My neck & back...

I've always had a bad back, neck and head. I started having migrains when I was 12, and back problems ever since I can remember. Every chiropractor has asked if I've been in a car accident, and every time I've replied no, they've been shocked. I've gone off and on for years, but mostly just delt with constant pain because I could never afford to continue the length of time they wanted me to see them. It's just become too much over the years and I've been constantly pulling muscles and life has been really crappy. My sleep has been horrible, my headaches obnoxious and I just couldn't deal with non stop piercing pain for months at a time. I just prayed things would heal and get better and it would take months for relief to come. I would have smaller episodes, but the ones where I couldn't lift my head off the pillow for a month or turn for weeks without pain, was just getting to be too much. I was always hurting myself while lifting totes in the shed or pulling something that never seemed to heal the same. I FINALLy started seeing Brother Gunnel at church this past week and my last muscle pull is getting better. My neck is still sore from my episode a month ago, but I pray twice a week will help get me straightened out again. I can't take it anymore and now my motto is: I can't afford not too. I want to feel better and I deserve that. My kids deserve more and as much as I do in a day, I deserve to move without taking a million Advil just to survive.
