I don't know why this bugs me as much as it does, but it is: yesterday I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees.
In practical terms, this changes a whole lotta nothin'. I'm still going to the gym, there are no exercises that are offlimits for me, I'm still primarily doing water exercise, I still shouldn't really wear dress shoes, and I still need to get smaller. The only real thing that's added is 500mg of Aleve twice a day. Big deal, right?
But it still sucks to be told that "yeah, guess what, you've screwed around so long you messed things up permanently. Congrats, idiot."
Maybe that's it. I feel like an idiot. Once you're past your teen years, you're supposed to grasp the fact that you're not immortal, that things degrade. But I don't think I really had until now.
**sigh** Not so bright.
