Massage Therapy or Minor Change in Meds?
I hadn't had any type of physical therapy since about 2000 except for chiropractor due to it never helping, and then chiro stopped too. My body generally and mood especially have been so bad for so long now that I asked my doctor for a referral for massage therapy and went on Tuesday morning, having called in sick to work. Lovely, soft music, serene atmosphere, experienced therapist. Wednesday, I got up feeling even more dreadful, dragged through the day. I still feel bruised in a lot of places that didn't hurt much before. Thursday, same thing, except after lunch it was like a cloud slowly lifting from my being. It took until this morning; I almost bounced out of bed! I read my book all the way to work on the train this morning, normally I read for 5 or 10 minutes and then shut my eyes for the remaining half hour.
I should add here that on Tuesday night, I cut my sleeping pill (triazolam) in four, and took only 3 parts of it, and have continued with that. I've noticed no change whatsoever in my sleep pattern.
Whatever's making the difference, I like it! Hopefully it'll last a very long tmie.
