I am SO glad I saw Dr. Painless this week, even though I didn’t think I needed to.
Because if you walk into PT on a Tuesday morning and say your arm is feeling pretty good (for the first time EVER!!!) ….
You will be in teeth clenching pain by Tuesday night.
What have I learned from this experience?
• Keep Dr. Painless in my life forever and never take him for granted.
• Take drug prescriptions from Dr. Painless and stash the drugs for pain emergencies just like this one, regardless of whether or not I think I’ll end up needing those drugs.
• Prescription pain meds can’t really touch the pain when my arm goes THIS bat shit crazy.
• Next time I see Dr. Painless I need to ask for stronger drugs.
• Screw that. I’m going to call him today and ask him for stronger drugs.
• Writing blog posts while on pain meds doesn’t distract me from the f*cking intensity that lives within my arm/shoulder nerves.
• Never trust your physical therapist no matter how much he looks like Paul Newman. (Especially when he gives you fake-innocent-sexy eyes when he makes you unnaturally-bendy causing you to yelp and say “OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!!”)
• Never tell your physical therapist you’re “doing pretty well this week,” if you want to continue doing pretty well this week.
• Yes, that means it’s perfectly okay to lie to your PT.
• It’s also perfecty acceptable to send your physical therapist obscene text messages in all capital letters regardless of the time of
day night it is. (After all, it’s his FAULT you are swearing out loud instead of sleeping.)
• On a completely different topic, I received several emails/questions regarding the camera I mentioned pre-ordering in yesterday’s post. I will do an entire post regarding the camera once I’m using it, but in the meantime ….
• The Sony RX1R is what I would consider a “small niche” camera. It isn’t for everyone. In fact, it isn’t for MOST people. (Although, I’m sure Sony would be happy to take everyone’s money.)
• The RX1R is expected to begin shipping at the end of this month, but I’ve been told orders already exceed initial inbound shipments from Sony. In other words, I have no idea when I’ll actually be receiving the camera or how long of a wait you might have if you order one.
• If you’re looking for a small, good, camera to sneak into concerts, I would suggest the Sony NEX7 with a compatible zoom lens. It would better suit your needs and it’s less expensive.
• I promise to write some camera/photography posts for you soon.
• Did I mention – Ouch?!
