Chiropractics hasn't helped any of us regarding UC...it's helped my sore back, however...
Why does what she says bother you so much? Isn't she the one who has never been responsive to your "suffering" anyway?
I'd take chiropractics over meds anyday if it actually worked.
Are you in the "testing" phase of letting people know what you've done to see how they react? You must have suspected what her reaction would be..?What did your husband and kids say the surgery?
When I had my hysterectomy, there were a few women who were worried about
my emotional state and that I had given up a female part of my body. I was actually shocked and replied "Are you serious??? I've never been so darned happy or ever felt such relief in all my life!!"
Sheesh...If it's broken, fix it. If it can't be fixed, dump it.
Of course, you could try the chiropractor if she'll pay for it?
