How much?

It seems I have to pay a certain amount of my treatments, the 1st €170 to be exact, got a bill in last week and asked the physio about it today. She explained it was the norm..

oh kay...well I guess thats just how it is here with insurance based healthcare there's usually something to fork out.

session was uneventful, am definitioly feeling the area around the surgery site is much softer and more pliable, even if a lump does build up I find I can smooth it away progress.

A very relaxing and enjoyable facial today, hopefully not follow up pain like last time.

Trainee sadist

Today my physio had a student/intern in and asked if it was ok if she try out a few moves...I had no issue with that and in fact becuase she was so scared to hurt me, it was actually a very nice head/shoulders/facial massage in the end, interspersed with some harder painful bits when she was being shown how to do it properly...whimper.

I'll be interesting to see how long it takes for her not to care if she's hurting me :), then she can graduate.

A few hours later though my face was really sore and I guess even the gentle stuff does something.

I have my referral letter for my depression councilling, I need to give them a call to arrange times etc. I also got a script for 90 days worth of Prozac to keep me chilled out...then promptly lost the drugs on the way back from the pharmacy...I had to go back to the docs today to get replacements...ah well.

All taped up

As a result of some increased oedema and general swelling my Physio has taped up my face again in an effort to ease the flow, so to speak. Going to look a bit silly for the rest of the day but I don't mind giving it a go.

Physio was a little painful at times, as usual, but no real issues.

Depression is definitly lifting, I am feeling a lot more capable and while I won't go as far as saying I look forward to the challenges of the day, I'm not dreading them, which is good, consdiering I have a lot of school marking to get through as quickly as I can manage so I can look forward to an easy evening.

Doctor has sorted out a referral letter for me to go see the depression therapist and we'll hopefully start that pretty soon to round things off.

More physio next week.
