The Great Betrayal. My Right Knee (formerly known as My Good Knee)

My knee blew out and I was stranded in the cinema screaming “Help! Help Me!” for 40 minutes.

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: France, July 2015, Heat, Pain, Endurance and how I got through it!

26th August 2015 | 0 Comments

Time to get real with you. The Chateau de Blandy Les Tour was wonderful. The Opera “Don’t Worry, Be HaRpy” was gorgeous and a great collaboration. I don’t want to sound like a whiner but my last trip to France was tough! Heat, exhaustion, knee pain and obesity made it a real test of endurance [...]

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Showing Up Is Half The Battle

25th June 2015 | 1 Comment

I didn’t think about it. I knew I had to go. Even as the pain in my back and knee hampered my every move in bed, I got up slowly, cautiously. I thought to myself: “How the Hell am I going to the gym? I can’t even go to the toilet!” In the old days, [...]

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Eating and Moving and the Fear of Knee Pain.

27th April 2015 | 0 Comments

I am committed to making this work. But I am afraid that my knee pain will kick in and make this activity a living Hell. My new relationship with fitness is a month old. If this was a love affair I would be cautious. I wouldn’t call it a “real relationship” yet. I would wait [...]

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl 2013

22nd March 2013 | 0 Comments

My eating, the Mirror, the scale, video of me performing (Egads!) There is no denying it. I have become a fat bitch again. Don’t despair folks. We obese people can say these things about ourselves. And no matter how many of my dear ones smack my hand or pound the table as they offer their [...]

The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Back at it.

4th February 2011 | 2 Comments

Missing In Action. That’s what they’ll say about me at the gym. I have fallen off the wagon. Oops! I wish I could blame it on “The Knee Chronicles” but I hopped off the ole’ girl awhile before that. However, I am not discouraged. I figure as long as I am still living, I can [...]

The Knee Chronicles: Wait & See & T.C.O.B.

31st January 2011 | 3 Comments

I had an “Arthritis Flare.” It was my very first and it was awful, horrible, debilitating and sudden, like BAM! I have been dealing with knee pain for awhile now but nothing like this. This experience taught me a lot. Shit happens to the body and I can neither control it, nor will it away. [...]

The Knee Chronicles: Three Days.

I’ve had three days with no knee pain. It’s a miracle. I can’t believe it. I keep waiting for a twinge … I will keep you posted. But I am looking forward to writing about something else besides the pain in my left knee. I have a gig tonight and methinks I won’t have to [...]

The Knee Chronicles: A Shot In The Knee

28th January 2011 | 6 Comments

It’s two hours past my scheduled appointment time and I am finally sitting in the examination room. I’ve actually been in here for about 20 minutes. Not much to look at but at least it doesn’t smell funny. You know what I mean! That doctor’s office smell. As a child, I was always traumatized by [...]

The Knee Chronicles: Thoughts In the Waiting Room

25th January 2011 | 4 Comments

It’s morning and I am sitting in the doctor’s waiting room. The doctor’s office is located in an area hospital. It’s not posh or fancy in any way. This comforts me for some reason. There are people of color here, working people – quite unlike the last time I was in an Ortho clinic (four [...]
