Had to resort to pain meds

Knee was kicking up a fuss yesterday. I tried to take it easy, not walk too fast, or do too many deep knee bending things, but none of that helped. 

Going to bed last night, it didn’t matter what position I put my leg in, even the tried in true to ‘relieve joint stress’ position, just didn’t help, so I resorted to “Better living through chemistry”. The LOWER dosage variety.

I managed to sleep, but feel a bit fuzzy headed, as is usual with pain medications.  Knee is a bit swollen today, too.  Have compression bandage on it for now, and will switch to the “Device of Torturous Comfort” aka mid-thigh to calf knee brace when there is a reduction in the swelling.
