I'm still doing more every day.
Getting in the house walking in is much better than crawling in like I did for a year.
I'm going to keep at it.

Had a Dr appointment today.
Walked in and all around the office building today.
On my own.
Got home sawed the rest of the day.
My legs a pooped out tonight.
But it felt good.
The Doc didn't know what to think.

You can feel proud of yourself for realizing that you need to move forward and not wait for the doctors.

 I have been super busy all summer and moving better.
But with the up and down in temperature it has put me in a down mode.
Hard to sleep at night and all my joints are hurting bad.
The good thing is staying busy keeps my mind off it.
Till it's time to get in the house.

My friend has tried the gelitan (sp) boxes of this stuff mixed with water and before it tries to setup at all drinks it all down very quickly.

 He got a hyperextended knee roughly in 08 and was “repaired” by the VA. That’s not at all perfect but does give him SOME relief. BUT, after going through all of this his knee has slowly been getting worse and worse, he’s been really tempted to get it redone by someone else and the VA will pay for half. That’s what he tells me. 

May or may not work. Just hoping for you!
Trying harder everyday.

Before we visited you, PatD & I visited with FF member @loggah.  During a conversation he mentioned that he could not make it without Glucosamine Chondroitin.  Since Pat has always had knee/leg pain her ears perked up and she gave it a try and there is no way to describe the relief that she has gotten from it.  They are like taking "horse pills" but well worth it.

It may not give you any relief, but it's worth the try.

Old Greenhorn, it's been available for years in the supplements isle. Works for some, and others not. Can't hurt to try. :)

I have tried and take most everything I can.
Fish oil works the best.
I haven't tried cbd oil yet only because I don't know a good kind to get.
