SoCalPam's Journal, 16 September 2018

I have slipped into the very bad habit of ice cream at night in front of the TV. Partly it's because we've had it in the house; I bought it for my Dad's birthday. I ate the last of it last night and will not be buying any more. I have difficulty controlling portions; sometimes I don't even put it in a bowl. I share this with you because it's part of my "dealing with it" process I'm going through with food. There are certain foods that trigger me in ways I find hard to deal with, and sometimes... I just don't want to try.

On the other hand... I was in a good place with my knees yesterday and did a lot of walking, including up and down my cousin's super steep driveway. I burned a couple of calories :)

And... I just got the diagnosis back from the MRI on my knee: it boils down to a meniscul tear and severe arthritis. There's cartilege loss, a bone spur, and something else I can't remember. I've been referred to ortho, so we shall what the next step might be. If surgery is involved, I'm waiting until after Christmas. Last year the holiday was horrific because I was in so much pain. I'm MUCH better right now, so I'll soldier through and figure it out later.
