Before | After

Eek, pop, crunch, thud!

Well, that was fun.

I just had another appointment with the Chiropractor.

As I said in my last post, I've stopped taking the anti-inflammatory's, a move that David has agreed with.

According to David, anti-inflammatory's usually break the inflammation cycle, and allow the body to heal on it's own. The fact that whenever I stop taking them I revert back to the way I was is an indication that something is seriously wrong. Not taking them will give David a more accurate look at whether I'm getting better or not.

In the previous five sessions David has done two adjustments. The first is either my right hip or my lower back, the second is either my upper back or my neck.

This time he did four. Hip, middle back, upper back and neck.

At this current point in time, I am sitting at my desk at work, with an ice pack on my lower back, after it's already spent some time on my middle back, and later it will be spending time on my upper back and neck.

I feel better now.

Re: <= has a thing for the legend of phoenix
Thank you!

I tend to use my icons as an indicator of what the post is about or the mood I'm in. The phoenix icon tends to be about "re-birth", ie: things getting better, changing, etc.

Btw: The icon comes from a collectible card game called Legends of the Five Rings, from the Phoenix Clan symbol.

Most of his icons are pretty good, well, I'm yet to see a poor one at any rate.

Aww, shucks. You're going to make this boy blush shortly.

One of these days I'm going to do a post with the pictures that my icons come from, with explanations as what I have them mean. Probably happen sooner than later, at this rate.

Have you ever considered learning Alexander Technique to help with your back pain?

Rather than rave on about how awesome it is, here is a link to the austat website. I can certainly recommend my practitioner to you, if you're interested.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
