Here We Go Again

July 22nd, 2017 at 12:44 pm

I was watching the grandsons in the park yesterday and decided (foolishly) to shoot some hoops with one of them, when I felt a R-I-P in my knee. Any progress I had made is gone, and more.

I'm going to take the weekend to rest up and baby it before I decide whether I should go to the doctor. I know I didn't really break or tear anything, because I wouldn't be able to walk. But walking is painful, and the stairs more so. Today I plan to stay in all day and not even tackle the stairs, in hopes that will facilitate healing. And maybe tomorrow, as well.

I do have a full hamper of colored clothes, but laundry can wait. It's not like I don't have enough clothes to wear!

A larger urgency is kitty litter and cat food. If I were feeling normal I would get both today. I'm going to try to hold out until Monday.

So, the bright side is, no temptation to spend, and I should have a nice weekend reading and relaxing.

And I need to start thinking about what to do about getting into a first-floor condo or a building with an elevator. I love this condo, but it's clearly a problem every time I injure my legs, which I seem to be doing more and more frequently. Sigh.

    Oh no; I'm so sorry to hear this. Hope the quiet weekend helps.

    I am so sorry!
    One suggestion, when I wreck my knees, I try to wear supportive shoes or sneakers, even indoors, and not my slippers-- that helps me.

  3. CB in the City Says:

    I second that, Carol! I have a pair of Skecher clogs that I wear indoors -- they are very supportive -- and with all other shoes I wear orthotics. I cannot go barefoot or sockfoot or wear flat slide-ins. This is more to benefit my feet than my knees, but I'm sure it makes a difference on knees, too.

    I have a knee sleeve (not really a brace) I wear out every time I am going to do a decent amount of walking or anything else that could potentially cause injury.

    I'm sorry you hurt your knee.
