Another Loss of Wisdom

I am sorry it has been so long since I have updated this blog. Life has taken a few twists and turns, which I will go into next time as a digression from the timeline. With that said, back to 2009.

Having felt as though the therapy I was getting at work was not working the way I had hoped it would, I decided to make a change. My chiropractor checked around with several therapists in town and finally found one a couple of miles away who thought he could help me. My condition was not one most of the therapists had understood, so my chiropractor wasn't going to send me to just anyone.

This therapist was Mark Deysher (pronounced die-sure). He had been in the Air Force for many years and had seen a lot of combat related injuries. Once he retired to Colorado Springs, he began working for Select Physical Therapy, a division of Healthsouth.

Mark was the absolute best person for me to go through therapy with. He had such a caring way about him and made you feel as though you were more important than business. He always wanted to make sure you were progressing as best as you could. However, the company didn't like that about Mark and chose to get rid of him. I didn't go back because of that. But I digress slightly. Mark did wonders with me and I do miss him to this day. I will go into our therapy sessions more another time.

I was doing fairly well, so on the weekends mom and I would travel around the state finding new and interesting things to keep us from getting tired of only having appointments and work during the week. We had a lot of fun finding larger than life rocking chairs, funny restaurant names and just plain seeing the sites. Colorado has a lot more to offer than just your ski resorts. Colorado is really beautiful.

But, even with all of the site seeing, life can always bring you back to reality. In March, I finally went to the oral surgeon and had the remainder of my wisdom teeth removed. I was in so much pain after that. Having my major hip surgery was a walk in the park compared to having my teeth pulled. It was so bad, my chiropractor had to realign my jaw several days later. I really didn't enjoy that process at all. But, you do what you have to do, right?

So, I'll tell you all about the past couple of weeks that I have been offline and then get back to the story after that.

Next..."Managing Disappointment After Disappointment."
