I haven’t posted lately because… I’ve been too busy trying to make appointments for therapy massages and chiropractor visits. I’m a mess, you guys. Limiting my time behind this ole’ computer screen ensures that when I’m sitting down I’m also working. See that photo to the left? My favorite brother commented, “I do believe that’s the thinnest I’ve ever seen you.” Think I’ll have sympathy in my heart for him again? I’d say… doubtful.
Until about 2 weeks ago I swore I’d never visit a chiropractor. Ever. Now… I can’t wait to get there even though I’ve yet to see much improvement. The neck cracking thing? Still not used to that totally unnatural sound and wish I could skip over that part, but I try to think of something else and know it’s over quickly. I was surprised to find that my neck is a problem along with my sciatica issue. My neck feels just fine.
And for the record… for those of you that may not have had a chiropractic experience, please don’t think that a therapy massage is like any other massage you’ve ever had. It’s not a spa. It isn’t relaxing or fun. Once I’m on my stomach and can no longer see the cute 100 pound female about to do the “massage” I would swear she’s a sumo wrestler with elbows made of steel. Still… I have about an hour before my appointment, and I’m counting the minutes.
I’m doing this with determination like a BOSS. Here’s pretty much what I look like heading for the torture chair and my next adjustment:
