A friend was moving into a new home and needed some help with his belongings. Knowing how difficult and time consuming the relocation process can be, I gladly volunteered to assist him. His girlfriend pulled up in the moving truck and we proceeded to get to work. A couple of other guys had agreed to help us so, expecting some additional help to arrive at some point, we began with the more manageable items and left the heavier stuff for later.
The hours came and went and no one ever showed up to assist. To avoid any further charges, we decided to unload the larger items ourselves so the truck could be returned that day. Everything was going well until we attempted to lift the sofa and I felt the most horrendous pain shoot down my back. Instantly, I was thrust into agony from the pain. For the next few days I was basically bed-ridden and could hardly move. I tried every type of painkiller I had available but received very little relief. Another friend suggested acupuncture Manchester but, since I had never tried it, I was quite skeptical. Finally, I grew desperate and agreed to give it a shot. To my surprise it turned out to be a great remedy and I kicked myself for being so stubborn and close-minded about the whole thing. It is human nature to resist change and the unknown but the incident really taught me a lesson and I don’t intend to make that mistake again as I have gained a new perspective on being open to new experiences.
