Beliefs, Opinions and Respect

It's been a while since I've posted to my blog but I'm feeling like I need to just get something off my chest so I'm going to take this opportunity to have a huge vent/whinge. Just post up some thoughts and feelings into the world wide intraweb for all my fellow older gamers to read and perhaps comment on

Five weeks ago, we were blessed with our 3rd child. A little (well not so little) baby girl. Something that I've not told everyone is that it was a VERY difficult birth for my wife, to the point where I feared for her life. She spent a night in ICU after losing 3 litres of blood.

The damage was done by what they call a "shoulder distocia" but I digress somewhat. I've never been a firm believer in "chiropractors" but after my first child was breach and after trying almost everything to get her to settle and stop crying, we took her to see a chiropractor. The whole trip there, my daughter cried and the whole trip home, she slept. It was an immediate positive response. We've not needed to go again.

So after such a traumatic birth with our third, we just today took her to see a chiropractor as well. My wife tells me it's another immediate positive response.

Now, I'm not suggesting either way, whether a chiropractor is ... as some might suggest, a "quack", but my experience has only ever been positive. Sharing this with a work colleague though, I was bombarded for about 15minutes about how they're quacks and basically how stupid, naive and gullible I am to see one. I immediately saw red

I don't care if you don't subscribe to my beliefs, but give me the respect to at least have them. I'm a man that believes in God, let me have that belief. I don't mind if you want to ask me questions of why or even debate it, but at least be open to the possibility that you could be wrong. I've found this colleague to be EXTREMELY narrow minded, that if someones opinions don't line up with his, then they're wrong.

Just pisses me off

    I've gotten over getting pissed off with people who's contrary opinion runs in opposite to my experience. If they wish to think themselves right when they are in fact wrong, it's they who suffer in the long term.

    I know of a guy who's back is so bad, that he can barely walk, bend or lead a normal life. He won't see a chiropractor about it as he thinks they are all shonks and charlatans - so he just goes on suffering /shrug.

    Just accept the fact that some people are as dumb as posts when it comes to some aspects of life. It makes dealing with them just that much easier.
