Injuries are depressing
Monday, August 09, 2010
A week ago today I injured myself while exercising. The Dr. thinks I have micro tears in the meniscus of my left knee. I've been in a brace and on crutches for a week now...I thought by now I'd be able to walk without the crutches but still with the brace for support. Unfortunately, my positive thinking just isn't panning out. I'm still in pain when not jacked up on ibuprofen. I refused pain meds at the time and some moments I'm thinking I definitely need them. I havn't been able to do much but R.I.C.E for the last week and it's pretty depressing. I miss my workouts, I miss being even remotely active. I honestly thought I'd be back on both feet by now and it just isn't reality and I'm now really feeling down and depressed about it.
I havn't been able to fix decent meals, run errands, etc...
I know I need to take it a day at a time and not push it so I will heal, but man...today I just feel like crying.
