Even though I have not wanted to believe I have fibromyalgia, as well as scoliosis, I probably do. About 15 years ago, I was diagnosed with it here in Seattle. Maybe I was in denial, but I rarely mention it to Western MD’s, massage practitioners, naturopaths, physical therapists, etc. Having scoliosis is enough of a burden.
I realized that I am not doing enough Yi Ren Qigong. Monday I did about 30 minutes in the morning and then 15 minutes later in the day. On Tuesday I practiced with a friend for about an hour. Wednesday I practiced 15 minutes and today I did not practice at all. I will never get well, if I don’t apply myself and do this work. But, I am working too hard. Today I work 3 hours at the computer and then drove up north and worked 3 more hours on my feet making art, playing fiddle and singing to two separate groups of elders. I was in so much pain then, that I had to drive all the way home and get pain medication. It was my 60th birthday and I wanted to go to my birthday gathering with my family. But, I was in pretty bad shape even with the medication. I can only hope that I sleep tonight. I am so very tired. Then, I will get up while it is cool and do my qigong in the back yard. So, off to bed for me! Namaste!
