I have just looked at the clock and see that I am now celebrating 4.5 hours of pain freedom on one side of my body! My chiropractor looked at all the paperwork, lab tests, and x-rays and said, “I have a solution for the right side of your body. “
He showed me an 11mm lift for the heel of my right shoe, asked me to wear it around his office after my adjustment and then report in tomorrow, noting whether or not it relieved my pain and discomfort. Behold, by the time I reached home, I had no pain on my right side.
I still have no pain on my right side and now none in my left arm pit. Pinched nerves.
I felt very hopeful about recovery from this month long odyssey of pain and no sleep, possible heart attack and stroke scares, and most importantly I felt listened to.
WHAT A LIFT!
After 3 phones calls my phone and Internet services started working again tonight after being down all day.
I wandered around the Internet and found some other folks who gave me lots of lifts and some good words to think about and even some laughter.
I thought I would share my discoveries and the good news.
This writer is working on getting chemical free and sharing lots of her secrets. This was exciting to discover someone else’s good ideas and solutions.
Working on a list of stay at home father’s who blog and celebrating their spirit, fun and writing. Lifting them up for other’s to discover.

Here is some very good thinking about how we support our children and encourage them to have a strong sense of self and be positive. The comments are as excellent as the points of the writer. A lift up of timely ideas.

I missed all the Inaugural Celebrations and speeches today, and Dot writes about the excitement felt in the whole of the city, the changes, and what it is like to live in the area. Good pictures too… I felt a part of the experience. A lifting of energy.
I just laughed out loud with Jannie’s typos post and her commenter’s comments and to think she has a ukulele songwriting post coming out tomorrow – I can hardly wait to read that and her CD debut in the Spring. One can click around and hear samples of her songs. Another LIFT with music!
Barbara is reminding writers and bloggers to be thoughtful and careful about what they say about others in their writing. I think that is a good way to be and to work at lifting others up in a positive light without harm. Lifts my thinking!
Just made me laugh and laugh and I had to go back and read his post about Grocery Shopping 2 times. The lift of laughing out loud and recognizing the experience.
