just got back from the chiropractor. he took pictures of my spine and showed me where it’s screwed up and then crunched me and now i have different pain in a different place. he managed one significant crunch which feels eight thousand times better, sort of in the upper part of my lower back on the left side. the lower stuff is still pretty painful, especially on the right side. but i go back again tomorrow, and i’m bloody well going to keep going back until my spine no longer wanders off to the right from my breastbone to my tailbone.
