In the winter of 2006, I suffered a minor hip injury. I sustained the injury playing soccer and the muscles in my leg stretched so much that it chipped a piece of bone off my hip. I was told my a doctor to rest for 6 weeks and then I could resume playing soccer. 3 years later the injury was not better and I had to leave college on two separate occasions, once due to a psychosis in 2008 and once due to a manic depressive state in 2010. However, in the meantime both times leading up to these unusual states of mind I was recieving treatment on my hips and back. The college I attended, Davidson College a nationally known liberal arts institution, refused to listen to complaints about my back and hips when I first entered the school and as a result the injury worsened year by year. I finally got full body X Rays I originally needed and they revealed a crocked spine and slanted hips of about 1.25 inches. Therefore, the treatment I recieved on my back in 2008 sent a rush of feeling and emotion up my spinal chord and to my brain causing an overload of emotion. The same thing happen in 2010 when I started practicing yoga and then saw a chiropractor. My back was the issue the entire time and it was putting a severe strain on my brain. Medical professionals were too consumed by their own ideas to listen to me. I am on the road to recovery now through vitamins, a good diet, hot yoga 3 times a week, and chiropractor treatment. This recent manic episode almost sent me back to the hospital if I would have listened to another doctor, and at this juncture in my life I believe licensed medical doctors rarely know what they are talking about.
