I just screamed at the cat, poor thing. She had stepped on my leg.
I strained the medial collateral ligament in my left leg in December. It did not heal, so in February I started physical therapy. I got better.
I fell down at a track meet in March, straining my left hamstring and left lateral collateral ligament. Physical therapy continued, and I got better.
Earlier this week, I slid on a plastic coat hanger I failed to see I had dropped, crashing to my knees. My left knee seemed swollen and sore, but not too bad until last night and today, when I was almost in tears.
I went to the doctor this afternoon. I have restrained all three.
He told me to stay off of my feet for several weeks until it healed. When I told him flatly that that wasn’t going to happen, we agreed on crutches, which I hunt down tomorrow.
