day 1514 – bruise much 

fresh bruises on my arm after taking a pregame collision and another bodycheck at my saturday night hockey games. this might be the only chance for my left arm to be buffer than my right. my arm is not looking too good but my foot is in much worse condition. the additional bone growth in my heel looks like a tumour and is getting so bad it even hurts to wear regular shoes. i need to get this checked out and fixed before it becomes something of a much bigger and permanent problem

day 1501 – bone buldge

the bruising on this left foot is looking worse than hours before. i couldn’t put on skates today but that wouldn’t have mattered anyway as i’m way too sore from too much activities yesterday. maximal soreness results in minimal movements; my back ached, my calves tight, my hip flexor restricting, my foot and shin bruised and my si joint problems still persist. the soreness isn’t a big issue, it’s the persisting joint pain and abnormal bruising that worries me

day 1474 – dr seuss

taking a page out of dr seuss to motivate myself on this rain-filled monday. it’s always hard to wake up on monday and only harder when my back and neck are not at par and now even my elbow is in damaged. my elbow is swollen and in pain, but i’m in denial that is more than a bad bruise. i’ll wait for my chiropractor’s judgement before deciding if i need further scans. i can’t picture what life would be like if it came back positive

day 868 – finger fix

image

just trying to get help for my finger by having an acupuncturist poke me repeatedly with needles. in order to decrease the swelling and bruising, draining some blood out of my finger is a must. she told me it’d hurt a little and that i will lose six to seven drops of blood; she told me not to panic, and i didn’t. maybe it’s the fact that i didn’t, that she decided she’d go through the process twice. i would admit it was painful especially having her squeeze it out, but i am disappointed i didn’t lose twelve droplets nor did i manage to get good snapchat footage of the process

day 725 – plans ruined

image

guess who’s not going and not capable of going to celebration of lights fireworks tonight. i sprained my ankle this morning but life and teaching must carry on without showing my pain to others. strapped on some tape and onwards with teaching, won’t know how black and blue it will be until it’s unwrapped. this ruins a lot set plans and puts a lot of my upcoming activities in jeopardy

day 502 – sweats

image

couldn’t wait any longer to wear my new vdl sweats out, first off, to physio because its comfy and warm. pleasant surprise to hear that both my knees are fine and progressively getting stronger, meaning my hard work is paying off. before i feel too good, he completely crushed my shin into bits and hurt me like there’s no tomrorow. still have to worry about my wrist moving onto further scans and tests to see what’s the underlying problem

day 472 – bruise lots

image

feels like i am bruising by the minute and i just can’t stop it from accumulating. this is just a portion of the eleven bruises on my legs, there’s also several on my arms and back. i must have done something sometime when i clearly had no awareness. also banged up my wrist big time it’s completely out of commission to hold or do anything. better fix some of this soon or will be a shocker when my parents return
