Frozen In Time by cazcastalla
Frozen In Time
This is my entry for the 'Time Challenge' at :iconstewed-tomatoes: at beginner level.

I have not done much manipulation in the last couple of years, and have discovered that it is NOT like riding a bike - you do forget! I find I have little skill, little inspiration and start and abandon many, many manips. So I was determined to get this one done and uploaded.... I have requested critiques, and would be delighted to receive some constructive criticism/advice... thanks xxx

Just a Little Fracture...

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 27, 2013, 8:19 AM
I know some of my watchers have known about the problems I have had with my wrist/hand since I had a fall 3 months ago... I finally got my entitlement to free healthcare here in Spain, and was referred to the hospital today.

It transpires that I fractured my hand, which has now healed and I now need physiotherapy to get movement back in my wrist - I am assured I will never get it back to full mobility, but to be honest, just getting rid of the pain would help!!!

The consultant was stunned that I have suffered through this with no consultation, treatment or medication - he now thinks I am some kind of super-woman hahaha!

So, that's where we're at right now... Monday morning I have to return to the consultant to be referred for physiotherapy, and I think it will be a long haul from there!!
