My Mom Trusted the Help That I Got for Her

After my mother refused to allow me to make an appointment so that she could see my doctor, I called a Santa Barbara chiropractor to ask if he could help my mom. He told me that he would do that best that he could and said I should bring my mom in as soon as possible. My mom said she felt comfortable seeing him, and I felt a little bit of relief because she is so incredibly stubborn. I needed her to be able to walk a little better again so that life wasn’t so hard for the two of us.

I’m a caretaker for my mom. I originally moved in when I noticed that she was getting very close to the point of not being able to live in her own apartment by herself anymore. This is because she was making a lot of poor decisions when left to her own devices. (more…)

Preventing Being Duped by Fake News Stories

When I was young I had no interest in politics. Then, when I was a teenager, a crisis happened, and the president intervened to rescue some hostages. It did not work out the way he intended, and I heard the adults giving all kinds of opinions. I saw them doing the same thing on Sundays after football games talking about how a quarter back did good or messed up. I guess that is where the term “armchair quarterbacking” comes from. I quietly sought facts over rhetoric, and am still doing it today by reading Trump News. It is a website that has all the articles being written about our president available in one location. I can filter through the news agencies I trust and leave out the rest. However, I rarely use a filter. I like reading the different perspectives out there, but I do insist that news comes from real news agencies. (more…)

I Finally Did Something for Me to Get My Smile Fixed

When I was a kid my parents took me to the dentist to get braces. He could not fit me for the braces at the time. They should have taken me to another dentist, but they didn’t. When I was a teenager I really disliked my teeth. I had one really crooked tooth, and the rest of them looked dull and almost yellow. Then I started getting cavities and had teeth pulled. I did not do anything about my smile until I was in my late 40s. It was then that the best dentist in Aurora CO helped me with a plan to get the smile I always wanted.

Would it have been better to have had my smile fixed as a kid? Certainly. (more…)
