Just what I knee-d

I don't have a clue what happened from the time I got out of my car Thursday morning until I got back in the car on Thursday afternoon but one thing I do know is that I walked in to work feeling all great and junk and feeling like I could leap tall buildings with a single bound, then by the close of business that day, I could hardly walk. All of a sudden my knee just started hurting. I thought it was something that would go away overnight if I came home and just rested but it didn't go away. I tried to think back if I bumped it or not but this pain is a different type of pain that hurts from within and not from the outside. I'm beginning to think something might be wrong....I don't know.

Hubby suggested I get in the tub and soak in some epsom salt and it took me forever to bend this knee and get in the tub. i actually had to sit on the edge of the tub and slide by big behind in the tub and that was not a pretty site. I asked him if he would help me get out and he said he would and all I kept thinking about is that he might get all excited seeing my sexy goodness in rare form. I had the water as hot as I could stand it and then I just sat in there until the water got cool. I was about to call hubby to help me get out but then our daughter came in and said that he had company and then I thought that would be more awkward for a stranger to see all my sexiness so I managed to get out and I tell you that I felt like shamu splashing water everywhere. I think I was in more pain than when I got in.

Hubby rubbed it down with icy hot and said for me to just rest and that is just what I did. I don't know how I've overworked one and not the other one so at this point, I still don't know the diagnosis of my knee and did I mention now I'm limping. It hurts in and out and then hubby asked me if I need to go to the emergency room and I do know how they take forever and I really need to finish up this homework for Monday and Tuesday class and I can't be missing no class. I know, I know my health is more important. I told him if I didn't feel better by the time I get out of my class on Tuesday, then we will go and check it out. I'm staying off of it today unless I have to get up and go pee and I'll let hubby continue to baby it for now. I'll keep you updated.

  1. QueenBee, we have to set an example for our family that it is important to take care of ourselves. Go see about your knee. And keep us updated.

    ps...I say this as encouragement for myself, I have a tooth-ache that I really need to go to the dentist about, but I am SOOOOOO afraid : ) Will you be my hero??????
