ive been abit tardy with my intro having gone quiet after abrief flurry of engagement amonth or so back.
I like the metaphore of this being like sitting down to watch a movie thats been going on for some time. I first sat down last november and saw Lorimer give his three hour evening lecture.
NOCIOCEPTION IS NEITHER SUFFICIENT NOR NESSESARY FOR PAIN.???
My working world tilted sideways- maybe thats why ....and why
somehow despite doing a louie gifford course a few years back and reading butler it hadnt quite hit home. I cant help but feel a little embarrassed that i hadnt been sufficiently interested to realise there was this radical movie going on. Mostly i've been taken up with young family and the masses of challenge and learning there.but also i havent really commited myself to my work because without the pain movie the physio world makes no sense. sick of going on couses which sound good but fail to measure up when real patients are infront of you. I often felt myself to be going though the motions. Working at an uninspiring coalface to bring home the bacon.
Anyway- mostly rehabilitated.
the last month or so i've become acutely aware of how undermining of my practise and general sense of wellbeing financial insecurity is. As a private practitioner with a big family living without much slack in the bank balance those weeks when the list starts thinning out (like now) are not very easy smile making. and when your new understanding leads to less treatment
its not just your managers buttons that get pushed.
This is a great site just wish i had more time to sit down

We're glad to have you, lloyd.
I think you have summarized therapy's challenges quite well.
