Per a couple of people's suggestion, a new post of this journey each time to keep the length of thread reasonable.
Today was number 8 of 39. Lots of alignment problems, sure makes me nervous, hoping they really have it right when I get zapped. Took 45 minutes for today's treatment, and my machine wasn't even busy.
Nausea set in about one hour after I left. Thankful no return of the stomach cramps like I had yesterday. Back home resting.
Still a bit weary of how I will feel further down line if I am already getting this affected.
