I was about twelve years old when I first heard about acupuncture. My best friend Erin had mentioned to me that she had a treatment. She was having terrible migraine headaches and said her body hurt all the time. When the doctors finally diagnosed her with fibromyalgia they gave her western pharmaceutical drugs to ease the pain. Her headaches were so bad that the drugs had to be at very high levels to do their job. At these levels it made it very hard for Erin to participate in normal daily activities. Eventually she became home schooled. After a while of trying different things, Erin came across acupuncture. She tried it, and loved it. She said it helped her tremendously. When I was in high school I began to see acupuncture as a career opportunity. I tried it myself, read up on it, and I knew that this is what I want to do with my life.
Searching online for acupuncture colleges, I found the Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCTCM). It was a perfect match for me. I needed some college credits and certain requirements before I would be allowed admittance, so I found a college with a strong medical program in nursing and off I went. After getting all my requirements out of the way I went and studied at TCTCM. I have a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from TCTCM.
