Colour me shocked!

June 9, 2010

At the end of my physiotherapy sessions for my Hypermobility, I was referred to a local scheme designed to help improve fitness levels and strengthen bodies of those who have been or are chronically ill for whatever reason.

Today was my second appointment and as part of the formfilling and progression stats, my weight was taken.  I, due to previous experiences, preempted her words at this.

Me: “I know I’m quite a bit overweight at the moment,”
Therapist: “Well that’s to be expected. With your pain and problems, it’ll be hard to be active enough.”
Me: *trying hard not to fall off the chair in shock*

Finally a health professional who gets it!


Intro post

April 7, 2010

I’ve decided to set up a separate blog where I can talk specificially about disability issuses and my disability, often in more detail than I would in my fandom journal.

You are welcome to have a nosey about; I’m not sure how often I will post here though, as most of my small, everyday complaints will be posted in my journal.
