Someone's Trying To Tell Me Something...
This all started the day I went to the neurologist's and heard the dreaded word "Chiari". On my way to the appt. I stopped at a gas station to grab a Mt. Dew, and on the window was a poster about a man who was just diagnosed with Chiari & Syringomyelia. I asked for a copy of this because I know 3 people who have Chiari. Two of them are young sisters, and the other one is a woman my age that works at the same school as the 2 sisters that have it. What are the odds? This is a rare disorder but 3 people in the same school that my children attend have Chiari. Hmmm, and now I see this poster and see that another person in my town has it. Not once did I think I was going to hear the doctor talking to me about it. So now I'm going to tell you about the problem I've been having with the newspaper company, and it might seem like I'm just rambling but it all comes together I promise. About a month ago a guy came to the door and was selling newspaper subscriptions to The Post. I thought it sounded like a good deal so I signed up. Two weeks later I get a bill for a paper that I never got so I called the office. They said it showed I was getting the paper, they said they were sorry, and they'd get it sent out and credit my bill. Still weeks later no paper, so after getting another bill I called and said cancel this and I'm done with your paper. Today we saw a newspaper in our driveway and I was shocked when I opened it up to see that it had an article about a rare brain disease called Chiari and how there needs to be more information for doctors. So...I order this paper a month ago, call twice to complain about not getting it, cancel it, and then get the one paper that is talking about something that I am being effected by. What are the odds? I really wonder if someone is trying to tell me something?
