NICE AND BIG SURPRISE

Well, here we are at the end of the week. I tried to post the other day but blogger wasn't up so I forgot it again until today.
On my very first visit to the chiropractor they did these electric shock things that feel like a small massage in place. pulling and pushing the skin around in a circle.
Then the doc did some pressure point pokes and sent me home. That was Weds. On Thurs morning I had three things: The bad news the good news and the OMG news.
The bad news was I woke up at 2:30 am and was still awake @ 5:30 am. There was some pain in my neck and lower back and I just couldn't drift off again.
The good news was I could lift my right arm over my head......I haven't been able to do that since the accident.
The OMG news.....I took my own shower with no help!
So fastforwards to today. Third treatment right? I should be pain free. LOL YEAH RIGHT she says sarcastically. But in all honesty I am doing much better than even the chiropractor thought I'd be doing at this point. So I will keep on going and keep on with what ever they tell me to do and maybe at some point in just a few weeks I wont have to go back to the chiropractor. Wish me well.

The electrical thingy is a Tens machine. I have one. Lori stopped going to her chiropractor since putting one on her was all he did. I've never used it (it was for my wife), but Lori swears by it.

I go to the chiropractor every week and its the best decision I ever made. I would recommend keeping up the appointments even when you do "feel" better.

I'm so glad you are doing better. It has to suck to be dependent on others for your basic care.

Hugs to you!

Sorry for visiting so late. I have been spending way to much time watching TV as I got all 144 episodes of 24. I am trying to watch all episodes before the show starts up again on November 24.

I am so glad you are doing better. With luck hopefully you will be good as new and maybe a little better. One can only hope.
