Apparently, I have what we call a 'bulging disc'

The chiropractor started treatment yesterday and I'm already detecting some improvement. For 30 minutes a day, four days a week, five weeks I get to go lie on this table to stretch and relax until I feel better. Pretty rough stuff, eh?

Icing on the cake: I am not allowed to clean my house during this time. I am supposed to give my husband and children lists and directions. And when it is all said and done, I will be out of pain for the first time in years. Sure the $3295 price tag may land me an ulcer, but, beyond that, I'm having a really hard time finding the down side to any of this.

No house cleaning?? Hopefully you can enjoy the break!

I think I'd fall asleep. 30 minutes of laying down without someone needing juice, a diaper or a referee sounds like heaven!

Enjoy the nice break! Do what the DR says!

Hi Gretchie,

Sorry to hear that, but at least you have identified the enemy. Hopefully you can enlist the girls in the battle and reduce some of the stress.

Love, Papa

For that amount of money, I think your doc should throw in a little note that extends your "no housekeeping" orders for another month after you're healed.
