Tai Chi isn't supposed to hurt

But it does did.

Suppose it's my own fault, really. I did one of the warm-up exercises (Earth Chi energy pumping)differently last week and heard my back crack, a thing it's never done before. Then the pain started. Friday morning, couldn't get up off the bed without help. Any turning movement was agony. So, 3pm this afternoon - off to Gary at the Sports' Injury Clinic.

First he plugged me in to the tingly machine and BOY does that hurt when it first starts. And then he dials it up even higher, the sadist. Ten minutes later, he's back and performing the bone crunching manipulation on the affected part. Then it's back to more tingly torture

I fell in bed when I came back and slept for 3 hours. Felt as if I'd done 10 rounds with Mike Tyson (and come off worst).

And now? Yeah aaargh, OW!

PS Your postcard arrived Saturday bogwitch. When was it taken? 1890s?
