It wasn't that they did anything unusual or unexpected. It's just that you know when they said symptoms might be worse? Ayep. Also the physical therapist revised the estimate of worse-ness from "a couple weeks" to "a month." Freakin' yay.
I'm supposed to do some of the exercises three times a day. Not all of the ones I did in clinic, because I'm not ready for them without trained spotters yet. I am exhausted, dizzy, and overclocked. And the stuff I did was so small.
This is not the hopeless kind of frustration/suckage, so nobody needs to reassure me that sometimes it has to be this way to get better. I know that.
It's also not the "I have the worst life ever" kind of suckage, so I don't need to be reminded on that front, either.
It just...sucked. With more suckage to come! Three times a day in mild form and twice a week in more extreme form! Oh yay!
