I Hate My Knees

There's just no rhyme or reason to the pain they're making me feel right now. I feel so exhausted from simply walking around the house and performing simple household tasks that I don't know what to do. I know that if I just sit here, resting my knees, it'll hurt more when I finally do get up. On the other hand, the exhaustion makes it difficult to really want to do much of anything at all.

On top of all that, I feel like I'm making poor decisions lately, despite trying to think things over even more. I don't really get it at all, but I can hopefully figure it out. Blah.

Busy Month

I apologize for not writing for a while here. We've had a lot going on with my sister lately.

Yesterday we went to her EEG. I had to keep her up all night before, which lasted until about 4:30 when I fell asleep, but thankfully she was able to stay up on her own (or because of my snoring). I think I slept more there than she did. It'll be good to see the results soon, just like with the MRI she had today. Hopefully everything is okay or they can at least let us know what's going on with her poor body.

As far as I'm concerned, I've been feeling more and more exhausted. I have a feeling this has to do with keeping my sister up the other night, after working 14.5 hours the day before. I tripped Friday night on my way to a concert and my ankle and knee have both been feeling the pain. It's a pity, since my knee was doing pretty well compared to normal. Hopefully they'll feel a little better tomorrow since I've been resting them.

I have had some random pains in my abdomen lately, kind of in the kidney area, as well as the fun tri-weekly-or-so experience of my top wisdom teeth wanting to come in and then changing their minds. That's definitely making life fun. Ah well, c'est la vie, right?

For Reals, Knee, I Get It

You suck.

I haven't really taken medicine for a few days because I hate taking it everyday for what could be the rest of my life. I don't like thinking about that prospect. Today, instead of just hurting when being moved, my knee hurts all the time. The pain is much less than it was before, but a little more constant than I'd like, obviously. There is also a little more pain in the calf muscles on the same leg, so I'm sure that isn't helping.

I think I might need to give in and take meds.

Crap.

Vitiligo

That's the verdict. My sister has the same terrible skin condition that Michael Jackson had. What an odd thing to find out the day of the man's funeral. Go figure.

Ugh

My sister's appointment with the dermatologist is this afternoon. She's terrified, and so is everyone else. If she doesn't have this tuberous sclerosis, things could be much worse.

My left knee has been bugging me for about a weekish now. Unfortunately, there's not much that I can do to make it better. Even taking pain pills, which we all know I hate doing, doesn't really help that much. I had the great idea the other night to get ahold of some needles. Maybe if I grind up the meds and do whatever junkies do to make powders liquids, I can just inject my knee with meds and see if that helps. Of course, I lack just about anything I'd need for that, but that's alright, because I'm sure it'd be bad.
