My story really begins early in the fall of the year of 2003. I was starting
to experience the loss of some of my strength. My left arm and leg to
be exact. No real ache or pain.
I had over extended the bottom of my left foot a couple of months ago. I was
transferring a patient from his bed to his wheel chair at my work site. I was
working as a medical assistant at a health care site. I was taken by fellow
worker to a company doctor. He put me in a boot to support my weight,
keeping off my foot. I missed a couple of weeks work. First work I had missed
in three years. The foot seemed improved after a time.
A short time later, my knee on both of my lets started giving me a whole lot of
trouble. I was now having pain in both my legs and both of my knees. I began
to think that maybe it was actually caused by the weather. The weather was
starting to cool down. Fall and winter were approaching.
I was beginning to slow down on my job. I was employed by Great Bend
Health and Rehabilitation. The job of medical assistant requires that you are
in good health. My leg and arm had gotten so bad I just couldn’t do my job
as it should be done.
