A woman at work told me how her Santa Rosa chiropractor was helping with her stress levels. I had been telling her that I was exhausted from the amount of work that my new position in the company brought about. I really wanted to figure out how to keep pushing and moving in the new position, and I was concerned that would not happen if I didn’t figure out a way to manage my very high stress levels. She said that she really thinks that I would be better off going to see him as soon as possible. She felt there is no sense in suffering and finding that you ruin your job or lose a client after it’s too late.
I had been wanting the position that I had ever since I came to the company that I worked for. I wanted to be the international purchasing manager. I had been a manager for years, and I started out in a purchasing department at a young age. But I never had the added stress of needing to continuously fly overseas to visit different wholesale manufacturers.
When you lose someone you love, life really cannot get any worse. It was irritating to get threatening letters in the mail and endless phone calls from bill collectors, but my grief really did not allow for those things to penetrate my life because I was missing my husband so much. He was sick for a couple of years, and the medical bills just kept racking up as we tried to save his life. He lost his life anyway, and I was heartbroken. About a year later, I finally contacted a Sacramento bankruptcy attorney because I realized that I was hurting those who are closest to me.
I never neglected our children during this time of grief in the traditional ways, but I realized I was hurting them by not living life to the fullest, just as my husband would have wanted us to do. I knew the first thing I had to do was try and get rid of all the medical debt that we had. There was just no way I could afford to pay all of it. His meager life insurance policy was enough to pay for the funeral and to help me pay off the car loan and some of the mortgage. There was just not enough to pay everyone though.
I made an appointment with a bankruptcy attorney, and he went over all my options with me. I was a good candidate for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and he took care of all the paperwork for me. That was such a load off of me, and I honestly did not realize just how much it was weighing me down through all of this. With a fresh start, I was able to slowly come out of my grief and focus 100 percent on my children. I will always love and miss my husband, but it does feel good to be back in the land of the living again too.
I have just now started to look for a Bakersfield chiropractor, but only after I figured out that this is really the only way that I am going to be able to get my back fixed. I went to see a doctor about it and she sent me to see a back specialist. He messed around for a good long time and then he gave a prescription for a bottle of pain pills. I am sort of afraid of those things, because I used to work with this guy who got addicted to them and it led to all sorts of bad outcomes for him. Of course a lot of people really thought that he was abusing the pills before he got hooked on them, but that is beside the point.
Of course this would not usually effect me too much, although this is a recurring problem and it does nothing for his sunny disposition. He has a chiropractor in Sacramento, but that was not where he was when he got this problem. In fact he was at this hotel in the middle of nowhere, or to be exact the Imperial Valley. He apparently was not hardly able to get out of the bed and so I had to drive down there and get him. I took one of the secretaries to drive his car back and I picked up some pain pills. Those put him out like a light, in fact I was really sort of worried. I was pretty sure that he took at least twice as many as you were supposed to take. In a lot of case people would be okay if their boss took a handful of pain pills, but for me I have to think about the alternative.
