I'm Going Crazy!!!

So, my trick knee is really messed up and giving me fits this week and I have not been able to get up and do much of anything. I'm one of those guys who does not do well sitting around doing nothing. I'm pulling my hair out. I'm tired of sitting here and I know all too well that I am becoming quite grouchy. I know some folks who sit and watch TV or play on the computer all day every day and they are fine with that, but I could never do it. I've been a day and a half and I'm absolutely going nuts. They haven't really said much, but I think that Libby and the kids have decided to keep their distance from me. I've had the living room all to myself for the past couple of hours. I'm trying, but I know that I have so much to do and I just can't get up and get anything done.
A few minutes ago I had Ashley go get my crutches for me. I have not used them in quite awhile, and when she brought them to me, they have been adjusted to her height and one of the rubber tips on the end is missing. I bit my tongue, but let's just say I am not a happy camper.

One of my friends sent me a note a little while ago telling me that I'm (and I quote) "a drama queen." He said that my knee could not be that bad and that I needed to get off my butt and get to work. He was half teasing... but he was also half serious. So, I decided to post a picture of my legs to let you see just how swollen this knee is. And the truth is, it is worse than the picture looks, because I could not get a good picture of it, not to mention that you cannot see how much fluid is built up on the back side of the knee. (I know... I have beautiful legs, don't I?)

You need to get yourself to a hospital...that's what you need to do.
