A Crazy Event That I Couldn’t Avoid

Wednesday Apr 19, 2017

I was shopping in the grocery store one day and a couple of people got into a fight. They seemingly started arguing over nothing and started getting violent with each other. I wanted no part of their bout, so I tried to move out of the way, but I didn’t make it in time. They pushed me into the side of one of the aisles and I hit my back. I fell over and was able to get up again, but I had a pain so great that I needed a Huntington chiropractor to take care of it.

The chiropractor told me that I had some bruising and muscle tearing, but I was lucky that I didn’t have any broken bones. I was given medicine to take care of the pain and given orders to rest while my back was healing. I’m retired, so I don’t have to worry about going in for work, but I do like to live an active lifestyle, and having to rest due to a back injury did put a halt to that lifestyle. I was supposed to go roller blading the next day, but I couldn’t because of my injury. Instead I was sitting at home, watching television from my bed.

My back did eventually heal and I was able to resume my active life. When I went back to the same grocery store as before, I looked around to make sure that those two guys who got into a fight weren’t there again. The store manager told me that he banned the two men from coming there, which was a relief. If those two men want to fight each other, they can go do it in someone else’s grocery store and save the rest of us the pain. I hope no one else trys to follow their lead.
