Wordless Wednesday Just Below.

(Edited: I am moving this to the top, because I need a third winner AND no one answered my questions!!!)

I have a question for you my adorable internettys with vast and varied knowledge. As mentioned on my last TT, I am not sleeping well. Part of it is stress and a large part of it is the goshawful mattress that I have. But I am not sure that the pain that keeps me awake is just the durned ol’ mattress. I have always had some problems with my back. I have mild scoliosis and every few years my back just goes kaput. Lately I have added some kind of severe hip pain to the mix also.

So here is where you come in. I need your input. The first is chiropractic care. I have always been deathly afraid of chiropractors (my mother was always sure that chiropractors would break your neck). A long time ago, (I was pregnant with MacD) I worked for one. He was a ‘certain kind’ of chiropractor that does adjustments gently with a little “clicky tool” instead of the big cracking kind of adjustment. There was a name for it, but I cannot for the life of me recall it. Does anyone know? He really helped me.

Secondly, can you share with me your experience with acupuncture? I don’t know much about it. Does it help with pain? Could it help with my hands, back and hip? Is it painful? Does insurance usually cover it?


Ever seen that movie Pay It Forward? The premise is how I have lived my life. So I could not pass up the chance to do it here! Mishelle over at Secret Agent Moma says:

“I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

For the first 3 people that respond I have a handmade goodie I’ll send you. This goodie will come after January 1, 2008.
What do you have to do?
1. Respond on this blog and give your email address so that I can contact you for your address.
2. Place this on your own blog and also send the first 3 people that respond something.

It does appear that I made it in the top three comments at her place, but even if I didn’t I would still love to do this. So I am. Same rules apply. My gift will probably definitely be something crocheted, cuz that is my specialty. So comment and Pay It Forward.


I have no idea how I found this, but once I started reading (I started at the end and worked my way forward to current time) I could not stop. I mean I just read and read. No breaks. I don’t really know what to say or think, it just evoked a tremendous amount of different emotions….what do you think? One thought I had-she is an incredibly writer for her age…


Also Mishelle tagged me for a fun little doohickey which I will do some time this week. *smiles*
