In fact I would have laughed if I had not known that this is not so uncommon around here. A friend of mine set me up on a date with this girl and when I asked her what she did, she told me that she was training for the Olympics. In most areas that would be uncommon, but here in Colorado Springs you meet people who want to go to the Olympics because we have the training center where you get ready to go. In fact I asked her if she was learning any Japanese, although I was not really sure if I was right. It turned out that the 2020 games were going to be in Tokyo, but I was not sure when I said it.

My mom married a Corte Madera chiropractor a couple of years ago, and I am highly impressed with him. I’m impressed with him as someone who is my new stepdad, and as someone who cares about the health and well being about other people. My mom knows that I think the world of him. I got to see firsthand how he works and cares for his clients because I am now one of his clients. Prior to meeting him, I had no earthly idea what chiropractors really do. I thought maybe they made a living by cracking people’s backs. I am embarrassed that I had no idea. But he does so much more than that.
When I started having trouble with my back, mom’s new husband said that he would like me to come to his office so that he could assess my back properly. He didn’t know that I had been to a doctor many times without any good relief until I told him about it. He told me that he hoped that he would let him have a chance to try to help me feel good again. He told me to come by his office the next week and that there would no charge for the assessment or any of the treatments he would give me. I was having trouble keeping up with bills, so this made me happy. I was also happy because I didn’t have insurance and could not afford to go see my physician who wasn’t doing me any good in the first place.
My new stepdad sat me down and talked me about why I was having back problems. He said that he would love to work out a treatment plan with me if I was interested. I go see him once a month now. In the past, I was in a lot of pain at first, so I saw him once per week. He has been great about everything.
