Getting Started on a Big Project

I have just started out on this project, but it is going to take quite a bit of time to get it completed. The basic thing is that me and a half dozen other people bought a rather large piece of farm land which is just South of the metropolitan area. One of them is a chiropractor in Orland Park IL who fixed my back after someone crossed the center line and smashed into my truck about six years ago. He knew the other people and of course we are thinking about this as an investment, but it is not really that exactly. The land sits on a little tributary of the Illinois river where there is a lot of marshland and where you have that, you also have lots of water fowl. Obviously this makes it really easy to sell it to people who like to hunt ducks and fish.

The piece of land is huge, much of it has never been farmed. (more…)

Baking Cookies All Day Just About Ruined My Back

Can you guess what did my back in over the weekend? Of all things, it was baking cookies. I was baking sheet after sheet of peanut butter cookies. A few hours into it, my back started to ache. It then progressed to the point of a pretty bad backache. It was pulling like I was hanging from a bridge by my fingertips for a day. I could not get the muscle spasms to relax. I spent all that time leaning over a countertop rolling peanut butter cookies into little balls and needed to see my Sacramento chiropractor the next day.

We were baking cookies to give to family, friends and neighbors. Everyone likes the cookies I bake. (more…)

The Pain is Starting to Go Away

Chronic pain is horrible. I know this because I lived with it for years. I am not the type to take a lot of pills because I saw someone very close to me become addicted to pain medication. I did not want the same thing to happen to me, so I just took it the best I could. I did try a lot of things before finally finding the answers that I needed with a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ. Before I went to his office, I had tried several things that my regular doctor suggested. I also tried acupuncture, physical therapy, hypnosis and other things, but nothing took my pain away.

I had not tried a chiropractor though, and I realized after reading about everything they do that I probably should have seen one from the moment my pain started. I felt even more confident when they started to devise a plan around me rather than giving me a standard plan that might work for some but not others. (more…)
