The Silent Killer

I just wanted to inform you all about one of the many silent killers that are out there. I was a naive individual who would never imagine that it could happen to me. However, it did and it began with a sprained ankle and bike accident. I was an active person who loved to play volleyball, enjoyed music, movies, and I could walk for distance on end without any pain. Yet, as the years progressed I couldn’t tolerate my pain anymore.

When I was about sixteen years old, I had a bike accident. I was riding my bike to school early in the morning when I was struck down by a car. I went to the hospital of course, but the ER never ran an x-ray on my neck or body. They were more concerned with my head, which of course was still serious. However, later on in life, I would never have imagined that this bike accident would cause me so much pain throughout my entire life. I would lose my balance while walking randomly and fall without tripping on anything. I thought I was only being clumsy, but in reality it was something so severe.

I am not ashamed to admit that I come from a poor family household. I didn’t want to put the burden onto anyone else in the family, so I struggled with this condition alone without realizing what it was. I didn’t check myself into the hospital because I knew I wouldn’t be able to pay for the medical bills. I was stubborn into getting myself checked in because of PRIDE. I had to learn how to let go of my pride in order to work for God and for him to FORGIVE me in my stubbornness. 

Ever since I started to attend church, my pastor’s wife loved me unconditionally and I have never had that feeling from a stranger I barely knew before. She worried for my condition because she knew I was struggling. And with her love and undivided attention, she prayed and gave me the courage to go to a chiropractor.  After my consolation with my doctors, I had a misaligned spinal cord and a phase one neck reversal. “Spinal cord injuries may result from falls, diseases like polio or spina bifida (a disorder involving incomplete development of the brain, spinal cord, and/or their protective coverings), motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, industrial accidents, and assaults, among other causes. If the spine is weak because of another condition, such as arthritis, minor injuries can cause spinal cord trauma” (WebMD).

The pictures I have provided are what you will need to learn in order to be aware of how sensitive your spinal cord is and how important it is to keep it normal. Ask yourself how tired you have been lately. How dizzy you are? If you have been having nosebleeds, hard time driving your vehicle, neck problems, lower or upper back pains and how you’re positioning is like in bed. If you’re in pain, it’s time to go visit a Chiropractor. Trust me it’s worth it and the time to be healed. Drugs will only numb the pain it will never make the pain go away forever.

I know what physical pain feels like: back pain, knee, ankle and neck pains. I have been taking pain killers to make them go away forever, I have been on pain killers for more than a year and it gets worse because I take more pills than what the doctor would usually recommend. I take about five to six pain killers to not feel my every pain. However, since going to my chiropractic sessions I learned that I had some blockages on my nerves. I started going three times a week, narrowing it down to two times a week and now once a week. I loved every single minute of my time after my session because I didn’t feel the pain anymore. I felt like I could do anything. I didn’t hurt. So, the Lord had provided me a way to deal with my pain. Now, I am giving you all the insight as to why you are hurting.


Your health is more important than how much you can afford. So, I went to see my chiropractors to let them know that I am unemployed and strap for cash. I don’t have any other income coming my way because I am still searching for a job to gain a foothold into performing God’s work he has for me. So please, on the side of my blog I have a donation button for anyone who is willing to help me pay for my medical expenses. I pray that God will bless you to whatever amount you settle on. I also pray that I helped you out in some way shape or form to discover why your in pain. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
