Bee’s Knees, Continued

bees-knees

 

My left knee is still bothering me, even after doing Physical Therapy since January. <sigh>
It seems to get better, then something happens and it’s back to pain again.  When we were on a trip to New York a month ago, we walked a lot and climbed so many stairs, I had to buy a new brace.
Today is supposed to be my final PT but I don’t think I’m ready.
When this clinical trial came to my email, I just went through the whole survey for this but there was no doctor nearby:
 
Osteoarthritis Research Studies. Knee and hip arthritis studies enrolling now. No-cost medication. http://curec.lk/1VL5hu9
 
We’ll see what the next step is (so to speak!)
Someday…
no-pain

Melanoma Monday

May is designated as National Melanoma Month.   Included in that designation is National Melanoma Monday, which is the first Monday in May.  The American Academy of Dermatology has set aside this day to raise awareness about skin cancer.

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer, and it is the deadliest of skin cancers.

There will be many events focused on skin health, sun safety, tanning prevention, and skin cancer screenings and resources.

All are asked to join the American Academy of Dermatology in wearing orange and encouraging others to wear orange for skin cancer awareness.

HOW TO OBSERVE

The 2016 theme is Looking Good in 2016 so use #LookingGoodin2016 or #MelanomaMonday to post on social media.

HISTORY

Founded by the American Academy of Dermatology, National Melanoma Monday has been raising awareness since at least 1984.  For more information on prevention and screening visit www.melanomamonday.org.
