Hahahahah no no, I'm no cripple! I've had knee problems for about six years... back when I was really athletic and playing on the varsity soccer team and being the varsity captain of the swimming team, I tore tissues in my knees unknowningly when I blew them out one year. I landed on crutches for about 4 months. Since then I've always had pain in my knees and when I drove across the country, one of my knees blew out, so I went to the doctor and they did some tests and now I do physical therapy three times a week in order to rebuild the tissue strength. I'm not bed ridden like I can't walk at all, just bed ridden like I ache too much to move. I can walk around just fine it just hurts.
Jesus, that sounds aweful!

"First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me— and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Martin Niemöller
