My knee

I have been told I don't look 65. I try to keep myself up and look nice and not frumpy. But no one told my knee that it isn't supposed to be 65. I had surgery on my right knee a few years ago. I had my meniscus trimmed where it was torn. The surgery was day surgery but the whole thing was a total bummer and I hated every minute of it. So I wasn't a happy camper when I began to realize that the left knee is bad now. I'm sure it's the meniscus but I will have to see the Dr. and have an MRI and find out the extent of the problem. I'm sure to be off my feet for a few days and with a puppy that will be a pain in, well, a pain in the knee. Right now I can't kneel on my left knee even in the soft bed so I'm sure I need help.

I am also glad to see Spring. I found it hard to get through this winter. I was really affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder. The dark, cold days were very depressing to me. So I am glad to see Spring. Maybe I can sit in the sun and recuperate from the surgery.


  1. This winter depressed me as well. I felt so isolated. We had so much ice here that I was afraid to get out and go anywhere. Just going to work was torture. Today it's warm and sunny, and I am starting to feel alive.

  2. I had a meniscus op. on my right knee last October, and I am still in pain and going to phisiotherapy once a week. I thought I was the only one.
    I wont allow it to depress me thou.
    Thank you so much my dear Judy for your kind comment.
    Do keep in touch.
    I am following you, now.

  3. The winter used to depress me until I got on Meds for general depression, and now SAD doens't affect me any more. I am glad spring is here too, and Im glad you are starting to feel better.

    Also, thanks for all the lovely comments on my blog.!!

  4. Oh dear that sounds painful, I hate hospitals and am in and out of them all the time. I like winter for the first day it snows then the novelty toally wears off! Spring is well and truley welcome!
