OK, I am, like, sooooo tired of you WCA people running around here and acting like a big bunch of know-it-alls. It makes me sick! “Oh, we’re WCA. I’m Lisa and I’m Skip. We started community acupuncture. We have a staff of ten. We see 430 patients a week and gross over a quarter million a year. We’ve been doing this since Clinton was in office. We hunted moose with Sarah Palin and you didn’t!” Well, what do you know?! If I’ve learned anything since I opened my CA clinic three months ago, I’ve learned that there is more than one way to run a CA and you can’t tell me how to do it! It’s my life and you can’t tell me what to do! If I want to have five chairs and read aloud excerpts from my dogeared copy of The Secret while they’re trying to sleep, I’ll do it! It’s just like they taught us at school, acupuncture knowledge has evolved a lot over time and CA will continue to evolve as well…through ME! I am the evolution of CA. At school we learned how to approach a patient from a million different perspectives and the same can be done for CA. I don’t care if there isn’t one single example of a truly kick ass, self-sustaining practice that deviates from the WCA model. Why should that stop me from practicing CA the way I want to? And yeah, I’ve started smoking!
So stay out of my room and don’t read my diary! If I want to stay out all night I’m gonna and there’s nothing you can do to stop me! If you try, I’ll run so far away you’ll never see me again! Assholes!
