I just posted good news about my recovery but I have another topic I would love some help with. I am finally back to a place where I can workout with friends again and resume some normal activity. Funny thing though. People are scared of me and my injury. I tried inviting myself back to work out with my old trainer, friends, track workout, etc. I tell everyone that I am taking it slow, paying attention to my body, have clearance from PT…..but I can see the hesitation on faces. And, they are not really inviting me back? They don’t know much about this injury, other than it is incredibly debilitating and scary and they are afraid I am going to re injure myself with them. The downside is that I primarily workout by myself, and I think it will be this way until I am 100%. Just curious if anyone else has run into this? I expected a lot of reactions to me getting better but I did not expect fear. It makes sense to me now but it is kind of a bummer. People think I am more broken than I am. Anyone else experience this? Right now, the thing that is motivating me is this dream I have of showing up to a workout or run and just flying past everyone else, as the “injured” girl. I know it is a way off but it is keeping me going.
