So, I had my second physio appointment today. During the session, Tim (a.k.a. The Physiotherapist) said, "You're afraid of needles, right?"
I replied, "I never actually told you that..."
He said, "Yeah... but you are."
I said, "Well, kinda... but it doesn't matter. I just deal with it. Why?"
"You could use some accupuncture on this leg. It's pretty tight." He replied.
I found myself saying, "OK, yeah... sure... I'd trust you to do that."
Now, tell me... How can you trust a man, whom you've met only once before, to jab small pieces of metal into your body? (Multiple small pieces of metal!) Especially when those small pieces of metal are probably in your list of "Top 3 things I hate / fear most in the whole entire world"?
I can't even watch needles on TV.
And here I was... telling Tim he could do accupuncture on me.
Was I out of my mind?
I said, "I've never done this before, so you're gonna have to walk me through it."
He replied, "OK, no problem. You're not going to faint on me, are you?"
"Oh, no. Takes a lot more than that to get me to pass out."
And a few moments later the first needle went in my leg...
One thing I can say for sure: That is a hell of a way to learn body awareness! I think I was more aware of my body today than I have been, oh... possibly ever!
And I'm still alive to blog about it.
PS: Still barred from running and all lower body exercies (cardio, weights, etc.) until further notice... Apparently, my right knee is messed up but good.
