At age 6, I developed severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in every joint of my body. I could barely walk and therefore when we went out as a family I had to be carried or pushed in a wheelchair. Initially I could not go to school and was tutored at home. Eventually I was able to go to school for 1/2 days only. At age 11 my mother hurt her back and went to the chiropractor. She explained my situation to him. He told her to bring me in for an adjustment. "What do you have to lose?" he said. Thank God she listened to him. After a while my joints began to loosen up and hurt much less and I was able to walk better. Then I became well enough to ride a bicycle. Soon I was able to attend school full time and eventually able to participate in gym. Today my rheumatoid arthritis is inactive but I have to live with damage it left behind. I take no medication for the pain. I think the fact that I live with pain everyday and have to adapt my lifestyle makes me more understanding (empathetic) of my patient's situation than other doctors might be. "You can't really understand something unless you've been through it yourself." It's what motivates me to work harder.
