Physical Pain With Schizophrenia

1605D-Ken1

Twisted my knee the other day.  It hurt bad enough I couldn’t even walk on it.  Had to take an ambulance to the emergency room because I couldn’t drive myself because of the pain.  I got my knee x-rayed and there was no breaks in the knee or bones.  There was a lot of swelling.  So I got my knee wrapped and some pain pills.  I received a prescription for a walker.  So I’m renting a walker for now until my knee clears up.  I’m also taking over the counter pain pills every few hours.  I hope this clears up soon.

Mentally I have managed to stay in high spirits.  I am still doing well mentally in spite the pain.  I won’t be able to go home for Christmas because of my limited mobility.  So I’m spending Christmas at my apartment by myself.  My parents have talked about coming to my place in a day or two so we could have a mini celebration.  But I’m glad to be back home and on the mend.

I write about my experiences with mental illness and life in general. I am also currently under going 'lifestyle changes' (I hate the term 'dieting' as it's sounds so temporary) and have lost 70 pounds since spring 2014. I've put my poetry and novel writing on lower priority since I started losing weight and blogging more seriously.
