Satisfied with Network Spinal Analysis - Several years ago I had my first experience with Network Spinal Analysis Care.  I was in great pain and could not move my head and neck.  Nothing I tried worked.  We did not have insurance that would help pay for chiropractic care, but I was desperate!  It was a holiday weekend.  Most people were available… Continue reading Satisfied with Network Spinal Analysis

When Enough is Enough - When is enough enough? I am overwhelmed by all the crazy messages of “buy this, own that, travel here, live there, look this way… you’ll be happy.” Really?

Loving me Some Eggplant - I will admit… I have never been a fan of eggplant.  It’s not the fault of the eggplant.  It’s just that my first experience with this little vegetable was a little traumatic.  It was a cast party after a show… the catered meal had some kind of egg plant on the table.  At first glance… Continue reading Loving me Some Eggplant

Finding a… Continue reading Satisfaction Preserved
Get Moving With Fitbit - When I first started this whole “fitness” and “healthy” living kick this past spring, I was not interested in exercise one bit.  Everything hurt to move.  Why would I want to increase movement?  Why would I want to sign up to be shamed for my lack of mobility?
