i'm a wimp

being I pain slut and a masochist, plus a mother....as well has having broken many bones, I thought I was good with pain.

I have met my match.

her name is Michelle, she's 4'11" with a cherubic face a voice that never changes, never smiles and has no affect.... no matter what she is doing to me.

she calls herself a physical therapist. I call her the bitch from hell. not out loud though because she terrifies me.

she is not the least bit interested in me, my pain level or perhpas anything happening in my world. she sets me up and immediately walks away to play on her computer. is this normal ?

so 'im doing a set of ten and this lovely PT man comes over and says gently - mind if I correct your form, it will feel better and get you the result you need. he does after I tell him of a prior injury that restricts the movement of my left arm. and immediately I can feel the stretch i'm supposed to feel and not the pain I was feeling. as he is doing this she miraculously reappears. and with glaring eyes. sys oh yes, much better...do ten more I want to bite her leg.

at the end of a weary 45 minutes, she sits me down to pedal a machine with my arm and lovely man comes over to her says something and she moves to adjust the resistance to a far lighter one. I have to do two minutes forward and two minutes back...I start to cry . seriously. this is a torture. and now two days later my arm is still in pain.

I thought I was good with pain. pfft.

I hear him say as I leave, she should never have gone on that machine. and Michelle the Maniac shrugs.

My BFF and I have already figured out where to hide the body. but we need somebody strong to dig the hole......anyone?

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Well, if I were closer I'd help you out. The good news is that since she's so tiny she won't require a large hole.

But you'll thank her after she whips you back into shape and have recovered.... Maybe.

I have limited experience with physio, hurt more the next day. Perhaps this one is the wrong dor you? Could you see another one instead?

Personally, I would have her dig the hole before killing her. But I come from the ancient home of the Purple Gang and the land that vanished Jimmy Hoffa.

You SHOULD bite her leg. Then find a different therapist. If she's causing you to hurt that much, she's not doing her job and she's possibly causing you harm.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

This made me a little bit mad. In addition to being a bitch it sounds like she doesn’t know what she’s doing. It would be great if you could somehow switch to the other therapist.

& yeah...there’s a big difference between the fun kind of pain, and this.

Side story... a friend of mine who is a hard core masochist had shoulder surgery last week. He felt some pain the first day but claims that it’s been negligible since then. I said ‘well sure...when you have people kicking you in the balls on a regular basis, shoulder surgery is a walk in the park’. Snork.

Sorry to hear of you in pain my friend..She sounds like she has no idea of what she is doing and obviously the man does..Is he a doctor or PT himself? Can you not ask to trade PT's somehow and get one who cares more for her patients..Take care my friend...xo

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

Tell her you don’t want to see her anymore, you heard the guy say what he did and you need someone else. We're all here with our shovels!

Sorry to hear about your pain. Many years ago had to see a physical therapist for three months to treat a bulging disk. She was an excellent therapist.

Personally I think you need to change facilities or at least replace her. Especially since the other dude told her she was wrong to put you on that machine. I've been there and I changed facilities.I have an ice spear if it will help

I agree in either changing her or the facility. Physical therapy done improperly is worse than not doing it at all. However, I have a shovel and will travel
