So that straight line on the picture is a needle going into my spine. It hurt, it hurt a lot… If I’m reading the report correctly, the needle was 8.8cm long.

The most fun part was when the Doctor said, “I’ve got the needle in the right spot, but I just want to test something.” and then he pushed the needle in further and my entire leg went into a nerve spasm and felt like it was on fire. The Doctor then said, “Did you feel anything then?” and I cried replied, “Yes.”

They just discharged from the hospital, they’re too busy to do the CT scan spinal injection today, I guess this is for the cortisone. On the plus side, they’ve booked me in for one tomorrow away from the hospital at a private, bulk billed, practice.

It was depressing as F**K staying in the neurology ward last night, all the other patients in my room were stroke patients and they were all pretty messed up. Too sad.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts, and your shit stirs! I’m a bit pissed that no one brought me any whisky, though!
