5 months have passed since “that day,” and I can’t even begin to believe that it has been that long already. I’m now starting to understand the “it’ll get better with time” posts that used to somewhat annoy me in those early days of my injury. Now, I too, can echo that same sentiment to those of you who may be just beginning this tedious journey known as ATR recovery. It does, in fact, get better. Time does heal, and normalcy reinstates itself just about when you’ve given up on it.
I know that I’ve experienced somewhat of a speedier recovery than most, but it hasn’t come without it’s up and down days. I’m finally back to playing tennis (hopefully matches soon) for about 2 hours, 2-3 times a week. My balance on my ATR foot has almost fully returned, and I’ve been back at work for 5 weeks and I run around my store like the crazy man I was before that fateful day. I can jog again (can’t wait to run my 10 miles a day), and I can do my plyometrics DVD on my P90X!!!!
I know that I’m a ways away, but I’m hoping to be the very same encouragement that I sought those months ago looking for “someone who understood” what I was going through. I’m excited that each day brings new strength and a closer step to full recovery. Next month will be a half year since my rupture and I can’t wait to see what new competencies I develop in that time.
To all of you, stick with it because it does get better……HAPPY HEALING!!!
