I have this nagging pain on my right knee for almost two weeks now. It is not really that painful but I could not sleep at night trying to try a sleeping position that would keep me relaxed. The pain is more visible at night. I tried some liniments to no avail.  It keeps coming back.

Early this morning I went back to my doctor for that much-needed check up.  He prescribed Tramadol for a week once or twice a day or as needed. I took one when I reached home and I am feeling okay now. Hopefully, the pain goes away soon. I have to come back after a week though for uric acid test and for FBS (fasting blood sugar).  Sometimes I just hate going to the doctor. I hate the endless waiting.  You’ll wait for two hours  only to be seen by the doctor for less than fifteen minutes. I get bored waiting. Although there is a television in the waiting area, I don’t usually watch it.

Instead of using a headset when I am viewing a video, Josef lent me his BOSE sound link and connected it to the computer. This afternoon, I tried it listening to some 70’s and 80’s songs then surprise…I watched a movie called Irresistible, starring Susan Sarandon.  Was she going crazy suspecting her husband’s newest co-worker that the latter is trying to attract the former? When things started to disappear in their house, the more she believed that the stalker was her husband’s co-worker. She struggles to prove her sanity and trust on her intuition. It is a psychological thriller alright with an unexpected conclusion. I didn’t expect to enjoy it but I did.  And listening to a well-delivered and clear dialogue added to the attraction. Using the sound link is way, way better than relying on the computer’s speaker.

Time flies, don’t you think? April is coming to a close and May is just around the corner.
