a bit miffed
Thursday, May 12, 2016
So, yesterday I had physical therapy and while I generally enjoy it ... not so much yesterday. It still bugs me I guess because I am still thinking on it. That's not my style; once something it over it's usually done in my head. But I still am miffed about yesterday. I pretty much worked through my exercises and that part was fine, different but fine; it's the whole way I felt ... how do I explain this? I'm no princess or attention hog, in fact the less attention the better but please don't ignore me entirely!
It started pretty much the same and I worked with this guy before, just not in the pool. First it was pretty normal, hey how are you and what's been going on... but became pretty clear this guy had no clue what to talk to me about and that what I said didn't matter. See, I am in the pool working through the stuff he tells me to do while he sits on the sideline with a timer and my chart. Pretty much from the get go he changed my routine, upped the time and had me do sequences out of order. That part is fine and I understand change or individual style... but while I worked out he sat and fidgeted. He didn't want to be there and it became pretty clear when he opened the door from the pool room to the main therapy room... hello drafty! The pool room was nice and warm and then became pretty quickly chilled from the air conditioning coming in from the open door. He put a chair in the doorway to keep it open and walked away. Then he came back every time the timer beeped so he could give me new instructions. Every once in awhile he popped in to ask how I was feeling, but didn't listen to my tone or what I had to say... he also skipped part of my workout routine. While I usually swim after my session I didn't feel it yesterday and was actually upset about the thoughtless treatment, kind of felt dismissed while I was there. I could have just paddled around in the water and he would have not been wiser... but in my true non-confront fashion I didn't say anything... and that is on me!
