Acupuncturist was a @#$#%!
Jeff and I went to my first acupuncture appointment today. I was not impressed. We were both very aprehensive about the procedure in general and she did not help her cause at all. First, we walk into the procedure room and she had an acupuncture needle from someone else sticking out the chair cushion. That completely freaked me out and it just went down hill from there. She starts analyzing my charts (the last ones I did were from the Fall 2007) and said my hormones were all irratic and my progesterone is low and causing major fluctuations in my cycle. I also told her about my miscarriage in which she starts blaming on old blood and comparing my lining to painting over already pealing paint. Not once did she say she was sorry for our loss and blamed it all on my body. I understand that this could be very true and all, but she was just so heartless and insensitive about the whole thing. I left the place feeling horrible about myself and broke down in tears in the car. We did end up buying the Infertility Cure book from her which I plan on reading. If I enjoy the book, I think I am just going to seek out another acupuncturist.
