I did get up this morning,honest. I made breakfast and coffee at 7.45 which we had in bed. Then my husband went off to work and some how I am still here in my bed!
I have read through a lot of very interesting blog posts. I have found a lovely recipe for pastitcio and discovered that the best way to preserve peppers is frozen in glass jars! Who knew!. I have been introduced to a fascinating life in Amish country. So much accomplished already and its not even 9.30 yet!
But seriously I do feel really well and full of energy. I have suffered with neck pains and migraines for 11 years now, since a car accident. I have taken pain killers by the cart load for most of that time and amitrytiline on a daily basis for a the last few years. A few weeks back you might remember my mum sent me to a chiropractor, for the very sensible reason that one of the ladies at the swimming pool suggested it might help,if I didn't mind a bit of short term pain (agony).
Well I am inclined to think that things happen for a reason. The chiro has worked on my neck and got everything moving again (there are still bone spurs but that's not reversible). This is tempting fate but I can say I have had only one headache is the last 2.5 weeks and am completely off all of the medication. I have so much more energy. She also did some work on my lower back having spotted that one of my hips pointed to the side. I don't have a 'funny walk (who knew) anymore and more importantly I can actually walk again within trapping the nerve that gives me the numbness I normally experience.
Lastly the chiro also spotted something on my xray that might not be so good. Obviously I am not madly happy about having this (consultation is on Tuesday so we find it is a problem then)but if I have it then of course I prefer to know it and have the necessary treatment.
Without all of those drugs and all of those pains I can truly say I feel fantastic, even with the other problem hanging over me. I have so much energy( so why am I still in bed?? that doesn't count, I am reading) It is no exaggeration to say that visiting the chiropractor has changed my life. Thank you Mum! Its true that mothers know best, especially mine.
