This week was my first ever physio appointment. Having never had physio before I wasn’t sure what I expected. In my mind I was imagining some sort of fast paced exercise routine that left me feeling ten times dizzier than when I arrived. Thankfully it turned out to be much gentler. The most strenuous part was arriving at the wrong entrance and a trying to be helpful man marching along the corridor to take me to the right place. I felt like saying something but ended up going for my usual approach of not saying anything while trying to shuffle along at a reasonable pace and not topple over in the process. Then it was an hour of questions and gentle pushing on limbs. I was so impressed with how lovely everyone was and the location. This is the garden and they even had sheep!
I am also so grateful to the MS Society for funding the treatment here as otherwise the wait was 6 months!
It’s been a bumper week as I also got to see my neurologist after two years (the last time being when I was diagnosed). He’s sending me off for a brain scan to see how my MS has progressed. Really can’t decide if I like this idea or not. On the one hand, if it’s good news that’s great! But if it’s not I think I would rather carry on pottering around oblivious to this fact. We shall just have to wait and see. If it’s worse I doubt I’ll be going back for anymore though!
