Glad you decided to have it checked. Hope you find out what is going on with it and get some relief. Good luck & keep us posted!
Never regret something that made you smile!
You go girl. I had a knee injury last winter and didn't get it looked at in time. Then I reinjured it several times, just walking, it would flip backwards, like my knee was pointing behind me. I went to emerg. One doc said (like he always does, take ibuprophen and keep it elavated, and iced). I don't do ice well at all due to arthritis. Another doc said ÿou're going to need a $800 knee brace, I ran out of there knee pointing backwards and all. Finally, I saw my GP who said "ÿou have absolutely no pain tolerance whatsoever, sometimes a sprained knee is just a sprained knee," and he lectured me for about forty minutes for seeing the other docs because he is the one doc who treats Fibro, and somehow it's hush hush in the doctor world to do so. He's generally very good so I just let him vent, cried a little and left with the prescription I'd come for.
You get satisfaction or ask for a second opinion. if they indicate you're overreacting, ask for a second opinion. And if they bully you, you tell us, we're on your side.
I still have problems with that knee wanting to go the wrong way, but only occasionally.
Well, I start PT today, in about 3 hours from now... Right now I am waiting to go to lunch! haha
Well, Im glad I reminded you of that Karen, its a REALLY special thing. He called me mama and I was shocked, but at the same time I LOVED it! haha I want kids of my own, I LOVE little kids and especially babies. He ended up spending 3 days and 2 nights with me. I took care of him 24-7 and we played and watched a bunch of educational stuff. He is SOOOooo SMART! He can already count ot 11! He just turned 2 in Sept! Im so proud of him just like a mommy!
To be honest, his "real" mommy isnt the mother-of-the-year. Thats bad because she is my friend and we grew up together. But, she is irresponsible. Sorry. But, thats the truth. She has had TONS of jobs and for some reason NONE of them EVER work out. If he was my baby, I would be working my butt off at more than one job to be able to provide for him, pay for bills, and take care of things...but shes the opposite. It really upsets me.. Im really responsible and (may I say) grown-up. When he is with me, he is my #1 priority. He does stuff sometimes and she seems so angry with him... I just have the understanding that he's a kid and things happens, not to be angry with him. So, it REALLY bothers me alot. Thats why I prefer taking care of him myself, regardless if he's my responsibility or not. I care really good care of him. I feel like she maybe pushes him aside and maybe puts on a movie or something... I dont know..
So, everyone always asks, "why do you keep him so much?" #1. I love him. #2 I love being with him and taking good care of him. #3 We have SO much fun together! #4 I dont mind keeping him because he is no trouble. #5 Because I actually prefer him being with me... Thats such a horrible thing ot say about my friend...but its the truth and everyone around knows it. There were 2 nights I kept him and told her he was staying with me because I knew she went to a club with friends and she gets drunk so(btw she just turned 22)... In my book, thats not very responsible when you have a child to care for.....
So, anyways, thats the story!! haha Point: I just love him in general and I would do anything to make sure he is okay and taken good care of! He is SOOooo sweet, and handesome, and smart, and well mannered! So... Im his 2nd mommy now! He calls MY mom Nana!!! hahahahaha He's SO smart it blows my mind. He is so much smarter than I was, my brothers or sisters, my neice, any kid I have met at that age. Im so proud of him!
Its funny because all of my friends think its so sweet and they "awww" when I talk about him because of the WAY I talk about him...like he's my own. And, honestly, I think of him that way. So... yea
Sorry about that! Im so bored...Im in the library at school waiting for school to be over so I can go to PT. Yippy. Not looking forward to it really....Im not sure... hmm...guess it doesnt matter since I have to go regardless... Anyways...thanks so much!
