I don't get worried about my health very often. I had issues when I was young, but for the last several decades, I've been very healthy and very active.
This whole knee issue has really put a kybosh on my activity level and the pain - well, I won't go into the details. Let's just say that it's been an interesting couple of months and I do have a much better appreciation of how disabled people feel. I know, having a bum knee doesn't put me anywhere near to being in a wheelchair but not being able to walk properly has sure put a lot of stuff into perspective.
Not only am I worried about my daily activities which include walking that darn Lexi, although she would prefer to go to the dog park! I was getting worried about Fall Market at the end of this month which will entail a lot of walking. While I'm able to finally put weight on my knee, walking for any distance is - well, not fun! Hey - I was even contemplating renting a scooter or a segway which for me, well that's totally unheard of!
Something has to be done!
It's time to take action! I HATE taking pills and supplements are just not part of my vocabulary. However (and this is so NOT me), I've been hearing endorsements for this product EVERYDAY and I thought I would give it a try.
I stopped at the drugstore last night and picked up a bottle of Sierrasil. I know - I never do that. I never get pulled in by an ad. But I did.
I took one pill last night and I slept the ENTIRE night without waking up. That hasn't happened in a long time. I usually wake up because of the pain in that knee. While I still have pain today, I'm not limping and the pain is better. Not perfect by a long shot. And let's not forget, this is NOT the knee that had surgery. That knee is fine!
Now how could this be working in such a short time??? I don't care if the pills aren't actually doing anything, although it's inflammation that is my problem, not so much the joint. If this is all a placebo effect, I don't care!!!! I actually feel a bit more like my old self today and that's all that counts!!!!!
On that note, I'm going for a run at lunch! Just kidding!!! I hate running!
Have a great day!!!
