I'm amazed by how much better I've been feeling lately. A lot of it stems back to seeing the chiropractor. I hadn't thought that it was possible to stop taking anti-depressants before I saw him. In fact, I was asked to write a testimonial for him and I was surprised by what I had to say.
Before I went there, feeling lousy had crept up on me until it felt like it was normal. I had no energy and I was pretty much a spectator in my own life. Now I have more energy and hardly any pain. I went from having headaches and migraines frequently to hardly any at all. I don't remember when I last had a migraine. I have a better range of motion and can now turn my head to look over my shoulder. I couldn't do that before. I'm not going to try to sell you on chiropractic, but I will say that it's made a huge difference in my quality of life. The doctor I visit is part of Maximized Living. Check their site for more information. I'm learning a lot about my body and health.
Since I'm feeling better, I'm finding that I'm getting more done around the house. My best friend is coming for a visit in a few weeks, so I have a deadline for clearing up the clutter. I know that she won't care if my house is a mess, but I care and that's something that I didn't feel before. I'm working in small batches, trying to clean up one small area at a time. So far, I've gotten our dining room table 1/3 cleared off. I hope to have it fully cleared off this week so that we can actually sit down and eat at the table as a family. Somehow it became a dumping ground for everything paper related. It's like a paper avalanche hit when I wasn't looking. I may just have a dinner party when it's done!
Slowly but surely, I'm getting rid of the clutter. I cleared out our front hall closet one night this week. There were so many shoes that we couldn't close the closet door and since this is the first thing you see when you come in our house, it was pretty awful. I found several single shoes that didn't have mates as well as all of our winter boots (which are now stored in the basement) and some shoes that the kids had outgrown. It was a relief to be able to toss some old shoes and donate some of the nicer ones that the kids are finished with. Now I can close the closet door! Someday I'll have to go through the coats that are hanging there and the stuff on the shelves, but I'll get there.
