Physical Therapy

July 25, 2013

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

It’s 11:33pm and my last physical therapy session was hours ago so hey, why not write about it? So, yes, my last physical therapy appointment was today and while I technically did not have to do my exercises I decided to do them anyway as it’s best to stay in practice than to…you know…not. But yeah, it felt good. I felt a little anxious as I’ve spent 5 months working on my shoulders and hand and the routine was a great routine and I enjoyed it and…now what?

I’m still in PA for one more week and I really have nothing to fill my time with except gaming and starting to pack, but I am hanging out with two friends tomorrow and that’ll be fun. Yeah…the routine is finished but my work isn’t. My hand is still fairly weak and my shoulders still need some work and I do have exercises I can do for both. I am not wasting this opportunity I’ve been given to fight back against this disability that I’ve carried with me since birth.

Yes, yes, I default to my left hand and overall it’s OK but just OK and up until the last few months I had no improvement with my hand’s movement. So I feel I owe it to myself and everyone involved that got me to this point to keep going and to keep striving for improvement. My only regret is that I couldn’t do more, but that’s the way things go: you move on and things change and life just sort of keeps going on whether you’re involved or not and….well….I’m not taking things for granted this time. I am going to be singularly focused on fixing this hand, on fixing me, and on getting things back to where I’m actually happy–not….slap-happy, but contentedly happy.

Lastly I want to thank the staff at Drayer Physical Therapy for giving me this chance to feel some sort of normalcy with my hand. And I wish to thank personally (I hope I don’t screw these names up) :

Ally (sp?)
And Rachel

You all were great and thank you for the support, help, and just all around being great people to work with.
