I mentioned before that I’m 61 years old.
Unfortunately, my knees are about 161 years old.
I will need knee replacement surgery, on both knees, someday.
My knees ache when the seasons change, and this week I’ve been exercising less because my knees hurt so badly.
But as a person who has become a “glass is half full gal,” I want to tell you right now that there is an upside to the discomfort I’m feeling this week.
In the past, I’ve had to take off work, be on prescription medication for a few weeks, and be generally impossible to live with until the pain lets up.
This year, thanks to losing weight and exercising regularly, I’m using Ibuprofen (not every night) and my heating pain to control the discomfort.
I’ve not lost any time from work due to my arthritic knees.
