I am so upset. Not only did I want to be able to sleep through tonight (I went to bed early, I had a really long day), but I woke up to the most excruciating pain I’ve felt in a while: my knee dislocating.
It’s not the first time it’s happened (It’s popped out, and pops itself back in, on 4 other occasions) but it’s the first time in quite some time. I knew it was feeling loose because I was on my knees today testing out paint in the new house and cleaning/scrubbing to make it clean for move in. But despite warning signs, I went to sleep without one of my braces on (I have a medium coverage brace, and a heavy duty brace) and went to turn around in my sleep and it popped completely out.
My entire leg from the knee down is hurting bad right now and I can feel my knee cap really loose, and i’m worried it’s going to happen again so I have it stacked up on some blankets, trying to avoid A) making it too stiff, B) moving too quickly and having it pop out again.
Sigh. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, though.
Now here I am .. awake at late hours .. again. I’m sad.
