day 1892 – handed to me

my hand and whole left side has really taken a fair share of beating the past year. first the broken thumb, then the torn supraspinatus tendon, plus the bruised and unknown status of my wrist and now smacked my once broken thumb. it’s frustrating as ever to never have proper moving body to work with. i really could use some full body bubble wrap for protection. tomorrow is the one year mark since suffering a devastating broken thumb, a memory i will likely never forget

day 1691 – she-unit

showing up in plain white beaters and snapbacks for another year of kings and queens tournament. the tournament competition level was very high as always and although we didn’t make it far into the elimination rounds, it’s always good to be with the gang. good thing my chiropractor was on site to do some heavy taping on my shoulder so i could hold it down enough to play. i must say it was weird playing in white beaters and i don’t think i’ll consider that again

day 1347 – blatt

who knew sour catch would be competing for blatt this playoff. it was a tough tier to be in and no surprise our playoff didn’t last long but maybe that’s not a bad thing because my shoulder is beyond wrecked when it doesn’t fully rotate. i do believe the team played the best we have all season; we laid it all out on the court and didn’t give an easy pass to either riceballz or pork. already looking forward to next season but first need to heal

day 1346- stim days

two years ago my knee was still going through the worst of it. being hooked up to machines and doing muscle stimulation multiple times a week was definitely a one of a kind experience. i cannot say it’s normal now, but it’s taken leaps and bounds considering where it once was. i’m wrecked today to the point where i could hardly lift my shoulder to manoeuvre a mouse. i’m sad and disgruntled but i’m reminded why i persevered through my knee problems all these years

day 1319 – reassessed

i got my shoulder reassessed and that explained why my shoulder doesn’t rotate like it should. the numbness and tingling through my arm has worsened the past two years. i’m told if it’s not addressed, it will be very difficult to continue my tennis and dodgeball. through some cupping alternatives, there’s a bit of improvement in my shoulder orientation, but it’ll take a lot more to adapt and remain in its proper place
