It is amazing to me how through the years I have learned that mom's always(ok almost always) know what is best. They just do. As a mother I don't know if I always do but I do know that there are just times when I feel real strongly about something that is real important for my kids and it has been the right thing. I hope that as I continue being a mom, that my kids can feel like I always know what is best.
This brings me to the reason for my blog. As you know from one of my previous blogs I have been dealing with a lot of pain lately and last week on Sunday was the first day that I have had that I could really say that I was feeling ok. Well, on Monday night the pain started in my lower back. I have had this before but it has been a while so I thought I just need to my back exercises and I will be fine. I started doing them and it just continued to get worse and worse. On Tuesday and Wednesday when I went to school I truly didn't know how I was going to make it back to the car and I was in that much pain even after taking a 800 mg of motrin. I don't know how to describe it without just saying it was awful.
My mom had been telling me for a couple of weeks, just go in the chiropractor and he will help you. At least try it, he might be able to do something. On Wednesday I was in so much pain in every step that I gave in and called a chiropractor. I have always been quite skeptical of them so I still wasn't sure. Mike was able to go with me so that helped. I just have to tell you that when I walked out of his office I felt like a new woman. I had hardly any pain at all. I could walk. After having that much pain for that long, it truly gives you a new aspect on life. I was feeling like I was looking at life for the first time. I felt good for Wednesday night but it popped out by Thursday and I was back in pain. I ended up going in again today and he did the same thing. I know it will probably be a little bit of time until I won't have to go back in but I just have to say my mother always knows best. Thanks MOM.
