And by “Frankenstein’s monster”, I mean that I had to get hooked up to an electric current to “come alive” today.  Is that a weak connection? Maybe.
I had another chiropractor appointment today.  First he destroyed me with his hands.  Then he stabbed with some needles.  Then he stabbed with more needles, and hooked up an electric current to them.  I don’t think I have a very accurate concept of pain due to all those years of slamming my head body into other people and various other activities, because I guess he turned it up waaaay high before I considered it a “strong” pain feeling. Then he turned it down a tad, and left me there for 15 minutes.  Let’s just say that electroacupuncture isn’t the best feeling.  At first it was okay, but then it got a whole lot worse (probably because I kept tensing up).  Finally the nurse came in and took it off, wiped off some blood, and sent me on my merry way.  Unfortunately Sam had the truck today, so I had to ride my bike home, which didn’t help much either!  It’s going to be sore for a while!
I’m very glad to have such a good chiropractor, though.  He thinks that I’ll be able to start working my lower body in maybe two more visits, and that might even include running.  My fingers are crossed.  Sometimes I’m not a huge fan of going on a run, to be honest, but now that I don’t have it anymore I sure miss it!
Anyway, that’s the update.   Next time he’s going to look at my knee some more, which has been messed up since early high school.

Oh, and I get to wear this dealio for a while too:

Fancy pedicure toe-thinger?
