I was running. It doesn’t matter why. Perhaps I was playing with my daughter, or chasing my dog, or chasing a runaway car, or maybe I just wanted some exercise. The reason, at this point, doesn’t matter. I was running.
Your toes are probably the most uncredited support features in your entire body. As you’re standing without even realizing it your toes are making constant little adjustments to keep you balanced so that you don’t fall over.
It’s easy to find a lot of textures of fingers that have been deformed by rheumatoid arthritis. What most people don’t think about is that the toes can be deformed just as badly as the fingers in those pictures that are so easy to find. This does terrible things to a person’s balance when they’re trying to either run walk or stand for an extended period of time.
Again, I was running. I should never do that. I manage to get about three steps before falling with all my weight squarely on both knees. This was enough of a shock to react to tendons from both quadriceps.
At this point I can expect to be in the leg braces with my knees immobile to one degree or another until roughly the middle of March.
It is going to be a long a month.
I know it’s only January, but, given how quickly time seems to pass these days, it won’t be long before the high school kids are getting ready for prom. This will be the first time in quite a while that I don’t have children in that age group. *sigh of relief*
What always confused me when I was in high school is how does a 17-year old kid who’s working part time at a fast food joint afford to rent a tuxedo and one of those pure limos to arrive at the prom in? I ended up attending my prom in an out-of-style hand-me-down suit while driving a 9-year old ex-police car. Of course, my date attended a rival school, so we were really popular that night!
I have spent entirely too much time recently learning to use Blender, a freeware 3D-imaging program. I was first introduced to Blender a couple of years ago and, at the time, I took one look at the user interface and decided it was way too complicated to even try to comprehend.
I got the newest version of Blender recently and discovered that they’ve completely redone the user interface. This, along with images like this, encouraged me to actually attempt to learn how to use it.
Unfortunately, my fascination with this program is causing me to fall behind on other things I should be doing.
I have an ad that has been giving me a lot of arthritic from rooms lately. It started about three days ago and has been getting steadily more and more painful. I actually needed help off the couch yesterday. I am considering installing a block and tackle with a turnbuckle attached to my shoulders so that I can hoist myself out of the chair.
I saw something on the news last night that I simply could not believe.
Five prison inmates in Boise, Idaho have filed a lawsuit against several major breweries seeking ONE BILLION DOLLARS because they believe that if beer bottles and wine bottles had warning labels saying the stuff was addictive they wouldn’t have gotten themselves into the trouble that landed them in prison. They simply “didn’t know” that alcohol was addictive.
Are we supposed to believe that these people have never heard of alcoholism, seen an alcoholic, or stopped to wonder why there is a minimum age limit on drinking?
