Bed of Nails UpdateDecember 8, 2011
(For those of you visiting for the first time, I swear I don't talk about acupuncture pillows much. Or ever. Nope, I can pretty safely say I've never done it before this last post. But forgive me -- it's just so awesome!)
I haven't had real neck/shoulder pain since I started using it. The other night I was weaving and I felt the tension start, so I immediately took ten minutes and used it, and the pain was GONE.
Yesterday, though, I got a doozy of a migraine that started in my sinuses (they often start in my neck but not this sneaky bastard). Since I didn't think impaling my face on the pillow would be a prudent (or attractive) idea, I didn't. The migraine came -- I was miserable. But later, after I got the shot at the doctor's office, when I was still nauseous and the pain had lodged in the base of my skull, I used the pillow and both that pain and the nausea subsided.
So for me, I'm still in love. It's not a cure-all (HA! typoed cure-ass first) but it's close.
For your reward, those of you not interested in painful pillows you can't sleep on, here's a picture of the scarf I wove (all handspun):
And what I warped last night (Noro Silk Garden Color S289):
(That's Willie on the floor, back right)
And I'm using this handspun for the weft:
And for those of you who neither spin nor impale yourself on thousands of pointy little pieces of sharp plastic, you can't deny the cutness that is Clementine's tongue:
