I've never felt that kind of pain on my spine. The needle seemed to hit my nerves at times, though I know that's not the case. As painful as it was, I didn't feel nauseous like I did the first time. But I did bleed quite a bit.
I'm bandaged now to keep from staining everywhere. I can't look at it until tomorrow. Then I'll know whether it was worth so much money and irritation.
I'm going to bed with a burning spine and an ancient piece of art permanently etched into my skin.
