A Chiropractor Was Better Than Two Separate Physicians

I walked inside the door of a Sacramento chiropractic office a few months back and asked if they had any room to see me that day. When the answer turned out to be that they had plenty of room to see me, I let out a big sigh and told the receiptionist how greatful I was. I then told her why. She said, “Well, don’t go away. I can get you right in after his next appointment because it sounds like you’ve been in a lot of pain for much too long.” Finally! Someone who actually understood what I was going through and cared enough to do something to help me get through the situation.

I’ve never thought my physician or any other one that I’ve visited has seemed particularly caring. I don’t think they have time to do that or the ability to do that. They see too many patients on a daily basis to get caught up in the emotions of every patient. That would be a big problem for any doctor and weigh them down quickly. But my doctor didn’t really seem to care at all. In fact, he showed disinterest from the very first time I came to him about my back. When I came back at third time to tell him the trouble was still happening, he suddenly seemed annoyed. He pointed at surgery as being my only option.

I went somewhere else after that. While the next doctor did seem to care a bit more, he said that he did not believe I should have surgery and that the other doctor was wrong. It was frusrating to say the least. I realized it would mean I need to go to a 3rd doctor to really find out what the correct answer is. I could not do that.

The Blower Motor Failed on My Furnace on the First Cold Day of the Year

I am usually in the habit of checking everything well before I need it. If I am going on vacation, I check everything on my car. In the spring, before it gets too warm, I always test my air conditioners. In the early part of fall, I always check my furnace too. I do this so I am not left with any surprises should something not work. Well, this past fall, I got distracted and did not check my furnace. When it got cold and wouldn’t turn on, I had to contact a Sacramento HVAC company to come out and look at it.

The furnace was not too old, so I had no idea what was wrong with it. I knew that it should definitely be working though. Continue reading

Wasted Most of the Day in Court

I pretty much knew what was going to happen all along and I was about mad enough to yell at all of the people I knew were wasting my time. I was not really sure that they could force me to show up, I was simply a witness who did not see too much. The entire thing was just a Sacramento personal injury attorney and the lawyers for the insurance companies doing this little dance, it was obvious from the start that they were working on a settlement and just could not get around to the finish line until someone put the pressure on. Of course that was why they dragged me and about a dozen other people in there. They wanted to make it look like they were going to fight it out in court, but no one was really buying it. In fact they already knew all that I had to say and that was not too much.

I had not really seen the accident and did not know who had caused it. Continue reading
