Physical therapists are evil, evil people. The go into the field because they enjoy torturing people. Can you tell I had my first PT appointment today? It was not my first PT appointment ever. Sadly, I have a long history of PT appointments. I knew full well what pain I was in for today and this guy did not disappoint.
Seriously, he was very nice, except when he was yanking on my knee. He said I need to give up my “no pain, no gain” attitude. Ignoring pain will not make it go away. I have my list of exercises to do every day. Oh what fun. I have my new mantra, “If it hurts, stop.” That seems like common sense, but that’s not the way I deal with pain. I have to go back on Friday. Oh joy, I can hardly wait. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)
As I was sitting there with ice on my knee for twenty minutes at the end of my appointment, I was thinking, “Gee, if I had a CrackBerry, I could reading my email now.” Yes, Hubski that is a hint directed precisely at you.
