“I love the pain I feel when the sharp needle pierces my skin. Not because I love pain… well, maybe. But as soon as a session starts, it forces you to let go of all past and future thoughts. It forces you to live in the moment; it forces you to find a way to deal with the very present and intense pain. Although it hurts… a LOT!… It’s a much better feeling than the existing, and far too familiar, pain of past scars and the ever-present anxiety of future worries ….. My Church… Amen.”
