Hey everyone, how are you?
My physio appointment yesterday went a lot better than expected. I was so relieved and exhausted from the anxiety.
Yesterday morning I was so anxious about my physio appointment. I had slept the night before, but only because I took some of my emergency medication for anxiety and panic attacks. I spent the morning sleeping and watching television, as England were playing in the rugby World Cup. Then in the afternoon I went to the polyclinic to my appointment. We first discussed how the past three weeks have been. I was able to explain clearly what had been going on and the pain I had been in. And she listened to what I had said. Which I was not expecting. I was expecting defensiveness, but it didn’t happen.
She is going to see me again at the end of the next month with a knee specialist. And we will decide then what to do next and if any tests are needed. Such as, an X-Ray or MRI. I am not a fan of MRIs but I will do it if it means getting an answer to my knee pain. I am going to continue doing the exercises as much as I possibly can. And continue to walk as much as I do each day, which is roughly a mile a day. As well as ice and rest as much as I can possibly can. As I get extremely bored when resting.
Today, is going to be dependant on how my knee is doing. I may go out to the art group, but they know that I may not be able to make it. I am expecting a parcel of a new game, which maybe slightly influencing my decision on if to go or not. I also have some writing that I need to get on with and reading that I want to do. I am hoping now that I have had my appointment with the physio that my anxiety will stay away for the time being. It did feel like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
