well... around here it is anyways. For me, that is. I'm a thirty something woman with a (twice) herniated disc, thorasic outlet syndrome in my right shoulder and I've recently found out that I have arthritis in my right hip. Enough already. I'm ready to say the hell with all of this and start fighting back!
I want to go on pain free walks with my children in this unseasonably warm winter weather... I want to pretend to ride broomsticks with Iris and her new pretend play characture of the month "KiKi". I want to get down on the floor with Sage and build Lego towers and ships and grand species of Bionicles made from all the Bionicle parts combined.
I want to just make it through the day without needing to sit and rest, or lay down and rest or without. stopping. at. all.
So- what is my plan? Well... I have no idea, but I'm not ready to be this old. I'm not ready to let my body go the way of specialists and surgeons.
My first step is to go see my neighbor, who is a chiropractor with fancy decompression machines. He is a wonderful, caring man- as is his wonderful caring wife and I am going to start by putting my trust into their methods.
