I think it useful to not indulge what is consuming me emotionally.
I should be thrilled that the newly found chiropractor in Alpine is a Palmer grad, and that he has drastically reduced the pain that had been a nuisance for a month or so. I think it has been going on for even longer and I just forget time frames.
Sacroiliac sounds like a made up part. Just a word to further a scam. Apparently not. I have found myself experiencing problematic pains a few times in my life. It is the type of thing that only a good chiropractor has been able to relieve. That was my main worry when I left Miami, along with the fact I'd found a decent hair cutter.
As rare as it is when I have back or neck issues which fall under chiropractic purview, it is nice to know one is near. I remember barely being able to get in the car a drive to his office. My brother's brother in law. And his father before him. Those two worked magic. People who knew the dad and know the son's work will attest to it. The Alpine guy is good but he's not them. Still, the job will get done.
When asked how to select a chiropractor in distant cities, my Miami in law relative said just check fro Palmer grads. Finally after a decade or so, I did just that. The only time I have been to anyone but a member of that remarkable family in Miami. Oh wait. I did talk a guy in Inverness into doing something to relieve back pain when I had to pick up a car there and drive it down on Christmas eve. Then I got real help.
This is the only chiropractor in Alpine, as far as I know. He is not hurting for business, that is for sure. And he doesn't charge as much as the Inverness, FL chiropractors did in 2004. I went from one to the other there to find one that would just give some adjustment and not demand X-Rays and a bunch of stuff that would require coming back next week, etc. Finally that one guy understood and helped. He also talked to my Miami friend on the phone which helped.
I think it must be the Palmer way to minimize bureaucracy and actually do you some good.
It must be a nice life when you benefit people on a regular basis. I honestly do not do much good any more. Not often anyway. And, as is probably common, when I think I will change and fix this mess I feel too exhausted. I bet that is just another big lie my mind is working with. Damn it. If I had stayed married and done all that would have entailed, things would be so much different and so much more sane. So tire of looking in the mirror only to see a total idiot and fool looking back.
But, I only look in the mirror when absolutely necessary and only to ensure I don't go out with stuff hanging out of my nose and such. You can go for specifics without really looking at the person in the reflection. I'm expert.
