Native Son replied to Jeff Meehan's discussion Knee Problems in the group Exercise
"LIttle late to this particular party. I recently had a knee that was giving me fits.  It felt very odd when climbing stairs, almost like it was going to dislocate backwards and cause a fall.  I finally went to my doctor, and he found no…"

Charles Neill replied to Jeff Meehan's discussion Knee Problems in the group Exercise
"I have a similar knee problem due to an old injury. Squats pop it out of place, but a LOT of midweight quad leg lifts on the bench - NOT deadlifts or leg presses - tighten things up well enough for a while."

Her name was Jada

I was always afraid of dogs when I was younger. I wanted nothing to do with them. They were big smelly dirty and they made messes everywhere. The barking was loud and they had such big teeth. I remember a friend of mine named Ben, He and his sister Amelia had a large Labrador named Rosie. All she did was bark and vomit what she had eaten out of the garbage. She was often sick or hurt and so she often had one of those cones on her head. My Godparents had dogs. When I was very small they had a…See More

"Ive got that wallpaper of TR shooting Bigfoot too. Except for the fact that bigfoot doesnt exsist, that machine gun didnt exsist in 1900s, the symbol on his belt isnt right and TR didnt smoke it's perfectly accurate"

Knee Problems

Every once in a while I may be sitting in a chair or kneeling on the floor and all of the sudden one of my knees will seem to "pop" out of its scocket almost like it dislocated. It stings for a while and the muscles and tendons are sore for about a day or so. Or I pedal a bike for a straight minute and my legs feel like they are about to fall apart. This bothers me a lot because I'm 24. I talked to my doctor and he says that the muscles and everything are probably just weak. So I am asking if…See More

A Bit of Advice

I went to a community college because I didn't have the money or the grades for someplace big.  Unfortunately I was a shit student and my finincal aid was at the bottom of the to do list i never looked at.  So long story short I went back and forth for several years, never finding a real job or making any real progress in school. Last year i decide to fulfil my lifelong ambition to join the US Army.  But i got an extermely bad case of bronchitus and once they found out i lied to get in i was sent packing. I had been through so much i didnt care.

 

Look whatever you do in the short term make sure you take it seriously and jump in with both feet.  Dont dick around for years.  If you've got an urge like to paint or whatever then take that seriously. Experiment a bit if you don't have any real desires for a career.  That's what college is really about.  Still, Good luck.
