thankfully not the puking, flu-type sick
just a wicked head-weighs-200-pounds kind of cold, sick.
i blame my weekend.
i had way too much fun.
i went to D.C. to visit my friend Melissa
(we call her Quick...cuz that's her last name)
with my friend Jen
(we call her Jen)
both ladies are recently engaged and we decided some wedding dress shopping was in order
and some dancing
and maybe also some mid-day champagne-drinking
no big deal
i took my camera
and horrible photographer, lacking in dedication, that i am
didn't take a single picture
all i have to show for my weekend in DC are these two photos.
taken by an iPhone
and not even mine
|friends don't let friends drink coffee alone|
|me with wine-colored lips and a freshly darkened 'do. and jen and quick. (:|
i live with a doctor.
and not just any doctor
i don't know if you know what an osteopath is
and i'll tell you much more fully at a later date
when i'm not almost late for work
(side note: hospitals are terrible places to get better.
both when you work there AND when you're a patient there.
the patients don't get better because no one lets them SLEEP
forever poking and prodding at all hours of the day and night.
and the employees don't get better
because of the patients.)
suffice it to say, for now
that an osteopath is like an M.D. *plus*
we can go into any medical specialty we like
and we also have this additional arsenal of tools we can use to help people heal
many of which are currently coming into play
tools like, massage of trigger points
realignment of misaligned vertebrae
stimulation of lymphatic pathways to facilitate their drainage
i just realized i don't have time to go into all this at the moment
more about osteopathic medicine later
i'll just be putting it into practice
