Bet you expected to see the word "Spanking" at the end of the title. Well, I will discuss spanking, but not until a bit further in this post.
When I was teaching years ago, I always felt the stress of the job. It's just part of the profession. Oh, there are a few teachers who would say with saccherine sweetness that just being around all those precious children was such a joy and that they felt relaxed and at ease as they filled those little minds with nuggets of wisdom. But I only met a couple women like this who were so delusional that they farted rainbows. And I will tell you honestly that they were not very good teachers. The kids usually ran the classroom, and it was chaos. The really good teachers I knew loved their kids and loved teaching despite working long hours at school and then taking work home at night and on the weekends.
Then throw in a plethora of useless meetings, a few student behavior problems, federal guidelines, state mandates, non-existent budgets for supplies, and I will stop there. After I left teaching for a 9 to 5 job, I felt like I was on vacation.
You get the idea. Stress was a big deal for many years. When you feel stress, there is actually a chemical reaction occurring in your body. Your heart rate quickens, muscles tense, and your breathing becomes faster. Too much to do and not enough time. I never took this out on the children, but I carried the stress around looking for ways to unload the it. Exercise helps. But one day I read an article about how some people go to an acupuncturist to relieve their stress. Traditional acupuncture involves the belief that a "life force" circulates within the body in lines called meridians. It sounded a bit scary with the needles and all, but after several other teachers touted its benefits, I decided to take the plunge.
I made an appointment with a lovely Chinese doctor named Dr. Chen, who came recommended from a friend. We talked a long time on the first visit. She took a regular medical history, and we talked about what acupuncture is meant to do. Dr. Chen also gave me some interesting things to read. Then she had me remove or loosen some clothing and lay on the table. She made me perfectly comfortable with pillows and her very soft and gentle voice. Then she showed me what the needles look liked. This first time I was very nervous when I saw how long they were.
It was amazing to me that there was hardly any discomfort. She would wipe a cotton ball moistened with alcohol on a spot before she deftly inserted the needle There were a few places where she would tell me to take a deep breath and hold it for a second. The needles were on my head, face, ears, arms, hands, stomach, legs, and feet. Obviously I was laying perfectly still. Dr. Chen made sure I was comfortable, dimmed the lights, and put on some very soft music. Then she left, saying she would check on me soon.
Within a few minutes, I felt almost like I was having an out of body experience. The relaxation became deeper and deeper until I felt like my mind had separated from my body. Like you could hold it in your hands. Had never had an episode like that before. It was heavenly. I was dimly aware that the doctor was back in the room. She gently put her hand on my shoulder and asked in a murmur if everything was all right. I made a soft little sound of assent, and she was gone again.
I was never sure of how much time was passing when she left me alone. Probably close to 30 minutes, I think. When it was time to end the session, she would bring the lights back up slowly and remove the needles, again using a cotton ball. The first time I had this done, she spent time talking to me about how I felt and making sure it had been a positive experience. It had been, and I felt like every bit of stress in my body had melted away.
Needless to say, I booked another appointment. Although I had weekly appointments for the first month, I soon had the sessions scheduled for once every 4 weeks. It was relatively expensive, even though my health insurance covered some of it. I think I was paying about $75 per visit. At that time I really couldn't afford more than once a month.
Dr. Chen was very helpful to me after my series of strokes. Once I was able to drive, I went back to her. She chose other sites for the needles depending what you told her was going on in your life. I saw her on and off for many years.
Then, in the summer of 2014, I finally got the courage to tell Sam who I really was. Of course it was several months before we were up and running in a sort of ttwd learning period. It was even longer before Sam ever thought about spanking me when he saw me all worked up and heading toward a meltdown. I really can't even remember (common for me) the exact circumstances, but he spanked me because I was stressed out. And something magic happened.
Oh, my, I thought, All the stress is gone.
I felt that same peace and positive feeling that Dr. Chen provided with her needles and voice and restful lighting and music. I didn't know whether to kiss Sam or write him a check for $75. He had his own brand of aftercare. He pulled me onto his lap and held me for as long as I wanted.
"That was wonderful, honey. Thanks so much.
I feel worlds better," I said softly.
All my hard edges were gone, and I was smiling. I even remembered that amazing feeling during the middle of a long, slow spanking where you kind of lose yourself. Very much like that out of body feeling that gave me so much pleasure.
Again, I am sorry that I cannot say for sure if I went down on Sam after that first stress relief spanking. Pretty sure I did. I always think it is the very best way to say thank you to my guy. He seems to think so, too. I believe it was shortly after this wonderful spanking that I ordered a book titled:
Blow Him Away: How to Give Him Mind-Blowing Oral Sex.
Three important things came out of these chapters of our ttwd life.
- Saved $75 a month - easy, peasy.
- Ella became a much more relaxed woman.
- Sam became a much more motivated spanker.
|Thank you, Sam. You take good care of me.|
