ticklish

I’ve been looking forward to the getting into the cervical vertebrae  manipulations in OPP because my neck is all sorts of messed up. (See here for x-rays of my spine. :O I managed to eff over both secondary curvatures.) I’m sure it’s gotten a whole lot better since 2005, but if I were to venture a guess, I’m pretty sure the curvature still isn’t quite back to where it’s supposed to be yet. (It feels awfully straight, but I suppose that’s an improvement from going in the opposite direction.)

What sucks, however, is the fact that I am wildly ticklish. :[ Therein lies a serious problem. How are you supposed to treat people who are super ticklish?

You use their own fingers on themselves, because your brain anticipates and registers that it’s you poking at yourself, so it tells your sensory fibers that they don’t need to care!

You can, however, tickle yourself if you have any of the following:
1) schizophrenia
2) tertiary syphillis
3) rabies

Good to know.
