I cannot remember anything that I did to cause damage to my back outright. I figure that it was just getting older and being overweight, so it must have happened over the long term. No matter how it happened, it was a really big problem that I could not even get out of bed on some days when I tried. It was my boss who told me to take some time off to see his San Jose chiropractor to try to get some fast relief. I was grateful for his stamp of approval and hoped that I would find the solution that I needed more than anything.
The first time that I found myself unable to get out of bed in the morning, I had to call my sister to see if she could come help me. As a busy mom with three kids, I knew that she would be doing me a big favor because she has to get all her kids ready every morning to get them to school on time. I had to lay there for about an hour before she could get to me after rushing the kids to school. It was so embarrassing. And I also knew that she could not always be there for me. If any of her kids were sick or if she had an emergency of her own, I could find myself laying in bed all day long.
Being stuck in bed happened enough times that I finally started crawling out of bed to get ready for work. I would show up looking like a mess because I could not stand up to shower properly or even see my hair in the mirror so that I could brush it properly. I walked around looking and feeling as if I were twice my age. When my boss told me to leave and go get help, that is what I did. I’m so glad that he suggested it.
