Stick a pin in me, I'm done

I'm going to get accupuncture today. I've always wanted to know what it was like, and now I get to find out.

I've had a lingering dry cough that's come and gone for the past 8 years. It's the worst at work where I have to sit all day and can't move around, but it follows me everywhere. I've been to several doctors and specialists over the years to try to get to the bottom of it but they just prescribe more inhalers, nasal sprays, and even the little purple pill called Nexium (in the belief that my cough might be caused by acid reflux). I don't know what to believe. I really have no idea what causes me to cough. Asthma, bronchitis, GERD.... who the hell knows.

I'm giving Chinese medicine a shot. Maybe needles and herbs will help me where pills and sprays have not.
Here's hoping.
