…. and it’s all “on” my knee! How can that be? I can tell you that it’s painful and tiring and interferes with my daily activities. Ah well, (no pun intended!), I’m not as young as I used to be (said in a creaky voice) and I am rather well covered for a woman my height. I looked up the body mass index calculator – for my weight I should be 6′ 5″ tall – scary!! So all I have to do now is grow …. rather a lot…… UP! not OUT. How to do, how to do? Any suggestions?
Whenever I visit the doctor these days, I am invariably told (in a rather stern voice) “Well of course – excess weight is the main cause/doesn’t help/ is a major contributing factor along with …..” you guessed it “…AGEING”. A pox on skinny people and the young! I was once both, and I am here to tell you, I am much happier old and fat! Just in pain, tired and hampered in my “activities of daily living”! They’ll be putting me in a nursing home next! A pox on those who try!
