Back to the orthopaedist. He told me there was a little problem with my back, and that it was having an effect on my leg. But he also said that there was something we could do about it: shots. It wasn’t guaranteed to fix the problem, but it would make the symptoms go away. And maybe or probably or possibly things would get better after that.

I didn’t like the idea. In fact, I got very scared.

And I felt strangely at peace for a little while.
