I WILL SURVIVE!!!

In the words of Gloria Gaynor..."

I WILLSURVIVE...as long as I know how to live..."

Well, I'm aware of my limitations once more.....and you know it's pretty rough when it happens prior to sipping your first cup of coffee in the morning!
Yesterday was an up and down day....literally. 
I've taught myself to not jump straight out of bed in the mornings....especially if I'd had one of those amazing dreams where everything is 'normal'....according to people without knee issues.  Which is weird, because yesterday wasn't one of those mornings. ...

The Agony & the Ecstasy of owning a Travelling Knee (or two)

I don't like to complain, and I try not to complain.....but moments like these, you need more than just Minties!! 

It's looking like another awesome, sleepless night, as my "Travelling Knee" (my personal nickname for the situation) has decided to go slip sliding away (thanks Paul Simon for such a brilliant song btw!) 
As I said at the start, I don't like to complain......honestly I don't!!! There are days though when I feel that's all I am doing......little wonder my man picks on my sometimes in an attempt to lighten my mood.
Having been diagnosed with PFA...
