I don't know what to make of this. I was excited about the possibility that this was all in my
I've had so many metabolic profiles run...all of them coming back with stellar results. One of my doctors assured me I had almost no risk of other autoimmune disorders, cancer, or organ damage/failure based on those results. So what gives?
If I go to the chiropractor and he heals the blockage in my mid-back, am I going to be super human? According to him, I will be so much healthier. I'll hardly get sick. I'll have so much energy. Okay, I could deal with extra energy, but seriously...ever since I cut the junk out of my diet, I haven't been sick once. Not once! Need I remind you that I frequent grocery stores, doctor's offices, playgrounds, preschools, and every other grimy place that germs hang out. And I'm lazy, so I really don't wash my hands all that well...or that often. But I feel better than I ever have before (minus the numbness, dizziness, etc). My actual body is more alive than it's ever been. I'm faster, I'm stronger, I can do handstands!!
So as I'm in his office listening to how my metabolism will increase, my body will heal itself and I'll feel better than I have in years, I'm wondering how many bottles of snake oil I'll need to buy in order to be healed. I really am horrible, but I heard him out. I let him crack my neck, back, and hips. I even signed up for an appointment next Monday.
By nature, I'm a quitter. I really am serious about trying to get better, so I'm willing to give it another go. I don't feel any better or worse after this first treatment. I had to set the next appointment for him to discuss with me an exercise plan. Why couldn't we discuss it today, I asked? Because
I'm so googling how to fix my own neck and working from there. I'm suspicious of the middle back scan, but I will go on Monday, get cracked again, and hear about my new exercise routine. Don't doctors know that when you prescribe exercise, nobody ever does it? Oh wait, I actually do! Bring it on!
What's the worst that could happen...aside from twisting my spine way out of shape? I'm going to be out a few dollars? Okay...that's bad! Seriously though, the MRIs and tests and visits to all the other doctors have cost me alot. If I could run this away, I would, but since I can't I'm willing to give it another shot. I'll keep you posted.
