If one more person says to me, “You’re 40! Of course you hurt yourself jumping off a box.” I’m going to scream. What are some of the most insensitive things people have said to you? I know the best medicine is a positive attitude, but sometimes you gotta let it all out. Where better than here, with people who understand you?
Had surgery today. I was terrified about the whole thing, but went much more smoothly than I anticipated. I am not in very much pain and resting comfortably, watching cartoons with the kids. Just wanted to share that in case someone out there is worried about their upcoming surgery. It is definitely not a fun experience, but you can do it! Ok. That’s all for today. The Vicodin is carrying me off to la la land…
I ruptured my left Achilles Tendon doing box jumps during a Cross Fit Class. I was on round 6 and on my 14th going into my 15th jump when…bam! I heard a loud pop and turned around to see who had kicked me in the ankle. I hoped around in pain for a while holding my leg, before I collapsed. I am currently waiting to see a podiatrist. I have an appointment next Tuesday which will be 12 days after my injury. Not happy about having to wait that long. I am learning a lot from this website while I wait, and trying to stay positive and count my blessings.
