I had a pretty interesting time in between Paris and now; For the first time in my life, I got a temporary slight disability;
I somehow injured my back, (blame it on having to wear high heels in Paris, or on the stupidly heavy Baerenreiter COSI score I was carrying with me on my long walks to and from rehearsals, or maybe it was the stress) , but it has gotten so bad that back in New York I couldn't walk for more than 10 minutes without having to sit down and yelp , and I couldn't sleep through the night because of the sharp pain, and of course, I couldn't stand up and sing either... It was bad... and I think deep inside, I was ffffreaking out. Never mind carrying groceries or living normally, but my line of work, my livelihood depends on my back!
I always took daily movement for granted. It's when you CAN'T do the simple stuff, that you realize how much of a necessity it really is.
Exercise was out of the question, other than careful stretching, but non of my routine cardio was anything my condition allowed me to do.
First I went to an orthopedic doctor who suggested pain killers and rest. But when that didn't help, nor all the stretching in the world, I looked at one of these hippie "spiritual" magazine type of publications, outside the orgainic food store, and I searched through the adds for salvation.
To my amazement, that came in the form of a chiropractor slash acupuncturist named Dr. Schram .
People are very sceptic and suspicious about chiropractice, and so am I, but since Schram has all kinds of bunnies (and I ♥ bunnies!) in his professional hat, I decided I had nothing left to lose, (as I was gaining weight by the minute, and pain and hysteria were adding on some insufferable overtones to my personality).
The Schram made me cross my arms and hug my self, then he hugged me, and I heard a click. He clicked from the right, from the left, and that was that. In less than seven minutes, two and a half months of crap were gone, I swear to you ! Occasionally I get a faint pain here or there, but nothing like before.
There. So I might have been silent on here, and a whiney cow in reality, but now I have no excuse. Time to get back in shape and be thankful that there's some magic left in this world!

Wow Rini - I'm so glad you're better! You didn't even have to get any needles? Just a shake and you were better? It's a miracle (and I'm always happy when you write a new posting :)
