I think I may be getting old. I hate to admit it, but I may be headed for problems with my creaky knees. Lately my right knee wants to do the "flamingo thing." I notice it first if I overdo, too much fun/walking sets me off and I limp like Chester on Gunsmoke (if you are under 50, call your Mom and ask her who Chester was)! I have to say it really cramps my style, I can imagine the bargains that are at TJ Maxx and it kills me. Missing out on a Kathy VanZealand bag that's 50% off is almost more than I can bear!
It's not like it hurts all the time. My first experience was 2 summers ago, too much climbing in and out of the boat. I didn't notice it until it was too late, the day the kids went back to Texas and suddenly, I was out of commission. Good thing it didn't happen on the first day of vacation or I would have missed out on a lot of fun. I took pain relievers, wore a knee brace and in a few weeks it went away.
Then last winter, out of the blue I woke up with a limp. Now it was my left knee. This time I put the brace on and actually wore it under jeans so I got better pretty quick.
This time I think I know what caused it...
It could have been this...
I'm just gonna try and stay positive though, just keep on going!
