I'm Dr. Karen May,
...and I have neuropathy too.
Mine is from a post-surgical complication that caused paralysis and damaged the nerves on the dominant side of my body. I understand the pain you face every day and the hopelessness that you feel. I'm here to tell you that there is hope and there is healing! While I can no longer do chiropractic adjustments and manipulations, God has given me a whole new way to serve you! That's by offering a natural, effective treatment for neuropathy. I hope I get the opportunity to earn your business and help you get your life back! We'll be here when you're ready.
Yours in God and Health!
Dr. Karen E. May
Doctor of Chiropractic, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Certified in Chronic Intractable Pain and Neuropathy.
Steve and I have been together for 20 years! I cannot imagine life without him leading me, guiding me and walking with me. We have three amazing kids who are teens and pre-teens who keep us on our toes with school, church, sports, and music. We always find time to sit down a few nights a week for family meal regardless.
I love to refresh myself by spending time in the woods and near water. Lake Michigan is my ultimate any time of year. I love to read and find myself reading mostly for education because I love it, but when I read for pleasure, it is sappy and usually makes me cry. Right now my body is still healing so my long hikes don't happen like I would like since I cannot carry my hiking pack on my shoulder. Soon, that will return too and I will find an adventure to tackle again!
When I had no use of my arm for over 2.5 months, it was a really dark place for me. Though I love my doctors, they did not offer me any hope besides medication and wait for 3 years.
It was very frustrating because I feel like they did not understand. In truth, they didn't. I don't want anyone to have to experience that. But, there is hope. I am a faith based person and relied fully on my relationship with Jesus to help me in the darkest moments. I would be happy to share my testimony that I recorded if you ask.
But by relying on my faith, I found hope for a better day. I found solutions to help not only me but many others that I would never have been looking for if I stayed in the self pity that was so easy to give into.
Please know that even if you do not have faith, it takes getting up and out of bed when you don't want to. It takes doing something for someone else to get us out of our heads because giving is always better than receiving. It takes knowing that you can never give up regardless of your situation.
Dig deep when you thought you could not go any further. Rest when your body says rest, it is fully ok not to be able to do everything you used to. It is ok to be frustrated at what your limitations are. Talk to someone to help you process what you are going through.
Just never give up! You are loved!
