Pomp and Circumstance

I decided to graduate myself from PT tonight. After all, I'm doing well... my back only hurts occasionally. I walk pretty well, now and I can sit for most of the day at work. If only the numbness and burning sensation would go away.

Either way, I'm doing great and I decided that that was enough PT. Even told my therapist about it.

His reaction? Well, you can guess.

"Uh, Kris? You say you still have numbness. We are still concerned about that. You still have the burning in your groin and thigh? Still need to pinpoint what nerve is pinched and causing that. And if we let you go now? Well, you will forget you're injured, overdo and reinjure yourself. Is that right?"

Okay, yeah. He's got me pegged.

So, I didn't get my cap and gown tonight.

You are toooooooo funny! Graduate yourself from PT? Krista went for PT for almost 7 months with her herniated disc before she finally decided it had done all it could do and she was tired of going. You had better keep going girlfriend!
