Would it be alright if I labelled todays blog “The Day Sam Heughan Killed the Internet?” because honestly, that’s exactly what he’s done. Unashamedly and without a single ounce of permission.
If you’re new here (Hi!) and have no Idea what I’m talking about – then go and look at my twitter feed or go here:
It’s OK. I’ll wait. I’ll give you time to catch your breath.
Not going to lie. This is, hands down, the most incredible photoshoot he’s ever done. The guys that did this for Nobleman Mag did an exquisite job and it left a certain fandom in a puddle on the floor. My only hope is that they don’t run out of copies. I can’t afford one right now and I really want one. (Can you wait at least two weeks? Please?)
Right. Now to other news.
I think I’ve mentioned more than once that I am a human science experiment. And now is a good time to give you all an update on that.
For those playing at home things are actually getting better. Slowly. There was a time where I seriously began to wonder if everything, I was doing was actually going to get me anywhere. For the longest time It always felt for every step forward – there were 19 steps backwards.
That was until towards the end of last year. At the time I was seeing an Osteopath, a neurologist, a physiotherapist and a dental surgeon. There was a lot going on. I was (and still am) working 3 days a week (part time) and not being able to make as much money as I used to – it was straining the hip pocket, so something had to be done.
At the time, my Aunt was visiting from Perth, Western Australia. She was staying with my Father for a period of 7 weeks – while they went on an over seas trip together.
Upon their return, my Aunts sciatica was playing up and, after some searching- found a chiropractor just down the road from my Father’s house – so, she went to try them out. After two sessions her sciatica was all but gone.
Suffice to say, I was convinced enough. After all, I had thrown everything else at Me and it wasn’t really getting anywhere.
My first session left me able to move in ways I hadn’t been able to since March 2016.
(Interesting observation: They also claimed my jaw pulled to the right. Much like my Osteopath said it did. Most people comment and say the right-hand side of my face appears slightly droopy and my jaw pulls that way. The only person who says it doesn’t – is my Dental Surgeon. Go figure)
So, as a result I’ve been able to drop the Osteopath and the Neurologist. I’ve stopped taking meds (I was on Lyrica 150mg x 2 a day) and apart from a fluid retention tablet (for other reasons) I’m off all other medications moving forward.
I’ve been seeing these guys for a few months now and things are genuinely improving. (if you live local you can check them out here http://www.knoxchiropractic.com.au/ ) They’ve worked wonders for me I can’t speak highly enough of them.
As well as this, I have a new Physiotherapist. She’s really nice. A former Olympic Swimmer. She’s taken over from my previous PT who left Active EP just before Christmas last year. Her focus with me is core and strength. This is going really well. (Between this and MPC – I’m gaining more of my mobility and strength back every single day. I’ve written blogs about MPC before. Just scroll through my entries and see for yourself)
So yes, things are finally getting somewhere. I still have to find a way to shift my jaw back into its correct positioning – but something is bound to happen soon.
Thanks for reading,
