    Thanks!

    I wonder if there's a version of stick fighting that involves crutches?



    I may have found my calling.

    No thanks, I'll just stick to getting punched in the face by the police.

    I can bend my knee a lot more now. If I completely straighten it, Bad Things Happen. Also have to be really careful about twisting it. I get around okay on crutches but the pain catches up to me fairly quickly. I think it's getting a bit better, but there's clearly something wrong. The 20th seems terribly far away, heh!

    People treat me a lot differently with crutches. It's a clear cue that I have some injury or something, one that they can accept... they're a lot nicer, and a lot more patronizing.

    I think it's the meniscus.

    Stay strong, I just found out today that I may have torn my ACL and/or MCL in my left knee. Also partially torn lower hamstring tendon. Good news? I'm out of the immobilizing brace, and off the crutches, I'm now in a stabilizing brace and can walk for a few min at a time. Mobic and percocet... yay!!

    I am going with yes? Nothing is definite right now.... I have to get an MRI but my stubborn self is still walking (with the help of a hinged knee brace) and going to practice, I dress out and then help the groups that are working techniques. since I cant do them myself but can help explain I just act as a teachers' aid and it helps me remember the techniques for later.

    This sucks though, the worst is when I wake up in the middle of the night and go to move and I bend my knee to much or my dog decides it makes a good pillow...

    I fully intend to wear one of my most overblown gothic ballgowns. I don't think our Shihan would have any qualms about giving me a couple bruises on my upper body though, haha, so I'm gonna keep my mouth shut.
