My knees are hurtin', we're in fer cold weather!

So Japan made me feel like an old man a bit. Not so much in that I'm outgrowing childish things. I still had a blast in Akihabara and bought some new Gundam toys to add to my collection. I was feeling old because my knees were really killing me a lot of the time. When I found a seat on the train, I'd get about halfway down, and then just collapse, falling the rest of the way when the knee pain got too great. I could walk around just fine, but even sitting down with my knees bent at 90 degrees got to be painful. I'd always have to warn whoever I was sitting across from to ignore me playing footsie so I could stretch my legs out a bit. Janie and the Batty's noticed, and their concern prompted me to go see the doctor about it when I got back.

The doc says it looks like Patello-Femoral Syndrome, the generic catch all for situations where your kneecap isn't quite lining up with the slot it's supposed to glide in. So I've got my first physical therapy session tomorrow night to try and get this going in the right direction. Wish me luck!
