My emotions get the best of me when I think about my car accident in 4 years ago. It changed my life. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. she was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking in the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car wasn't slowing down and I hardly had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I blacked out. I awoke with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious wounds, and asked me if I felt any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and wiggle my toes. I wasn't Paralized, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room they took an x-ray of my back, I had a hairline fracture on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested a dangerous sergical procedure to correct some of the problems it was either that or pills while it healed.
The thought of surgery had me thinking about my uncle. He had back problems and had undergone many back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a scary thought. I had a cane to help me around, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't take it anymore. I thought sugery would be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the memory of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to be like that.
I was frustrated to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without horrible pains shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to live like this for the rest of my life was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers was looking like an option, I prayed for something better.
My friend called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to say hello. Daniel wanted to grab some dinner, I let him know that my back I was hurting too much. He was disappointed, but then what he told me was the first glimmer of hope I had heard in a long time. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you better in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand the severity of my condition. I tried to tell him that this was past the help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't hear it. He set me up to meet with his wife Shelly the next day. I was intrigued, I never went to chiropractors cause I always relied on medical doctors. Now They had failed me and I figured I"d try a different method.
I walked into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took a few X-Rays and did some diagnostics with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I felt a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a weight on my back had. I felt it throughout my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I got up with a grin on my face. I could feel something was different...Better. I had a huge list of questions for Shelly which she answered with a grace and patience like no other. She Actually took the time to listen to all my concerns unlike Dr. Joe Schmo who wanted to get the best bang for his buck.
She saw my hope and enthusiasm, to which she told me that she would have me walking without my cane in a few weeks. I was so happy with my first visit I cancelled my surgery.
I continued my treatment with them and I still go at least once a week. I don't use a cane anymore, and medication is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
