So, this week I slept through the night for the first time in… twenty months at least (hi, adorable toddler), but really for the first time in years. So obviously I want to gab about what happened, which is: I saw a (really good) chiropractor. I figured my shitty sleep was due to having a baby who was a shitty sleeper, and my back pain was due to holding a 26 pound bundle of loves-his-mama-a-LOT. NOT SO. One good whack at my neck and my insomnia left the building. CRAZY RIGHT? Crazy enough that I have to talk about it on the Internet. (For anyone looking for a really solid chiropractor in Oakland, or hell, an amazing acupuncturist in San Francisco, hit me up in the comments.) As always, I’m up to swap alternative medicine stories with anyone and everyone in the comments.
Now, I’m going to cheers the weekend, and hang out on the APW Instagram feed where we’re hosting our first-ever takeover this weekend. We’re letting the crazy and amazing team at Fiat Lux in San Francisco take the reins, which means of a lot of amazing rings… and maybe even some boobs. Who knows? See you there.
Till then, open thread and links!
