When The Body Says Stop

November 13, 2017

Life is very hectic because we have so many tasks to complete. The everyday life demands a lot from us. We do our best to please each one that is part of our lives such as the boss, partner/family, friends and so on, and sometimes it can be hard to get through even the everyday tasks since life is so much more demanding than it used to be before. The problem comes when something extra on top of everything gets into to your head, which can result in your body saying stop.

I also have a very hectic life where my job requires a lot of physical work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and my life, but it demands a lot of my energy at times. However, lately I have dealt with a lot of extra thoughts since there has been some things happening in my family. My family is very close to me even though they are not close geographically. I live on the other side of the planet and therefor I don’t have the opportunity to see them a lot. I am used to it so I don’t think so much about except when there are things happening to them as lately.

First, I got the news that my sisters husband got killed in Brazil which was a completely shock to everyone of us. I can only imagine what she is going through and it kills me not being able to be there and support her while wiping of her tears. Then, I got a another shocking news. My grandmother was brought in a hurry to the hospital. The doctors said that it was possible that she had to cut of her legs. She has not gotten the full diagnose yet since they don’t have any heath insurance in Brazil and this is very costly.

Therefore, I have worked double shifts in order to be able to send some money to Brazil. My life has been twice as busy as it used to be, while dealing with all these thoughts in my head. Last Friday, I worked 16 hours and had a early shift on Saturday. When I woke up on Saturday I felt a strong pain in my neck. I called my boyfriend after work telling him about it and he suggested that I had slept in a wrong position that night. I managed to get up on Sunday as well but I could not complete that shift due to the heavy pain I was in.

 

Today, I wanted to go the chiropractor to get help with my neck problems, but ended up at a Naprapath.  Even though my intention was attending a chiropractor I actually thing it was better to attend a naprapath since she was working on the muscles first. My boyfriend picked me up after he was done working and went together with me. When I arrived at the clinic, a nice woman met me and we sat down for a talk. The funny thing was that the clinic was on the other side of the down and this woman is actually living across the road from where we live. Small city, haha. After doing many examination she could explain why I had  so much pain on my neck.

She told me that I was suffering from something that is caused by too much stress and even the smallest thing could cause the problems. She compared my problems to a glass full of water where a single drop could make the water in the glas to go over the edge. However, after she was done I felt a lot better and now I can actually turn my head. She gave me some exercises that I am doing tonight and hopefully I will be even better when I am attending work tomorrow.

 

If you have neck problems I can definitely recommend going to a naprapath, and even better if you are in Trondheim you have the chance to visit the clinic that helped me and get help from the skilled woman that helped me today, I think her name is Ingrid if I’m not wrong. The clinic is called “Din naprapat og helseklinikk” and they have clinics in other citys as well. I am so glad to finally see an end to my neck problems because not being able to turn your head is very frustrating. Now I can finally look forward to go to work tomorrow.
