Mark Twain said. “(the) right way to do an autobiography (is to) start it at no particular time of your life; wander at your free will all over your life; talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment; drop it the moment its interest threatens to pale, and turn your talk upon the new and more interesting thing that has intruded itself into your mind meantime.”

"Doctors Don't Always Bury Their Mistakes" documents my epic quest for healing. I followed the advice of conventional physicians, podiatrists, orthopedists, neurologists, anesthesiologist/pain specialists, chiropractors and even an acupuncturist to no avail. What started out as a silly, klutzy accident—a bottle of salad dressing dropped on my foot, and was then compounded by stubbing a toe and breaking the same foot—became a decade of medical malpractice, financial tribulation, and a feeling of complete helplessness and hopelessness. What took seconds to do, literally took years to get past.
