To get off Cape Cod, you have to go over either one of two bridges unless you go by boat. There is a canal that separates us from the mainland. The problem for me has never been actually driving over the bridge. The problem has been leaving the Cape with me at the wheel of the car. I have left the Cape a few times in the last few years but only with a trusted driver. I only have three people I will drive over the bridge with: my daughter, my son and my wasband. They are willing to all drive the way I like to be driven: not too fast, no tailgating, and not minding if I close my eyes in heavy traffic on highways.
My new Chiropractor is in Plymouth, about a fifteen minute ride once you go over the bridge which is about 15 minutes from my house. The reason we chose him is he also has a practice on the Vineyard where my daughter works and she has been seeing him and he has helped her neck and headaches a lot. I’m not going to take the boat to the Vineyard to see him which means we have to go to Plymouth.
I have seen him about 6 times and I think he is really helping my lower back pain a lot.
I hate having to rely on everyone for rides so I have decided I am going to conquer this fear of driving off Cape. Yesterday’s drive was a complete success. I want to do it a few more times with someone and then I am going to attempt to do it alone.
When that happens it will be the first time I drive off Cape by myself in about 25 years. It has been a huge obstacle for me. It is an obstacle I
want am going to conquer.
I was looking at this contraption. Maybe I should buy it and just skip the chiropractor then I wouldn’t have to drive over the bridge.
I don’t know though. It looks like something you’d see in a torture chamber. But I think I should definitely watch this movie so I can see what my chiropractor does at night.
