Another Day, Another Torture Session

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I went back to the physio today, after a week of doing the exercises that he gave me at our last meeting. I kind of lost it last night, on Skype with my friend. I was icing my knee after doing the exercises and I moved the wrong way and there was a stabbing pain in my knee and I just started crying.

My knee has hurt for months. All. The. Time. It hurts when I walk, it hurts when I sleep, it hurts when I sit. I am so tired of it. I'm doing the exercises, I am icing, I am being good, but it still hurts. It hurts differently now, but not any less. I'm cranky and in a bad mood all of the time, and I can tell that it is coming out in how I teach and how I deal with my colleagues. It's not good.

The physio says I have improved, that my range of motion is better, and that that muscle is stronger, but I can't really take much joy in that when everything still hurts.

    I know it sucks - but it will improve. It just is slow. You'll get there, you really will!

    Oh no, I'm so sorry you're in so much pain. I hope the improvement is steady and you're back to your normal self soon.

    That does not sound good. Constant pain makes me think there is something very wrong, and you need to see another Dr (I'd recommend an orthopedic Dr) for a 2nd opinion.

    oh no. What happened with your knee?
    Also keep up with the pysio, i am sorry you have to go through the pain but if it will get you better, stick with it. It will all be worth it in the end.

    lots of love
