day 2091 – ultrasound visit

my ultrasound appointment took way too long for what it was worth. the lady helping me didn’t give any instructions throughout, then took a long time checking the report before re-entering the room and didn’t bother giving me any explanation or answers as she sends me off. i was so unimpressed i just went straight home instead of joining fellow g-string at eastside craft house. i expected a little more than what i got, but maybe i expected too much out of these high paid technicians

day 2086 – ganglion

a growing lump in my right elbow forced me to make a trip into my family doctor’s office. the bump expanded so much, into something i believe to be a tumor. it bothers me so much, i would be in much pain every time i rest my elbow on something. i consistently press on it thinking it would flatten out, but so far that doesn’t seem like it’s working. my doctor referred me for an ultrasound and also got me an xray referral for my ankle. we’ll figure out what it is first, but she doesn’t suggest i trade in the cyst for a scar

day 1835 – bad shoulder

checking into physio because my shoulder is massively preventing me to live my life and carry out my daily needs. i’ve put a halt on all my sports, workouts and physical activities for two whole weeks, yet there seems to be no improvement. did some rotational and shoulder stability stuff with kinesiologist before physio worked on my shoulder, elbow, wrist, neck, and knee. i’m hoping whatever my physio adjusted today is what i need to get me well on my way back into sports

day 1829 – woman in black

my 2xu tights getting in on the action while i do some active stretching. no shame taking a selfie because there’s a first time for everyone. i usually wear shorts into the gym so this is a new look for me sporting all black coveted compressions. just in the gym trying to get some maintenance work done while i can’t be an active participant in my normal activities. it wasn’t just the legs, my chest and shoulder is still very sore from physio’s beating. disappointed that the pain and my movement is still as limited, but a little premature to say that it’s not improving

day 1822 – cartwheel

throwing too many cartwheels and attempts of aerials nonstop can lead to severe injuries. i heard some kind of pop as i braced myself with an outstretched arm. i thought it had to be a dislocated shoulder or something had snapped in my elbow. i landed hard but i didn’t want to check what the problem could be because maybe i’m not ready to find out. as stubborn and stupid as i was, i continued practicing but knowing in the back of my mind it could be a major issue that needs attention

day 1385 – elbows


second week into my rehab program with the chiropractor and it brought some good news. although i still am off limits when it comes to the gym, second week is noticeably better than the first. i no longer wake up feeling like a train hit me.  my chiropractor likes that my back progressing at his pace, but now has to check whether my elbow is fractured. after bending it and twisting it, i’m leaning towards no fracture

day 1320 – can’t catch a break

what are the odds of wounding both elbows in a day?? i hurt myself often and i’ve gotten very good at doing so. didn’t think the initial hit could be so bad until a saw a trail down my arm. my parents freaked out over it and gave me their best version of tape job. felt like my body clock was utterly out of sync today and couldn’t explain why . don’t want to think tomorrow is monday again and not ready to take in another week of work and busyness
