I went to the physiotherapist yesterday which went well. I felt relieved after as I could put the problem into context and had a strategy to deal with it.

This from the site "Strangely enough, everyone who has read it thus far, has described it the same way: it’s a bit like taking acid soaked mushroom from the head of a unicorn slaughtered by Charles Manson on a rocket ship barrelling through a galaxy of rainbows, distilled into a q&a and posted on an alternative comics blog. You know, on acid." Once again posting from school, having serious net withdrawals every time I'm at home like some one who's amputated limb keeps on itchin’
