Stupid Knee

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

So basically, I have so many knee issues right now that I feel like amputating it and starting over would not be a bad idea. Some of these are kind of pretty.


I know, that would be terrible, despite the coolness of the floral leg, and the snake wrapped arm, but I'm just tired of hurting. I went to PT for the first time yesterday, and evidently his nickname is the "Physical Terrorist". He put me through a range of exercises designed to loosen and strengthen my IT band and the muscles around it. I made it through ok, although he had to stop at one point and tell me to breathe, and I may have called him a couple of names, including "heartless sadist".

So I am doing the exercises at home for a week, and continuing to ice. and no Zumba, and I feel sorry for myself and I've been eating way too much and not tracking and I wish that one of you was here to come over and smack me upside the head and tell me to get on with it, because I cannot seem to do that for myself right now.

    Okay, so, it's depressing. Frustrating. Feels like you'll be in this condition forever, and you'll never have a normal knee.

    Well, you won't have a normal knee, sweetie. It's messed up. But you can work around it.

    Get a knee brace, and wear it. Ice. Compression. Rest. Elevate. Wear the knee brace when you exercise. During Zumba. Everything.

    Or maybe find another exercise that isn't so knee-intensive? (I too love aerobics mixed with dance - but have had 2 knee surgeries on the same stupid knee - and so I know I can't run, jump hard, all that. Slows me down, doesn't stop me.)


    And step away from the cookies cake and cheese!

    Hey you have a huge heaping lot on your plate over there so we won't all jump on you today....we will wait until you become unbearable then we will Nobody said it was easy for a regular person so for one going through some painful injury can't be filled with daffodils & roses either. I pray you get back to yourself cause amputating is not an go & get worked over again & be encouraged that we will smack you later on down the road for your foul

    God bless,

    Stop beating yourself up :) You have to be patient with yourself, look at why you are overeating. You have to address those issues before you stop treating them with food therapy.
    I'm sorry the Physical Terrorist has you in his sights...but if you work hard you won't have to look at him anymore, I hope.
    I hope I don't sound condescending...I know you can do this!!
    So stop stuffing your face emoticon

    Also OMG the sushi in the background of your I'm starving!!
