I was one of those disbelieving individuals that makes every doctor and therapists cringe as I walk in. Nothing works, EVER, and nothing you do will change that fact, at least, that was my attitude when approaching a new Specialist. For years I have seen every specialist from all over the US and some in Mexico to help me with my pain. I have spent literally thousands of dollars trying anything and everything to give me some peace and just a few pain free minutes without being knocked out by Morphine, Norco, Prednisone and a hundred other pain killers. The "Killers" were killing me and I knew it. A friend of mine told me to go see the new gal in Cool. I said there was no way in %^#$@ that she would be any different than the others. He said, "She guarantees her work". If you don't feel like she helped you with her treatment, you don't pay. Of course you can't go back time and time again and say it isn't working.
Well, I finally (after 4 months), booked time with her. Told her it wasn't going to work and nothing she did was going to help any more than the others I had seen. She said OK, I guess there is nothing to talk about so thanks for stopping and have a good day. I said, well, maybe it could do some good, we'll have to see. She said that attitude is a huge part of getting better and if I wanted her to put her efforts into making me better, than I had to do my part and that was thinking positively about what I was going to receive or she wouldn't even waste her energy trying to make me better.
That was the day that changed my life!! Literally!! I did feel better after the first treatment so I scheduled to do her intensive program and I can tell you this, I am doing great! My pain is at the lowest it has been in decades! I feel better, have more energy and I am no longer taking any Morphine or Prednesone! My attitude is also much better. Her smile put a ray of sunshine into this bitter old heart and now I am thankful for the gift of not only lessening my pain, but changing the pain in the a$$ attitude that I have put my friends and family through for the last several years.
