Thank you for your words. I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a thought out response. I almost posted that as a private journal, but really wanted to hear thoughts, other trains of ideas from people. *hugs*   I think I will take your idea about holding onto a note of good thoughts in my pocket. Reminders of why life is good.  Knowing that there are people out there with good hearts, like you, are one of them.

One love!

Injury Frustrations

About a month ago I popped my kneecap out of my socket while fire hooping (technical term: dislocation of patella).

I fell down, and was sitting in a ring of fire.

 

Okay, weird, time to stand up. Nope, can't stand up. Why can't I stand up? Something is wrong with my leg. What's wrong with it?…
