Kind Words and X-Rays


I was purely amazed by the wonderful outpouring of comments I have received over the last few day. Thank you to all who have commented with kind and encouraging words in regards to my recent 5K. My good friend, Eric from Honey I Shrunk The Grief, even posted a link to last night’s blog entry on his personal and his blog’s Facebook page, his words really touched my heart. I will share them with you because they brought tears to my eyes this afternoon, happy tears.

“Gmorning Sunshine! :) I’m excited to share an Inspirational blog post my friend Jessica wrote describing her experiences with her first 5K run! I believe any runner — or anyone trying something new and challenging — will appreciate this. And while you’re at her post, please consider leaving her a comment telling her how awesome she is! We all need to be reminded of just how incredible we are…and to be recognized for our achievements and bravery. This life is tough! Thank goodness we have each other to not only get through it…but to Thrive in it! Wishing you all an enjoyable “run” today…filled with Thrive! :)”.

This really cheered up my day since I was a little day since it was a co-worker’s last day today. I know our school is closing in a few weeks when the school year lets out on the 7th. But I am still sad since she made my days at work enjoyable. Her and I are definitely keeping in touch but the next few weeks will honestly suck without her. :(

I don’t remember if I mentioned that I want back to see a chiropractor last week or not. I saw her last Wednesday for an exam and x-rays and then came back to go over the x-rays and start treatment. I decided to return to chiropractic treatments since my headaches had return and are worse than before. I got to see some x-rays of my neck and I was amazed to learn that the curve of my neck is reversed which explains the severe headaches and neck pain all the time. We are going to work on reserving the curve of my neck with chiropractic treatments and at home exercises. We are also going to look into whether or not I have an food sensitivities that make my headaches worse. Relief is on the way I hope!

  1. Jessica, this post made MY day. I’m so glad to hear that my words and my sharing of your awesome post yesterday meant so much to you. And thank you for so generously sharing the link to my book within your blog. So kind of you.

    I’m sorry to hear that your co-worker’s last day was yesterday. Blah. Change is so hard sometimes…especially when it involves people we care about. I’m glad to hear that you two are going to keep in touch.

    Also glad to hear that your x-rays offered some hope for headache relief! And I thought those x-rays you posted were fascinating! Our bodies are like one big science project! I’ve often thought about how cool it would be if we all had see-through skin!!
