I finally did it I went for the needle to relieve the pain. I've tried all sorts of drugs but never the needle. I know many people use the needle not only for the pain but to help them deal with so many other problems in their lives and most become addicted to using the needle. I had to try something I had to make the pain go away. I've only tried it once but I'm sure I'll be back for more. When the needle went in it stung and then a slow burn started travelling over my skin. The burn gave way to numbness and then there was only this dull heavy feeling. The payback is that now I ache from where the needle entered. I don't know why anyone would want to go through the initial pain for such short term relief. I long for that dull comfortable numb even now. You do realise I'm talking about the use of the ancient art of Chinese acupuncture???? Geesh you people!!!
