I Should Have Listened to My Wife


One morning when I woke up, my back was hurting and I couldn’t figure out why. I put some ointment on it, but that only worked for a little while until it wore off. My wife kept telling me to make an appointment with one of the Cary chiropractors before my back got worse, but I didn’t listen to her. I went to work like I usually do, and while I was sitting at my desk, the pain became worse. I didn’t bring any ointment with me, and I really couldn’t have put it on at work anyway because the smell would have been so strong that it would have filled the entire office.

Since I didn’t have any pain medication, nor did anyone else, I had to work through the pain. Every minute felt like an hour in itself, as I was sitting at my desk typing line after line of code. Every position I sat in was uncomfortable, and I couldn’t stand up without feeling the pain. During my lunch break, I had to drive to a nearby drug store and buy some pain medicine. Because of the line in the store, there really wasn’t enough time to buy the medicine and get something to eat from a restaurant, so I just bought some snacks from the store.

The pain medicine got the through the rest of the day, and as soon as work was over, I used my phone to make an appointment with a chiropractor. I was willing to take the day off for an appointment. When I got home, I told my wife about my back hurting all day. Instead of gloating and telling me how right she was, she just offered to rub my back. I’m so glad I married her. The back rub helped me get through the night.
