I Could Wring His Neck ....

He feels more 'human' this weekend. He went for chiropractic treatment on Wednesday. She had to wring his neck for him; three times. At a cost of £40. I said in future I would wring his neck for free. I'll let you know if he takes me up on my offer.

Having just read your previous post I might be on the right lines of thinking about the situation you found yourself in. I hope you are feeling better this morning. I often feel like wringing a neck or two but usually end up in blog land instead!

Take care, Crystal xx

Get one of those 'executive' toys that are sold. Something that you can throw at a wall as hard as you like over and over and it doesn't break but gives you a great feeling of control. It will save you from seeing off your other half to the big moany place in the sky and you wont go to gaol for his demise!

Your post has a lovely wry wit to it today - are things getting more manageable for you? I hope so.


If, like me, you can't stand the pain of chiropractic treatment but you are looking for an effective, long term remedy for your back problems then may i suggest a new mattress (or to be more specific – an orthopaedic, temperpedic, or memory foam mattress)
A whole range of specialist mattresses have been designed in order to try and correct posture and alleviate back and neck pains. The benefits are long-term and you don't need to regularly visit [and pay!] some heavy handed therapist to relieve the pain! I recently purchased an orthopaedic memory foam mattress online, and I can report, that after a fortnight sleeping on it, i wake up feeling much better than I did when I slept on my old mattress and i foresee a lack of future visits to my heavy handed chiropractor!!

Although one may jump to the conclusion that such specialist mattress prices are high, if you look hard enough you can find cheap mattresses out there, especially online. If you are dispirited by the expense, just think of the long term benefits for your health... a decent mattress can last up to 10 years!
