Physio Melting or Mellowing - - -

Just completed 7th visit with my physio. He presented as quite cool and rather clinically detached the first 4 visits - but I liked him for his skill and knowledge. (Usually, I drift toward warm people.)

Each week he became more personable, maybe more comfortable with me - and I warmed to him.

He knows my man has AD as our first visit was a bit of a turmoil for my Man. Anyway, each subsequent visit, the physio asked me about "me" - how was I coping, what is happening, you have to care for yourself, make time for your exercises, no excuses.

Today, he went over the same basic conversation and I looked up at him and said, "Are you OK?" There was a sadness in his eyes today.

No, isn't. Turmoil in his life, also, of a different nature but still, it's there. I tried to comfort him.

We never know the burden another is carrying.

How true. Your sufferings have made you more sensitive to others. And that is a gift.

It's both a blessing and a curse, to be able to notice and "feel" things, isn't it? At times, I even do it, with the written word.

Somehow, I can even pick up a mood change, from just typed words on a computer screen. At times...

I'm so glad you did notice and ask him how he was. I'm sure it was a bright spot in his day.
