I Spoke Too Soon

In my last blog I said that after a couple of trips to the chiropractor my back was feeling much better. At the time I wrote that, it was the truth. But apparently I spoke too soon. I posted the blog a little before 1 AM our time, then went to bed. Sometime around 3 […]

It’s A Wet Heat

Several people have asked me how we are handling our first full summer here in Florida, and if the heat and humidity are getting to us. We are actually doing quite well. Every day it gets into the upper 80s or low 90s and humidity is somewhere about the same, but it’s a wet heat. […]

Well Darn It!

Just about the time I thought I was back to normal, or whatever passes for normal with me, my darn back is out again. We stayed up late to watch the launch of the SpaceX “block 5” Falcon 9 rocket, which lifted off at 1:18 AM Tuesday morning from Cape Canaveral. A little while later, […]

We were up early yesterday morning because I had an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach for something called a field of vision test. I have rather large and abnormally shaped eyes, and every time I get an eye exam, when they do a pressure test they tell me they think I […]

Playing Doctor

I have been playing doctor. No, not that kind of “playing doctor,” though Lord knows I did a bunch of that when I was a kid. What can I say? I always had an inquiring mind. And get your head out of the gutter, Miss Terry isn’t putting on a nurse uniform to live out […]

We had a busy weekend, and by the end of the day yesterday we had finished paneling one of the 50 foot long walls of the garage, except for trim pieces. Cutting the paneling to fit around the two windows was the most time-consuming part. That’s the longest continual wall. The front and back are […]

It is amazing to me how much better I’m feeling after a couple of weeks worth of visits to the chiropractor three times a week. I can’t say enough good about Dr. Thomas and the rest of the staff at Coastal Integrative Healthcare in New Smyrna Beach. Two weeks ago I was seriously considering back […]

Making Some Headway

I think we’re making some headway with my back problems but it seems like it’s two steps forward and one step back. After going back to the chiropractor on Tuesday and getting an adjustment, I was still experiencing some tenderness but nothing compared to the pain I had been dealing with for five days. In […]

Well, thanks to the wonders of pharmaceuticals I’m at least able to write a blog for today. As Greg White posted for me yesterday, after checking me over on Monday the chiropractor was afraid to do any adjustments because she suspected my problem might be a kidney stone. She advised me to go to an […]

A Short Blog

Just a short blog today to give you a quick update. As I mentioned a few days ago, I have lived with chronic back pain for most of my adult life, a result of an injury I got when I was in the Army. It usually flares up a couple of times a year and […]
