Off I went, on Monday, to attend my first physiotherapy appointment at the Gibert Bain Hospital (which we Shetlanders affectionately and appropriately refer to as the GBH). Karen, the physiotherapist, prodded all round my spine and asked a whole lot of pertinent questions, then made me do some exercises which are to form part of my daily routine from now until Thursday 4th December, the date of my next appointment. Now, routines and I don't get on, and I'm supposed to do mine twice daily. On Tuesday I forgot about it completely, on Wednesday I did it once, on Thursday twice, Friday once, and totally forgot about it again on Saturday. Writing this blog reminded me about it, so I've just done it again. Actually I don't know if the problem is spinal at all - the pain is just as liable to be round the sides of what used to be my waist as in my back. What I've probably got is a recurrence of my hypochondria!
