Every day I wake up and I hurt. It is because my back is messed up and I have no idea what I did to it initially to make it such that I wake up and it is hard for me to get out of bed in the morning. When I was younger I used to be pretty good shape and I was pretty athletic as well. Those days are gone and they are replaced by agony. I have an appointment to see an Alexandria chiropractor in two days and to be honest, I am not sure how I am going to wait until then.
My back is worse than it has ever been in my life right now. Of course, it has only been about a year since my back started hurting in the first place. But that is much too long to live in the type of pain that I have had to endure. I went to the doctor about the problem, and they were not very helpful at all. They took some X-Rays and they said that they did not see any damage. They said that my disc spacing looked fine, and that it was probably just a product of stress. It was a pretty crappy answer, as far as I am concerned, and I can tell you one thing. I did not ever go back to that doctor.
But maybe going to get treatment from a chiropractor will make things better. I have never seen one before and I am trying to stay optimistic. Because I need something to look forward in my life, as most of my life is dominated by the pain that I have to deal with. It is not a very good way to live and I hope it will stop very soon.
