I finally made my case for getting pool therapy today. I had been planning on it for, oh,
weeks months years. I don’t know yet if my family doctor will make the recommendation or not. They said they would call back later today, but the call to them was really late, so I’m guessing it will be at least tomorrow before I hear anything. My mom wants to go through it again, so she asked for her doctor to set her up as well. It will probably be easier for her.
I had asked a former doctor to make the referral, but he said that there was absolutely no reason for me to have pool therapy. He said there was nothing that it could do to help my pain or my joints. Of course, he was also the guy who used to say that hurting all the time was normal, so maybe I shouldn’t have really believed him all that much.
I just need to get my body to a place where it won’t exhaust me or do actually physical harm to me when I try to exercise, because I really need to get to exercising more often. I know that if I were to start doing too much right now that my body would probably just buckle under and I might have even more problems in the long run. It’s better to try to get it to a healthier spot first.
