Proof of Change

Thursday, November 04, 2010

This morning when I woke up, the skin on my left kneecap looked like it had been burned and was really painful--both the skin and inside my knee. I had no idea what could have caused it.

And do you know what my first thought was? "I hope this doesn't interfere with my workouts!" LOL! That's PROOF that I'm changing because the "old me" would have been delighted for an excuse to sit on the couch for a few days.

Anyway, I saw my doctor and he thinks I'm having an allergic reaction, possibly to an insect bite--which seems likely as I am very allergic to insect bites. He gave me an antibiotic shot and some meds. I did sit on the couch all day, but the pain and swelling have come way down and I'm heading to the gym in the morning.
