Holy Hiccups!!!

I’ve just hd hiccups for over an hour! Here’s a call out: what’s the longest you’ve ever had hiccups? Has it kept you awake?

A hiccup is an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm that can occur several times a minute. Hiccups are involuntary an often tend to lend an annoying presence in your day!

So far, I’ve tried to hold my breath, taking deep drinks and holding my breath some more.

Way back in 2001, I had the owner of the business I managed who told me that drinking a cup of water with a plastic knife on it would help to “cut the hiccups out”. I never understood it, but man, did it work.

Sometimes, some of the things we face in life require a little faith. We don’t always have to know WHY it works, we simply have to close our eyes and accept that it will. The same applies to many of the mysteries of our lives. Sometimes, we have to close our eyes and jump off the ledge, knowing that “all things happen for a reason.”

I am a practitioner of the martial arts and student of the Buddhist faith. I have been a Type 1 Diabetic since I was 4 years old and have been fighting the uphill battle it includes ever since. I enjoy fitness and health and looking for new ways to improve both, as well as examining the many questions of life. Although I have no formal medical training, I have amassed a wealth of knowledge regarding health, Diabetes, martial arts as well as Buddhism and philosophy. My goal is to share this information with the world, and perhaps provide some sarcastic humour along the way. Welcome!
