I (1) love (4) you (3). Get it?
Chinese New Years is right around the corner. The 10th to be exact.
My acupuncturist flew back to China to celebrate with her family and it really means she won’t be around for 2 weeks.
I remember feeling extremely paranoid when she told me.
“WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITHOUT YOU?”
What if my face becomes red again?
What if my neck and chest start to get blisters?
What if my face and ears start oozing?
Being extremely blunt and straightforward, she told me to ‘relax’ since I’m making strides in recovering from TSW.
“You should slowly stop relying on me and acupuncture and learn how to walk by yourself again.”
Before leaving, I heard her tell my mom to tell me that things should largely be OK if I continue to drink the soup and maintain the dietary restrictions.
With that being said, I had a hugeee craving for ice cream (cold), french fries (fried) and sashimi (seafood) today.
Yours truly will have to stave off these cravings until at least she comes back.
I mean, if I screw up no one will be there to save me.
If she finds out I strayed, I will get a verbal beating.
It feels so wrong yet feels so right.
My heart says yes but my head says no.
This isn’t rocket science though.
The only reason I no longer experience the all too familiar symptoms of rashy, oozing, itchy, red skin is all because of her.
In other words, don’t screw up.
