There is not a lot I can say about my back pain other than it hurt and burned. It was an ache that was persistent, and I had pretty much figured it would always be there. It never fully went away, but I had some days that were far better than others. Some days the pain was so bad that I could not get comfortable standing, sitting or lying down. I have been to doctors who prescribed me painkillers that upset my stomach. My neighbor pushed me into going to a chiropractor in Camas WA for treatment.
It was my first experience with chiropractic medicine, and I was not holding out any hope of it actually doing me any good. Continue reading Getting Some Help for Chronic Back Pain That Just Would Not Go Away
What do you get for a person who has everything? Usually, it is really great when someone does not need something, because that means they are living a pretty blessed life. It only turns into a problem when someone else has to buy that person a gift for a special occasion. That was the predicament I found myself in just about anytime a special occasion has come up for my mom. This year though, I am not going to struggle for something to get her for Christmas. I am going to look at huge Cyber Monday iPad deals and hopefully get one for her at a great price.
If my mom knew how to use an iPad, she would already have one, no doubt. Continue reading A Gift for My Mom That She Will Love
I knew that I wanted to get a filtered shower head but I had no idea where to order one from. I looked at different companies, but this was something I had never purchased before so I had no idea which company was the best. After asking my friend’s husband, I felt much better about buying one from AquaBliss. He told me that is where he orders things like this, and he has never had a problem with them. He said the ordering is flawless, and if I would happen to order the wrong thing like he did once, they have no problem with returns.
He old me a few other reasons, but my main reason other than his recommendation was because of the pricing. It was the best of all the companies I had looked at, which was great now that I knew it was a quality company. I looked at different shower filters, and I was really impressed with the SF220 model. Continue reading I Feel Better with a Shower Filter
I have to figure out exactly what I am going to do, because I clearly need more money than I have before I go off to University. In fact I have been working a number of jobs and doing some things on the side. Today I picked up a little money doing flyer distribution in Singapore, which seems to be something that would embarrass some of my friends. I had to laugh at them acting as though this would bring shame to their families. It is a job, plain and simple. Obviously it is not the job that you would pick if you had the ability to choose from all of the jobs in the world, but they pay you and I need the money. So it does not bother me a bit. Of course for the most part people act as though you have the plague. Many of them take the flyers and throw them away without ever even looking at them, but it is not my job to make them read the things. Continue reading I Am Saving Up My Money
I was not sure what to do when my mom told me she wanted to move closer to me. I knew she would love the area, but I also knew that she would not stay with me. My home is always open to her, but she is just too independent. I decided the best thing I could do was to start looking at apartments in Kingsport TN so she could move here as soon as her house up north sold. She already had an interested buyer with someone else waiting in the wings if the deal fell through, so we expected the sale to be imminent.
I can understand why she would want to move down this way. Continue reading My Mom Moved to Tennessee
I would say that it would be rare for a kid to go through childhood without a toothache. I would say it is especially true with all the sugars in the foods kids typically eat. Can you imagine that cereal is advertised as being healthy, and sugar is almost always the second or third ingredient? Well, we go easy on the breakfast cereals, but we still have a kid that got his first bad toothache. We had just moved within the last few weeks, and we found ourselves looking for a good dentist for Denver CO. When you have a child with a toothache, you need an appointment in a hurry.
I am very happy they were able to see us right away. I have been in the situation of having a terrible toothache and having to wait days for a dental appointment. I actually ended up in the ER once with the pain from an abscess. Even though they said I had a bad infection and they gave me IV antibiotics and injected painkillers, they still did not take out the tooth. Continue reading When Your Child Has His First Bad Toothache, You Find a Dentist Fast
When an NFL team drafted me two years ago, I was ecstatic. I had been dreaming of that since I was on my high school football team. I got a full football scholarship to the college of my choice, and I was one of the favorites for the college fantasy football leagues. Even with all that, I knew that getting on an NFL team was going to be harder than anything. That turned out to be true, because I was cut almost immediately. I looked up off season football training the same day I was cut, because I knew that there was a training facility in Colorado that has an excellent football program.
I knew that I was good enough because the team put me on their practice squad, so I was just one injury or bad call away from being called back in. I wanted to be ready, and I knew that I could get myself into even better shape so they would take notice. When I read about the Landow Performance off season training program, I liked everything that I read. I was able to have a training program put together specifically for me, and it made all the difference. Continue reading I Am Now an NFL Starter
When my son turned three years old, I knew I needed to get him into the dentist. I wanted to choose one that was really good with kids though, so I thought a pediatric dentist would be best. I could not find one that I was completely happy with, so I asked a woman at work who has a son just a little older than my son. I had emailed her about it, and she sent me back an email with a link that said to click here. It took me to the dental website of D’Amico and Mauck.
I noticed that they were not specifically pediatric dentists, but that they do see children as young as my son. Continue reading They Make Dentist Trips Fun for My Son
It is not really that pressing of a matter, because we do not really have the money saved that we are going to need for the down payment. Obviously all of the other stuff that you need to know and that you need to do are secondary to the actual possession of the money you need. I have started to look around at the best realtors in Denver and also I am trying to think about what you can do without one of them. In fact it is obvious that they are not going to do this for free, but they claim that the realtor is going to save you money. Continue reading We Have Started the House Hunt
My sister found apartments for rent in 89129 and promptly moved out, which was a really upsetting incident for me. Ever since we were little, we always roomed together. Some of my earliest memories involve the both of us lying in our beds at night just talking and laughing about boys, school, friends, and life. Even throughout high school we still stayed together in our room. Then she graduated, got a couple of jobs, went to school, and moved out so she could have her own place. I so wanted to move in with her, but with me still being in high school it wasn’t going to happen.
Then two marvelous things happened in quick succession. Continue reading My Sister and I Are Roommates Again
I have never liked being ordinary. I don’t actively seek out ways to be different, but I still end up being exactly that in just about anything that I do. For instance, when I was looking for a place to live not long ago, I did a search for one bedroom Las Vegas apartments for rent. I honestly thought that I was going to find just a regular apartment, but I found only the best apartment complex in the entire area. As soon as I looked at the pictures on the first complex that I looked at, I knew that it was the one for me.
It is just so much nicer than any complex I have seen before. The pool looks like it is a tropical setting rather than just the ordinary pool that most complexes have. It has a fitness center that is huge too. Continue reading The Best Apartment Complex Ever
I am paying my way through college working in a tire shop all day on Saturdays and Wednesdays and cleaning the waiting area and restrooms every weekday evening. I am young and reasonably strong, but I hurt myself. I put new tires on the rims, balance them and lift them back onto the vehicles where I bolt them back on. I was lifting a big tire and rim on a pickup truck and felt a pain in my back. It was my fault for not doing it the right way. I went to see a chiropractor in Redding CA after it kept hurting for a few more days.
I did not tell anyone about it. Continue reading What a Medical Student Does when He Hurts His Back
I have heard that sometimes people don’t experience pain after an accident until days later. When I went a week without feeling little more than banged up, I thought that I was out of the woods. When I got out of bed maybe a month later and was in a lot of pain, I didn’t even associate it with the accident because so much time had passed. The pain was in my neck area mostly, so I went online to look at some local Peoria chiropractors. I figured if it did not get better throughout the day, I would call and make an appointment with one of them.
Well, the pain did not get any better that day. In fact, it got worse throughout the day, so I called and made an appointment with one of the chiropractors close to my house. The pain was so bad that I didn’t even drive myself there. Continue reading I Could Have Saved Myself Pain Down the Road
A chiropractor in Beverly Hills helped me to survive my latest pregnancy. All mothers understand that each pregnancy can have its own ups and downs. Some lucky souls can fly through a pregnancy with almost no problems whatsoever. Those are the lucky ones. The rest of us have to wonder what horrible physical and mental conditions will arrive with carrying a new infant. Maybe it is morning sickness, muscle aches, nutritional deficiencies, or severe depression. I have three kids, and I have to say I’ve experienced different symptoms with each child. The last baby I carried was the worst, however.
My main problem with my final pregnancy was back pain. I wasn’t ready for it because I never experienced such excruciating pain before. Amazingly, I didn’t even associate the pain with carrying the baby. Continue reading Helped Ease a Bad Back Due to Pregnancy
I was out hiking last weekend when it happened, down in this place called Diablo Canyon. I had heard it was a really challenging trail, although in normal conditions it would not have been that big of a deal. However right at the end of the trek there was a real torrential downpour as I was descending a fairly steep slope. I was not able to find a good place to shelter, so I kept going down the mountain until I lost my footing. That was a pretty bad deal and I needed to find a Campbell chiropractor a few days later. At first I was sore, but the fall did not seem like that big of a deal. I kept going until I found a good place to wait out the storm. I finished the hike and I drove back to my place in Los Gatos without really thinking too much about it. I knew that I was sore and I figured it would get worse if I did not do something about it, so I put a heating pad on it before I went to bed. Continue reading I Threw out My Back
I jolted out of bed one morning after our cat jumped on my back and dug deep with his claws when I was asleep. Days later I ended up in the office a chiropractor in Mesa because I hurt myself when I jumped out of bed that morning. I sure am happy that I feel much better now as a result of seeing the chiropractor. I spent a few days later shuffling around slowly because I was so stiff and sore after the morning incident.
I was outside working in the garden one day, and I heard a soft meow coming from nearby. I spun around quickly to try to figure out where the sound was coming from. Continue reading My Cat Sent Me to the Chiropractor’s Office
I always go to the annual cheese steak festival in Philadelphia. They always have cooks that make the tastiest cheese steaks anyone has ever eaten. I bought a tasty cheese steak and was having a good time until the moment when I injured my back. I slipped on some trash and fell backwards. I had only taken a couple of bites out of my cheese steak before I had to stop. I had to see a chiropractor in Philadelphia PA, but I wasn’t going to let go of my cheese steak. As I was laying on the ground in pain, I continued to eat the cheese steak, feeling the pain of my injury with each bite and swallow.
The injury was only a mild one, which was good because it meant that I would have a short recovery time. Unfortunately, because of the injury, I missed the rest of the cheese steak festival. There were so many variations of the sandwich that I didn’t get to try because I was in too much pain and had to get treatment. The festival comes around each year, so I’ll be able to go again, but it still makes me sad that I had to miss the rest of that festival.
The next time I go to the festival, I’m going to watch out for anything that may be on the ground. I never thought about it before, but a lot of litter is left on the ground during the festival, and multiple people have to clean it all up. I’m going to do my part to make the festival cleaner by picking up any trash that I see left on the ground, and I’m going to volunteer to be on the clean up committee. Maybe they’ll let me get some cheese steaks for free if I clean up all of the garbage from the ground.
Hot was an understatement. It was above the average temperature for that week by a good margin. Of course, that is the time the air conditioner decides to go on the blink. It was so hot in our house that we were calling to make reservations to stay at a local hotel. I figured that we would have to wait for a couple of days to get it fixed due to so many service calls coming in because of the mini heat wave. I called a company that provides Sacramento HVAC services, and they said they could send someone out in about an hour. I was a bit nervous thinking I might have called a place that no one wants to use. However, they assured me that they anticipate the mad rush for service calls in the summer and winter, and they make sure they are ready.
It was a little less than an hour later that an HVAC repair specialist showed up at our door. He came in and assessed what the problem was immediately. Continue reading The Sacramento HVAC Services Repair Technician Got Our Old AC System Running Like New Again
It’s funny I went to a chiropractor in San Jose for a massage, but that’s exactly what I did during my recent pregnancy. My first pregnancy was marvelous. I had no morning sickness, very little discomfort, and an easy birthing process. I thought my second pregnancy would be a stroll in the park and I couldn’t have been more wrong. This pregnancy has just been awful. The worst is the sore and tired muscles. I ache all the time and my muscles are so tired that I lack the strength to do the most basic activities.
A friend who went through a similar pregnancy suggested I go to a chiropractor she visited for her problems. I laughed out loud because I associate chiropractors with back pain. She said this clinic used massage for numerous conditions, and that it helped her so much that it was a blessing. She couldn’t sleep due to muscle fatigue, but once she went in for the massage she slept like a baby. I thought I had nothing to lose and I trusted her so I made an appointment and crossed my fingers. Continue reading The Massage Really Works Well
It’s no surprise, in retrospect, that I ended up looking online for a Sacramento bankruptcy attorney. My sister, who has always been irresponsible, came up with some business scheme involving a nightclub. At first I wanted nothing to do with it considering her track record, but our mother lobbied hard for my sister and said I’d had a lot of success in life and that I should help my sister. Against my better judgment, I decided to invest one hundred thousand dollars in the venture. That seemed an affordable amount, and normally it would’ve been. Then my sister got her hands on the money.
To make a long story short, my sister put almost everything in my name and proceeded to blow through the money very quickly. Worse, she racked up a large debt beyond that amount and the business quickly foundered. You can imagine my surprise when I found out I was on the hook for a half million dollars. Furious doesn’t describe my reaction. Continue reading Never Invest in a Business with Relatives!
