I did it!

Just about my whole life I have been told I should see a chiropractor.  
With all that I've put my body through, especially since I was 16, there have been times I have wanted to believe me!  I've always put the breaks on though...I have never been comfortable with the thought of a male chiropractor adjusting me and have never heard of a female so I've let it go and lived with it.  After living with a headache pretty much 24/7 with varying severities, I gave in and went.  We have a chiropractor in Carthage who is a female and she was recommended to me!  

Yesterday was my first appointment and it was amazing!  
I went to bed last night with a headache, but not to the point that I usually have and I woke up this morning free of one.  I've since got a small one brewing, but it might have something to do with the neck pain I have from the day after being adjusted.  It's 10x's better already!  She adjusted 13 of the 26 vertebrae and then gave me stretches to work on until I go back on Thursday.  She stood behind me and said that my left shoulder was a good inch or more higher than my right.  She actually laughed LOL.  Of course I also got the posture talk, so I'm working on that as well.  Hopefully this continues to help.  I didn't like her talk about what the next step would be if this didn't help so I'm going to keep praying it does!

"Yay" to actually going to the chiro as I am one of 'those people' who have told you that you should, and to the exercises/stretches she gave you to do (many chiros do not do that and it's so important) and "double yay" to the talk on your posture :P <3
