What’s in a name…?

For the past 10 years I’ve been an acupuncturist. 

During those 10 years I have treated some amazing people and I adored watching the acupuncture do the thing it does so well – either removing pain, clearing symptoms of disease or possibly the most amazing, helping couples to become families. 

I have laughed with patients a lot in that time and cried once or twice too. I have also made a lot of friends.

However, the past year has left me feeling a little deflated with it. Not the patienty/painy/needley bit, but more the paperworky/self-employedy/adminy bit. Tie this disquiet in with Dads diagnosis and I have decided to depart the world of therapist. 

My regulars have now mostly been told, the website is offline, my replacement is waiting in the wings, and I am ready to ditch the HUGE diary I have been carrying round for what seems like forever! 

I shall keep up to date and insured ‘just in case’ but ‘acupuncturist’ will soon become a teeny part of who I am as opposed to my main title. Feels weird binning a name that I’ve known myself as for so long!
