struggling with my left knee AGAIN

Saturday, July 13, 2013

turned wrong on gravel and took a spill now that knee is skinned up and I am walking like chester in gunsmoke again. I keep hurting my legs. Whats going on.

Life has been incredibly challenging like on all fronts negativity decided to dump everything at once. Literally all fronts. Though I have held center I would be lying if I said it didn't bother me.

The life that loomed of being sick and sore and physically inable was abhorant to me. I am doing everything possible to keep that from happening. I finally realized how dangerous carrying that extra weight was and is. I can say all I want about excitotoxins and necessity for nutrition but to carry 50lbs of fat around is not healthy is taking its tool on my structure and is going to come off. Negative world or NOT.

I encourage everyone to realize that extra fat is NOT your friend.

    I feel your frustration - seven months of knee issues on my end. RICE - rest, ice, compression and elevation over time.

    First, let it heal. Keep it elevated when you can, and ice it on and off throughout the day for no more than 15 mins at a time. You may want to stay on alleve or ibuprofen for the next few days to help keep the swelling down.

    Then, start moving it with gentle exercise. Your best bet is to go for no impact movement, like a stationary bike or swimming. Take it easy and listen to it.

    If it doesn't seem to get any better after a few days or a week, please see your doctor so you don't do any further damage.

    Hang in there!
