Not funny. At all. I am in a whole world of hurt, and I don’t know why. I have a bad knee. Normally it doesn’t bother me as long as I am careful of what I do. Something went horribly wrong last night, and I don’t know what. But I was up all night in pain, and I can’t bend the damn thing this morning. That knee is a bastard, the cartilage is gone. I am a candidate for knee replacement, but my ortho won’t do it because of age, I would need another replacement before I reached the end of my life. Apparently there is NOTHING they can do. And what is worse is that I have to go to work today. Staying home is not an option. This is going to be one really rough day. Ibuprofen isn’t touching it, and I refuse to take strong painkillers. That is a good way to get hurt when working with power tools. I don’t think I will make through the whole day, at least Bill is here to help me. I am already sweating and shaking, and I haven’t even started. Hell, I can’t put my damn shoes on.
I think maybe I need a new ortho, or a new knee, or both.
