Rant ahead! This is just me bitching about being in pain again, feel free to skip.

You guys, this damn knee will not stop hurting and swelling. It was fine for like three days, and then all I did at work today was be on my feet for two hours and OW OW OW. I keep thinking carrying around extra weight is making it worse, so thought maybe I’ll go to the gym and do the most low-impact thing I can think of, just to keep being even slightly active since maybe inactivity and sitting around makes things worse. OWWWWWW. WHAT EVEN IS THIS. I don’t play sports! How could I have gotten bursitis or a stretched ligament or messed up IT band or whatever the hell it is? GRRRRR.
