Running today: RIP my knee, also rip my knee is appropriate…

I don’t like to complain, but my knee hurts and for some weird reason I think writing about it will help. So, this morning, I was running and jamming and minding my own business like:

(ok so not exactly but yeah)

Then, I didn’t even see what I tripped over(but knowing me it was probably air) and I fell, like:

I looked at my knee and saw that it was beginning to bleed. I was 3/4 of a mile away from home (and from completing my run) and no one was home, so i made myself not cry and got up, like:

however, you know how when you see an injury it suddenly hurts really bad? Yeah, that happened, then I went into panic mode because i realized i was home by myself and that i don’t know how to treat any kind of injury at all, like…

then, it started doing this awesome thing where it stuck to the ickyness and made it start bleeding again…and now, like 13 hours after my injury, it’s still bleeding and doing weird things and hurting….

am i dying?

and my parents think i’m exaggerating and have gone to bed. you’d think your dad being a nurse would be helpful in this situation, but he’s better at dealing with open heart surgery….
