    I have Osgood-Schlatter Disease

    and I hate it. It's painful, I have a permanent lump under my knee and it restricts the amount of exercise I do (which is a massive down point for me). I would not wish this on anyone as it is horrible

    My OSD

    When I was fourteen, I starting having a lot of knee pain. I told no one because I didn't want to be fussed over like I was a little kid. I could have still gone in silence with my knee pain, if my knee hadn't locked itself during a street hockey game (p.s i'm a girl) in October...

    It Sucks

    i have it, but I don't care. I take motrin, so I don't have to wear a brace. But it does get annoying if something hits it. Holy CRAP it hurts. I had a baseball hit it. I think the bump grew after that. Lol
