closer

Last night J and I had a date night, not really but we were alone without the kids. Rewind about 2 weeks ago to the corn fest. One of the booths was a chiropractor that did assessments and x rays for $20. Me and the 4 kids went and had our backs checked and x rayed. Last night was the meeting to discuss what was found from all the information collected two weeks ago. We sat and talked to this doctor for about 45 minutes going over all the things she found. Let's just say my back is messed up. Probably due to giving birth to 4 kids and being in car accidents. What I didn't expect was how bad Monkey and GG's x rays were no wonder they have sinus problems and migraine headaches. Red wasn't too bad but he still didn't have the best possible spine position. I feel like I am getting closer to figure out what is wrong and seeing how messed up my spine is is a huge step in the right direction. Your spinal cord sends out all the messages to the rest of your body and if it is not in the proper position your body can't function at its maximum potential. Another exciting thing is that I have switched primary doctor's to J's doctor who he LOVES. Well I called to make my first appointment and they told me he wasn't taking new patients like they told me last time and I explained how J had talked to him and he is expecting me as a new patient. YAY. J went into the office today to pick up the new patient packet and medical release forms for my old doctor. When he was in he asked my new doctor how he felt about chiropractors and he was very positive about them and he wants to help me get a referral so we don't have to pay thousands of dollars to get me better!!! If we can get referrals for the kids too that would be awesome. I feel like GG should not be having migraines at her age and if the chiropractor can help I'm all for it.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that the chiropractor can fix you guys up.

Sounds like you're on to something there! Hoping the chiro really helps. Esp. with you, and esp. with GG's migraines- she's just too young to have to deal with those monsters right now!

I'm all for chiropractors!!

19 posts? You just now got them? Weird! I didn't post them all at once, I usually post 1-3 times a week and only one post per day. I was wondering where you've been! :) Anyway, I really hope you have success with chiropractic care and that you'll notice a difference in how you feel very soon!!

I like the change, but you need to lighten up the color of the text. It is hard to read. Try a light gray.
