House arrest for 3 weeks

The title says it all...I'm grounded for the next 3 weeks as per my doctor's instruction. Thanks to my parents and my bunch of colleagues for scaring me with all the bad consequences that follow from non-compliance. I better sit still and not strain my bad knee further :(

So the story goes... (dun laugh at me!)

On that 'lovely' thursday, I went for my aero dance class after work, I was 5 mins late apparently, skipped warming up and straightaway did all those vigorous movements. I was doing okay for the first half an hour till I heard 'pop' ! I TWISTED MY KNEE when doing that 360 degrees twist :I The worst thing was that I only rested for a few seconds and joined the class again ( I want to slap myself now for doing that). I didn't feel the pain until I reached home, I couldn't even walk properly and felt the inflammation fluid flowing inside my knee. Yiaks, better dun elaborate further...feeling queasy now.

My dad was about to drag me to see the Chinese Urut ('Tit Da') but I refused. Can't bear the pain of having my knee twisted again...

Anyway, I have been a good girl (I think), at least I went to see a doctor, got some pain killer, medicine to reduce swelling and metsal cream.

LESSON LEARNT: Stop all activities and rest when you sprained your joints.

P/s: Floggers feel free to deliver food to me.

Angie Tan said...


been following your blog for a while and i enjoy the food reviews. (^ ^)

anyway, do remember the R.I.C.E rules for your bad knee..

R - Rest
I - Ice to reduce swelling
C - Compression (by wearing tubi-grip)
E - Elevate

You may need some anti-inflammatory medication and these can be prescribed by your doc.

Anyway, been a recent sufferer of sprained knees due to excessive gym activities, I endured pain for over 5 weeks before getting back to normal.

Take care! Hope to hear more food reviews from you. :P
