“Just Being Jana” –

August 5th, 2013 Comments off
Jana20-150x150I need to set a scene for this story… Picture a dark hospital room….2am….Pleasantly relaxed with Morphine…..Enter a Medical Professional… And in place of the female anatomy word she was using let’s just call it an “Easter Bunny”… MED PRO: Good Morning, How are we feeling today? ME: I’m good…little sore MED PRO: That’s to be expected. I’m here to remove your Catheter.. ME: *Puzzled…I..Don’t…Have One? MED PRO: Yes mam, you do.  ME: *Morphine high & puzzled…I’m pretty sure it’s gone because I have been going to the bathroom…Although it is a little difficult at times… Why is it? Why is it difficult to go to the bathroom?  MED PRO: That’s because they packed your “Easter Bunny” ME: Blank Stare…. I’m sorry they did what to my “Easter Bunny”? MED PRO: They pack your “Easter Bunny” in surgeries like this. ME: What does my “Easter Bunny” have to do with my Esophagus? MED PRO: Well not much.. ME: Ok…I’m lost.. They fixed my Esophagus…Why would they even be in the neighborhood of my “Easter Bunny”? MED PRO: *Looking at her chart….You had a hysterectomy, right? ME: Ummm…Nope.  MED PRO: It’s early…I’m sorry. You are fine. It’s early. We don’t have to pack anything… ME: Good to know… *I never saw that MED PRO again but the next little girl that came in to check on me later chuckled and asked…”How’s your “Easter Bunny”?

How Acupuncture Works

webmd_rm_photo_of_pressure_pointsHow Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture seeks to release the flow of the body’s vital energy or “chi” by stimulating points along 14 energy pathways.

Scientists say the needles cause the body to release endorphins — natural painkillers — and may boost blood flow and change brain activity.

Skeptics say acupuncture works only because people believe it will, an effect called the placebo effect.
