|I'm back in my studio again|
|Re-learing how to throw pots...these are waiting for handles|
I had physical therapy for my frozen shoulder for the last 8 weeks, twice a week, and it's made all the difference. Finally Medicare (without the extra private company insurance "Advantage Plan") was affordable. Affordable is a relative term of course. But my budget got shifted again and my priority was to feel able again.
Now I'm only having PT once a week, and have made really fast improvements, so says the therapist. I think I've been pretty diligent about my home exercises, not to mention having potters muscles in this old bod. I'm very grateful for my progress and am still trying to go very slowly back into throwing. There was a time I thought I'd thrown for the last time on a wheel.
The motivation is still slow coming also. "Patience with all of me" is my mantra today.
