SNAP CRACKLE POP

POP (goes the weasel)

that is the sound of my knee

going

SNAP

yup,

i've hurt my knee in a bad, bad way

you see i went to my first ever cardio kick boxing class and what happens??

you guessed it i twisted my knee and down i go

and CRACK!

wtf just happend??

i'm on the floor and i cannot believe this just happend to me ~ like i was just standing 2 seconds ago way up there.....

15 minutes in, how pathetic is that!! good lord. and i want to cry oh how i want to cry but i don't (which may be a first for me) at least i don't until later when i realize that i'm going to be missing work for a few days and may even have to have ~gasp~ surgery!

and the pain, omg the pain

so now i'm on lots of strong pain meds and i've had 95 CC's of blood, yes, actual blood drained from my knee (which was really quite fascinating to watch) and i'm feeling quite high at the moment but i just had to come and share my latest and greatest news (aka bad luck) that seems to be hanging over my head as of late.

i think i need to go take a nap now.......

Oh dear. I am so sorry to hear this, and in a freak accident too. (I once put my back out at the gym doing an exercise I'd done every workout for 10 years and had to be carried out by the fire department...another story for another time...) Anyhow, I hope you don't get addicted to anything other than perhaps TV and that you don't miss too much work. I know the pain must be terrible...

OK - what does pps stand for?

Try some cardio that is a lower impact when you get back on your feet. Now that you have injured that knee it will be difficult to engage in high impact activity. Sorry to hear about your unfortunate luck, it happens to us all once and a while. Take it easy and hopefully you won't need that surgery.
