're inspiring me to try accu!

  8. My ND (Naturopathic Doctor) does my acupuncture. I am unsure whether all ND's also practice acupuncture but there are also tons of clinics to chose from here. I understand the need to find someone you are comfortable with though. They are sticking you with tons of needles!

    Jess, thanks for the online support yesterday! I already have skates so you just worry about getting yourselves a couple of pairs!

    Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement!
