I told him that I was seeing an acupuncturist for my pulled hamstring and my anxiety. He was highly offended and told me he would have treated me if he'd known I was going to go to someone else. And when did I come up with-this idea? Hmm ... let's see, way back when he had his other office mgr, about 10 yrs ago. And what was I supposed to do, threaten him with-going to a competitor? Seemed logical that every few wks/mo's I would just nicely ask him again if he would treat me. Now, conveniently, he tells me he didn't think it would work for my hamstring anyway. But there was no explicit conversation to that. It was just the basic, please and "no" response. I am working on a mural in the children's area of his ofc and have not finished it. He quipped, "How would you feel if I hired another artist to finish the mural you started but never got around to finishing?" I said, "Fine, if I told you that you'd go into shock and have dire health consequences if I worked on it any more." . He wouldn't speak to me the rest of the evening or this a.m. It's all about ego and nothing to do with-health. I'll just let him go into his man-cave for awhile.
