I am planning to move out of state. I am in USA. Looking at some places and sending in my resume. I try to take best care of my health (my Primary Care Physician says I am healthier than her!), i.e stay at ideal weight, do 30 minutes exercise each day, don't watch TV, spend lot of time on housework. My knee got sore on Friday, now it is paining that I have to call into work Sick tomorrow (hoping my PCP can see me just to make sure everything is ok). I believe I got knee pain because I carry heavy lunch bag to work (I don't trust outside food unless it is coffee or tea), and I distributed the weight poorly, hence my left knee is in pain. But here is my question. How do I handle situation if I get knee pain, or I get ill, etc while I am moving. The burden in 100% on my shoulders, no one is able to take care of me. Please tell me what things I should consider. What life skills should I know. I'd like to make a plan so I can manage the unexpected.
