Saturday morning, I found myself lying on a French hospital bed in agony.
Well, on Thursday I drove over to France, taking the Channel Tunnel.
It was a rather long drive, around five hours.
Everything seemed fine until I sat down to watch a movie on the couch and my back started to ache.
I didn’t think too much of it..
I put up with the pain…
I went to bed, and then woke up at two in the morning in absolute agony…
Nothing seemed to work.
In the morning I even visited a French chiropractor but this was no help….
By Saturday morning I was at my wits end….
Dave took me to the hospital.
This was my first experience of a French hospital…
And my first experience of a French accident and emergency department.
In the UK, it can be several hours before somebody sees you…
So I wasn’t expecting to be seen quickly.
However, I was amazed…
We’d only been there for about 20 minutes, and I was already being seen by a doctor!!
The doctor sent me home with some painkillers and some muscle relaxant pills.
After being home for a few hours, I realised that the painkillers and the muscle relaxant pills weren’t working at all.
But then my phone rang…
It was Dr. Cynthia Boccara.
I met Cynthia on the internet marketers cruise…
- Stage authority…
- How to have amazing presence…
- How to walk properly…
- And how to present on stage…
it was absolutely amazing!!
Now, Cynthia is also a chiropractor, so she knows a thing or two about bad backs.
Talk about somebody phoning you at the right time!
Straight away Cynthia took control of the situation.
She told me I had to put an ice pack on my back & take a cold shower.
She also walked me through several exercises.
I ended up being on the phone with her for about 45 minutes.
And you know what, after that 45 minutes the pain started to stop!!….
That night I carried on with the exercises and the ice pack on my back…
By the morning my back pain was almost gone.
It just shows when you have a mentor….
Somebody who really knows what they’re doing, it can be worth its weight in gold….
I’ve kept up with the cold showers, and went for a swim in an outdoor swimming pool here in France.
Yesterday I even went to the beach and swam in the sea at seven o’clock in the morning!!
I did get some strange looks from the locals, who thought I was quite mad swimming in the ocean in France at this time of year.
Anyway, I’ve had to delay my trip back to the UK…
There’s no way I can do a five hour car journey, as I’m worried that my back might play up again.
So, I’m coming back to the UK tomorrow, and taking the ferry instead.
