My emotions get the best of me when I think about my car accident in 4 years ago. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. It changed my life. she was driving full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking back into the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car didn't stop and I barely had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I passed out. I woke up with the EMS hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no external wounds, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and toes. I could wiggle them, thank God.
They took me 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 surgery to correct some of the issues it was either that or medication 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 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 take it any longer. I thought sugery would be better 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 be like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without terrible pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to live like this anymore 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 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 glimmer 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 the help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. 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. since Medical Doctors had failed me and I figured I"d try a different method.
I went 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 heard a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I sat up with a grin on my face. I could tell something was different...Better. I had a long list of questions for Shelly and 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 just 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 like before 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 walk with a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
