I slept from about 3:00 pm yesterday until 8:45 am today. as far as I know. I know I got up and fed the dogs and let them out but couldn't stay awake. I barely could stay awake even this morning. I had to cancel going to T and group cuz something happened to my bad knee (the real one not the bionic one). I woke up in severe pain tuesday night which makes no sense cuz I taught agility tues from 3-9 and it felt great. it was the first day since I fell and since the scope that it felt really pain-free. Could barely walk yesterday...it's a very sharp stabbing pain but had to go to the dentist. Called my ortho and got in today but had to cancel t and group which i hate. Today it was worse. I had to crawl back up the stairs after feeding the cat (she has to eat in the basement due to the dog pack here!) putting any weight on it is excruciating.
so could that be making me so tired? I mean maybe it is triggering? or could the numbing shots at the dentist (they are re-doing a crown) have some wierd affect on me? or maybe the dentist is triggering?
it was so hard to go to the ortho dr...just so hard to DO it and usually once I get going I'm fine but i'm not.
I got a steroid shot but really what I need is a knee replacement. we can do a partial as i did with the right one but actually it's not all that different, healing wise. they still saw your bones but some muscles and ligaments can stay attached. if i even have any. do not have posterior or anterior cruciates-they tore so long ago they shriveled away.
I hope the shot works. but this horrible filled with cement feeling is still with me. she called in some pain meds but I'm too tired to go get them.
and there is someone working on the trim on my house so I dunno....can't sleep. don't know what to do. feel SU which is stupid but I do or someone does.
