I had my second ‘dose’ of acupuncture today. I had my first last week, it didn’t seem to do a thing. I thought I might feel something after today. Nope! Nothing! If possible, I actually felt worse.
I had attended today’s appointment on my own, as mum was on holiday, dad was working. My brother: he just wanted his bed! Didn’t like the thought of getting up before 11am! I didn’t think there would be any problem, I didn’t mind going on my own. I always park in the disabled bays outside the main entrance. Today though, there weren’t any. So I parked in the main car park, which is quite a way from the physio dept. By the time I came to go back to the car after my physio session, I could barely lift my leg in order to walk. I kind of dragged it along, shuffling like an old woman. I had a major problem getting into the car; it seems to get harder each day.
My hip was twinging like mad on the journey home, which took about 5 mins! I spent the rest of the day dosing up on pain relief & cursing whoever and whatever I could, in order to express my pain & frustration! My poor brother….
What have I learnt from today? To always have someone with me incase I need help e.g. to use my wheelchair. Don’t think I will be going many places alone from now on. What fun that will be.
