Ow! My "most of me"!

Posted 7 April 2005

Somehow or another I've managed to damage my legs. Last week my left ankle got damaged, and I developed a severe limp to keep it from hurting. Eventually the limp caused its own problems, with my right leg burning from the exercise of supporting most of my body weight while walking, and my left leg burning from...I don't know. It just burned like crazy.

Well now my right knee is damaged, and I'm once again left wondering why: I can't bend at the knee without pain. For instance, at the dining hall I tried to stand up after having been sitting there for a while. My knee actually popped while attempting to stand up. And trying to pick up something on the ground? Fuhgeddaboudit!

Thus am I a wreck: bad ankle, bad knee, and even as I'm typing this, I've popped both of my wrists. I definitely need exercise, but unfortunately almost none of my body is up to the task. At least I've still got my trusty abs - those guys have never failed me. Why, I can sit for hours---HOURS---and not get tired!

Well, I just got off the phone with my back. It says I have to go.
