Random thoughts

My holistic class is still fascinating as ever. We talked about naturapthy, and traditional Chinese Medicine. I got to feel an acupuncture needle, not in my body. No wonder they don't hurt.

We talked about acupressure, and were given a chart with information on the various points. I think this would be cool to learn, but the chart isn't going to be very helpful. I'm not quite sure how to go about learning more of that, but it would be nice to learn if there are any points for pain or nausea I could use on days like today. It also made me realize that there are more areas where I think access needs to be improved for people who are blind.

On a totally unrelated note, I am currently trying to figure out what would be needed for me to care for myself after surgery. Since I have to go to the doctor the Monday afterword, I need to stay at school over the weekend so I can go to biology (assuming I get into it) on Friday. Not ideal, I know, but I'm not worried. I just wonder what would be needed to care for the incision, and whether I can safely do so independently. I think it would be somewhat awkward to walk up to someone and be like "Can you care for my stitches?"
