My emotions get the best of me when I think about the car accident I was 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 rear ended me while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking in the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car didn't stop and I barely had time to react. The impact was terrifying. I passed out. I woke up with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious injuries, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in serious pain. They had me move my legs and toes. No paralysis, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room they took x-rays of my back, I had a hairline fracture on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested surgery to fix some of the problems it was either that or medication while it healed.
The thought of surgery had me thinking about my uncle. He had a bad back and had undergone alot of back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a painful thought. I had a cane to help me walk, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for a couple of months. I couldn't stand it any longer. I figured surgery had to be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the thought of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to live 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 anything better.
A friend of mine called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. He wanted to get some dinner, I let him know that my back wouldn't allow it. He was disappointed, but then what he told me was the first glimps of hope I had heard in a while. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you fixed up in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand how bad my contidion was. I tried to explain that this was past any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't hear it. He set me up an appointment 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 another method.
I went into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took a few X-Rays and did some tests with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a crunch 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 finished I sat up with a grin on my face. I could tell 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 impressed 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 walk with a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
