He Called Me Tippy

I told him, at least I'm not tipsy. It gave him a chuckle. I went to see my chiropractor this morning. He told me some of the reason I'm having sciatica is because I'm tippy, and showed me how I stand. I didn't ask him what causes that, but I'm going to on Friday when I see him again. I'm wondering if my eyes have anything to do with it. I have cataracts, and know that my eyes have caused me to lean my head to one side or the other in the past and needed to do something to correct that. I'm sure I wouldn't notice it in any of the pictures I've had taken, as I try my best to stand up straight for those and look as nice as possible. So now, I've got to be mentally aware of how I stand and try not to be tippy. Has anyone told you, you do something that needs fixing, such as your posture? Thanks for reading. I know the picture is sideways. It does that when the camera is turned for the long picture instead of the horizontal one.

I hope you follow his advice to correct your stance and hopefully, it will help your sciatica. My posture is perfect, thanks to my father reminding me to stand up straight and my grandmother reminding me to sit up straight. My free modeling class didn't hurt either.

I've never been told that I'm tippy, but I was told by my brother-in-law that all the Vance girls walk funny! LOL Thank heavens, now I'm a Jolly, instead:) I wear out the soul on one shoe faster, because of how I walk.

I'm wondering about that. There was a time when I needed to have a prism put in my lenses because I was hanging my head on my shoulder to see straight. So I'm wondering if my eyes are affecting the way I'm standing as well.

I have sciatica as well and haven't thought of my posture being at fault- although when I went to the physio-therapist they didn't mention it! I'll ask next time. Perhaps you should go in there 'tipsy' next time and see what he says----lol!

@just4him I am glad the sciatica seems gone. I know someone else who has that. Thinking about what might have caused it and if it goes away by itself. You need all the strength you can get to write your books and help people to learn about about Jesus.
yes my mom is trying to fix how i walk she just hated when i walk with my butt a bit waving on sides she said im deliberate but i mean it its not. many hated the way i walk because they thought im deliberate to get attention like i walk sexy but its just normal

A few years ago I discovered I literally could not get up and had to ring the doctor. His verdict was sciatica and thankfully the moment passed, but I do not remember being lop sided so much as pole axed! Whatever, I pray you are healed of it soon.
