I strongly suspect I have autoimmune issues of some kind and am currently jumping through hoops to try to get them diagnosed.

My mother has reached a point where she needs frequent doctor visits, sometimes on short notice, and I am not always able to drive her and be there with her.

I overdid it on squats at one of those yell-y bootcamp-y gym classes and my right knee now has patellofemoral syndrome (pain around the kneecap). This was ~2 months ago. My knee still hurts when I hike or run up stairs. I am bummed. I'm going back to physical therapy next week, but in the meantime, it would be great to hear from people who DID recover from a knee injury. Is your knee as good as new? Did you discipline yourself to do your physical therapy exercises? Tell me your story of hope! [more inside]

I also feel like I need computer glasses but the last time I went to the optometrist, she convinced me that I didn't. So there I am, daily, leaning forward over my keyboard to read things. Tell me how to try on, find, buy and use reading glasses and/or computer glasses. [more inside]
