I made it to knitting group last Wednesday, a really wonderful group of women. I walked in as everyone was introducing themselves and saying what useful device they would create. One device would rearrange chi, another make coworkers decide to retire, and a couple were knitting related. Then it was my turn and the device was obvious: it would stop my chronic pain.
I've been feeling awful all week and weekend with high pain, no energy and my right arm going numb. I was tired and needed to be around people so was glad to make the knitting group. I only stayed for an hour and wasn't able to talk much. As I got ready to leave, though, a lovely chorus of goodbyes rang out! I felt so loved and accepted for me in that moment. I'm terribly grateful for my knitting group. It's the group of women I've been hoping to find for years.
