So glad to hear you're still sober, @RecoveringLife1! Getting through those birthdays and not drinking is a big achievement! (BTW, I hope you had a great birthday!) Sorry to hear about your knee pain. Even though you're not crazy about the exercises you've been given, maybe try them for a while and see how your knee reacts to them. I think going to the pool would be a great thing, too. Keep at it. One day at a time. And encourage your boyfriend, too. It's great that he's not drinking as much. We're here for you. Anytime. Happy to be part of your support network!
