"Observe the intelligence in your pelvis..."
This, among other intelligent body parts, were to be observed during our afternoon relaxation time in Pain Management Class, Level 3. i had a difficult time remaining relaxed, because this is what my intelligent brain wanted to say: "BwahHAHHAHHAH!"
Phew. There. Now i feel better having gotten that out.
i registered in the Kaiser clinic, and sat around in the waiting room trying to guess when people came in whether or not they were in pain class. "Hmmm...they're definitely wearing workout clothes...and tying shoes...could be." (They weren't.) "That guy is DEFinitely not in the class--those are jeans, and that's just a regular sweater." (He was.)
So the two guys and i were called into the class for an orientation session before being joined by the others already in the class. That only meant 3 or 4 other women, all in various week stages of the class--one in her 5th and final week, another in week 3, that sort of thing.
It seemed like we did an awful lot of relaxing/meditating--i'm already pretty sedate, and the 2nd of those, what with trying to stifle my giggles, was less relaxing. The session we had learning accupressure was pretty cool--i definately want to explore that some more.
There are rules upon rules, as i mentioned in my previous post about the class, one big one being "Keep it positive!" meaning we are not to talk about our pain, or say anything in lunch time that might bring up thoughts of medical things to others--to the point that we can't even say, "i had to take my dog to the vet's." We newbies just sat for a while, eating and looking furtively at the others, wondering if we dared to talk. i've never thought about my words so hard in my life!!
Anyway, stay tuned, and i'll let you know what other intelligent parts of me i need to listen to. Hoping my pelvis doesn't start talking back.
