day 456 – breaking new ground

image

lack of action picture so here’s what my kinesiologist claimed as his awesome water bottle. feeling accomplished i am able to take my rehab execises up to next level after patiently working at the same level for a few months. it helps being trained and constantly pushed to take steps breaking into new ground and greater difficulty with each exercise. and now i need to keep my lifting consistent and work my way back to the weights i was capable of during my peak form. i am eager and feeling determined to pick it up and break into more new territory very soon

day 441 – last minute tune up

image

doing some last minute tuning before heading south for competition this weekend. there was something noticeably wrong with my wrist, but was also told knee cap was once again shifted out. that took me by surprise because i was feeling and functioning just fine since last visit. i guess my body has lost the ability to feel. this brings bad news to my dodgeball team because it means i must take the night off all physical activities

day 419 – my rationale

image

life is all about getting over challenges to be able to enjoy the things i consider fulfilling and meaningful. everyone has different values in life and many have disagreed with my decisions but have supported me in ways possible. no stranger to pain and injuries but today is one of those days where i feel absolutely grateful at my appointment. for the first time in a long time, i actually feel like i have my legs under me and all the beating i have taken is paying off. a big shout out to my physio and kinesiologists who have kept me in my sports throughout the years. couldn’t have done it without any one of you

day 400 – need to fix

image

still in terrible discomfort and needing relief and adjustment is the current priority of my life. not understanding the cause behind all the complications and not long until i run out of patience trying to understand. someone help me do a knee replacement so i can happily continue living my life the way it should be. pain has been such a big part of my life, it is certainly a privilege to live pain free for one day. also noting that blogging my 400th day is quite an achievement

day 388 – alternating legs

image

one day it feels fine and next day its completely opposite. this time attending to my left leg that somehow messed up without my awareness. there’s been unwanted scraping and clicking sounds when doing certain movements which has got me worried. both kneecaps taking turns breaking down constantly challenges my physical and mental aptitude. i don’t know what i have ever done to them but i know my knees hate me for life

 

day 344 – check up

image

bored while waiting to see what the physio says and wondering how my knee is holding up after resuming most if not all my activities. was capable of doing the usual exercises with some ease and even tried some new variations, but its still feels much weaker than pre injury. i personally think it’s feeling better but keeping in mind that my feelings are sometimes off by a mile so my assumptions are irrelevant. needing to find distractions to keep myself occupied and entertained during my waits

day 315 – physio’s jail free verdict

image

one of the best days that brought me the happiest news in past three weeks. physio informed me xrays shows no fracture and i no longer require an mri like initially suggested. which ultimately means i am finally jail free and cleared to gradually get back. all i need to do is do the exercise as i am told to work my way back up, and let my physio take care of the rest and hopefully make my comeback soon. it will for sure involve a lot of patience, hard work, training and tons of beating. i will no doubt work hard at it and push myself within the constraints, because i am determined to get back and surpass my top form
