So, you may notice that I can barely keep my head up in these photos, or maybe you are just totally distracted by my fluffy hair, but either way, this was an outfit I threw on after having the weirdest day EVER. I went to get acupuncture for the first time after suffering from chronic allergies/sinus infections/super sore throat for the past few months. I was told that I need to have my tonsils out, but I am willing to do nearly anything to avoid surgery again. I thought that maybe I needed some restoration of balance or something, and that acupuncture would be relaxing at the very least. Well, as soon as the needles were in, I felt a wash of anxiety, followed by…nothing…then the Dr. was waking me up saying I had passed out, complete with eye rolling and face-twitching. Of course then I really freaked out, and had to lay there sweating and recovering for a while. As I was leaving, I was given a few vitamins to take “to make me stronger” but on the drive home (as if having some kind of panic seizure wasn’t enough) I had to stop to throw them up. All in all, it was a very uncomfortable experience. Have any of you tried acupuncture and had anything like this happen to you?
I felt better after a few hours of couch time, and got dressed to go out to celebrate the cameraman’s new job. Navy on navy was all I could muster. I added the red earrings for a touch of color, and the loafers because there was no way I was putting on anything that would make it harder to walk!
