My physio is a sadist

And she's such a sweet young thing too*.

"See if you can do this..."
"Try and get it a little higher..."
"Ok, now try this..."
"Try and stretch your arm up and hold..."
"Bend it this way..."
"And relax..."

"And repeat these new exercises along with the stretches each day. Come and see me in two weeks and I'll stretch you on the rack for a while. Yes, pain is normal. Pain is good. I love pain. Mwahahahhaaha"

So far 2010 has been the year of pain and strange noises. Next week we go to see the Fertile Nurse, let's hope it will also be the year of good news... or at the very least, not bad news.


*Doesn't that make me seem old?
Have you noticed how young policemen are these days?
And why does everyone mumble on tv these days?


  1. This post made me laugh :)

    Yes, policemen and doctors are SO YOUNG!

  2. I'm finding pains in all kinds of odd places lately, maybe it's my age. Anyhow, I had been considering some physio to help me with my aches and pains but now I'm rethinking it...Lol. Sending you hugs Barb.

  3. Poor baby and don't you think the physiotherapist should just wear black leather and be done w/it?
    Sending good thoughts for the Fertile nurse.

  4. Some 12 year old physical therapist once bent my knee in a way that I didn't think was humanly possible. I think they get bonus points for making you say Ghuumph.

  5. I am sorry that I find your pain funny..... well, at least the way you describe! A sense of humor can only help, well, unless laughing hurts!

  6. hmmmmm....I mumble to myself many many times,"oh it is hard to grow old" have started telling my students that I am like their mom so I guess once I lost Akul, I branded myself. I so want you to have good news.
