Again: I am not indestructible

As I experienced last week on the backseat of my OJEK-driver: I am doing okay and getting better, but I am far from being the old me already.

I followed a quite good and slow yoga-video for Multiple Sclerosis and doing the unused poses for the first time was freakin´hard and I bursted out in sweat and losing my balance.

Can somebody show me a shortcut, please?

Learning to walk again with MS

Its hard and definitely not easy, but I keep on learning. This morning I tried to “run” again and realized very quick (to be more specific “at the first step”) my body seems to have forgotten how running works. So I decided to give me and my body more time.

Its all baby-steps, you know?

Quite often I feel like a new born baby and before a baby can run, it needs to walk. So I keep on trying. Walking without the support of my walking-stick was a good and important decision.

Sweet Pain

Is it true? A very friendly and quite young man has putten around 25 needles in my body, told me to relax and wait 35 minutes. Then he left the “cabin”. Around me just a language I roughly identified as Chinese and some rather unidentifiable sounds. Afterwards an assistant(?) removed the needles and I paid 200k Rupiah to the man stitching the needles all over my body.

Sounds like Acupuncture, right?

Darn right. It was the second acupuncture-treatment of my life and even though it hurried a bit, it feels… well… quite okay good so far.

What you CAN`T see

…are the needles in my head, in my legs and in my arms. Lets pray for the higher cause!

Namaste

It’s not the meditation and it’s not the yoga. It’s not the jamu, it’s not the fruits and it’s not Bali or Indonesia.

It’s much more, it’s the sum of it all together. I don’t want to call it holistic, because it’s not, but the mind working together with the body, is important and finally I am starting to feel a bit(!) better.
