On my feet

After being scolded by a few people, here's an update.

I'm much better than I had been. The horrible ringing has toned way down, thanks to the help of a chiropractor. Although I had used alternative medicine before, I had never been to a chiropractor. My ears went from raging to annoying ringing. It is still hard to deal with the persistent ringing each day and am typically mentally and physically exhausted around dinner time, but they are getting slightly better all the time.

Thank you all for your prayers. I really appreciate them and hope you continue to pray for my complete healing.

I was even well enough to go on with my previously planned Usborne book show last Thursday night. Someone came late, walked in the door and managed to win the door prize before she had even sat down. Wish I had luck and panache like that :)

I am hoping to post something other than medical updates soon! Now that my head can hold a complete thought instead of just hearing ringing!! I'm still seeing the chiro several times a week (and will be going in to see a doc about a white noise device to help my brain learn to not hear the noise, not a cure, just a way to cope) and have a few other developments going on around here (nothing bad) that are needing attention, not to mention that I think I was a homeschooler...oh, yeah school. Still fitting that in in between appointments.

I think my angel gave me the foresight to plan a week off of school next week since I will need it to catch up from the week I was in bed. Surprisingly, I'm pretty much on track!

Thank God for getting me to this point...now if He would just completely stop the noise...

Again, thank you all so much for your prayers and concern!

Will pray the Rosary for you now.

Chiropractors rock. We are putting appts around homeschooling too. Hehehe.
I'm glad you are getting better-and I would be interested if the tinnitus thing is cured by the chiro (or pyrocracktor as my 4yr old dd calls hers)
