Torpid Reaction

I went on a six mile hike (almost 7) during yesterday’s moon day. It was not rugged terrain but uneven enough. By mid afternoon I was whimpering when I had to go upstairs or rise from my chair. I decided to do a 15 minute oil bath followed by a salt bath. Some relief, but it hurt to toss and turn like I do all night long. After a restless night and still very sore I decide to go for a 10:30 mixed level class which is really a half primary. Tough salutations but heat and sweat do wonders. As I am arranging myself in Padmasana, I look at my ankle and see what looks like a deer tick. I am convinced that I am still a prime candidate for any cult indoctrination, because I actually thought: Should I finish my 26 breaths or squeeze this mofo out right now? I started my slow breathing then called myself a bad word and started squeezing. It was a darn tick that I put on my towel to dispose of later and did Utpluthi. Good girl syndrome can really mess you bad.

  1. did it bite you??? LYMES DISEASE AHHHHHHHHHH. Might want to get it checked however I am just remembering that it takes something like 48hours for the little bastards to infect you. I live in terror of Lymes.

    • I read 36 hours. I don’t have a red mark and it came off real easy. I put some peroxide on and a layer of coconut oil ( I’m thinking disinfectant with antifungal, why? No idea) I cannot believe that thing did not drown in the castor oil yesterday.

  2. well if it popped out easily then it did! I rid the corgiyogi of them by a thick coating of petroleum jelly which suffocates them and makes it easy to remove the next day.
