Yeah, the first doc I went to in HS, when I hurt it in basketball, said it was ligament. They pulled tons of liquid off it. That's about all he did. What a quack. When I rehurt it in college I went to another doc who was like "Oh yeah, meniscus cartilage." At that point it was all folded up. Couldn't put weight on it. I was great on crutches though. Over thanksgiving break he did arthroscopic surgery and removed it.

So I guess now the scar tissue that replaced it isn't holding up. I know part of it is weight and part of it is old age and the inevitable. I'm in denial about both, but not enough I won't try to fix the parts I can by myself. For now.

It is the suck. But I won't be 'that' old lady. I just won't.

Thanks, sexobon!

I thought 'crepitus' was a funny joke, meaning it creeps up on my old ass.

I'll look into those things in the articles you posted.

It might irritate me if I gave a shit....... WordsWithFriends on Facebook updated and suddenly my games history shows all these people I allegedly lost to and a button to start a rematch. I only ever play one person. WTF? Must be some marketing ploy. I'm not even sure I have facebook friend with those names, but they're pretty common names so I may do... spamholes

I abandoned WWF when it kept trying to up-sell in-game purchases after every turn.

Likewise!

I also had to consider the possibility that it might have been the World Wrestling Federation (as was).

This isn't going well. My knee is giving out more and more. I thought it was doing better and I was walking around a lot to keep it going and then POOF, out again. Then today at the library, and the grocery, I almost went down. So I'm limping like an idiot which strains my other leg. Wish I still had my crutches. I guess I'll have to go to the doc.

Bummer ... take it easy, wth are you out doing all day? Go get a BIG BAG of Cheetos and a 12 pack. Park your ass on the sofa and watch 80's reruns all day.

As great as that sounds, I don't think it will be helpful. I'm job hunting, and all. And it looks like I'll either end up in a factory or as an administrative assistant or customer service and I FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR prefer the factory.

My applications to be mayor or fire chief or runner of the sewage plant or court girl or assistant director of the cultural event place have all been ignored...so...

If you need crutches, go to a Salvation Army. They always have some there for cheap.

I hear ya, IM. I'm looking again also. After 3 decades of constant employment, the last couple years has been really tough. My current position is awful. I work for idiots. Its do frustrating.

Year one I caught two mice over the winter

Year two, there were three

This October: three mice so far! Is it because half the brush they used to live in has been cleared out by the uphill neighbor? Am I facing an onslaught? How shall I prepare?

Maybe you are catching more because you're getting better at it.
