Well, it happened again. I thought I was too young for this kind of thing. I try not to use the internet as a platform to just complain about how hard my life is, but nobody else wants to listen to it, and sometimes folks are looking for somebody to commiserate with. Well, people, if you are also dealing with early-onset back issues and other sorts of spinal pain that doesn’t seem to make any sense but keeps happening even though you keep having to make proactive solutions to prevent it, join the party– not a very fun party, but consider this an invitation.
I’m only 29 years old. I go to the gym sometimes and I’m lead an active lifestyle. As far as diet and exercise, I am literally healthier than every single one of my friends and family members– even if that’s not saying much. However, I seem to be the only person around my age who was dealing with these chronic pains. I don’t know what to do. Friends around the city have told me to go see a specialist, I’ve talked on the phone with a renowned Raleigh chiropractor, but I didn’t really like what he had to say… Call me old-fashioned, but chiropractor stuff just seems a little weird to me. My wife, on the other hand, keeps telling me to go see the chiropractor and insist that a lot of her friends and coworkers have nothing but good things to say about this guy. So, reluctantly, I’ll be heading out the door in about 25 minutes. I’ll let you know how it goes. If there isn’t another post in the next few days, it’ll mean that I had nothing to complain about regarding the procedure– well, either that or it’ll mean that this chiropractor’s crazy New Age methods killed me.
I’m joking of course– kind of. I’m a little afraid, but not too much, just a little anxious. I’ve designed a life for myself where I don’t need to do new things like this very often, but sometimes I guess it’s just necessary.
