day 1525 – damaged body

the appointment was so early i woke up close to a dozen times worried that i would miss it. had my butt looked at after being in utter discomfort; seeing much bruising made me worrisome. to fix my misalignment and damages, i had adjustments made for my tailbone and hip flexor. the wrist pain is getting really bad it’s not really a functioning hand at the moment; adds to the insult of my other already tendon damaged hand. physio got angry at me for pushing this appointment two weeks late but work just doesn’t allow for it. i’m kind of sad i’m already so utterly broken right now, a little consideration would be nice

day 1445 – supreme skating

first runs on ice with my new supremes and they felt immensely better. hockey is much better when the skates don’t hurt me to the point where i can’t even lace them up and choose to resort to old skates. all signs points the right direction after having played two games,  but will evaluate after a few more. even with a chiro visit in the morning, that wrist is still seriously bothering me. taping it up gives it support and helps restrict movement, but without a wrist mobility, my pass and shot game is compromised

day 540 – mri

i find that hospitals are always so poorly labelled i am never able to find what i am intending to do. either that or st paul’s hospital is designed to be an intended maze. i probably spent a good twenty minutes and walked through the entire first and second floor before finding the radiology centre. i had to stay still for the duration of the scan with my arm and wrist fixed in strap and stuck in a vacuum-like tube that constantly emitted loud beeping sounds, but somehow i was able to fall asleep throughout all that. i must be tired

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 485 – walk in clinic

image

when i walked in, and all i see is one counter, a red wall and a grey wall and only realized there were doors when a doctor came out of nowhere. this has got to be the most peculiar looking walk in clinic ever but the doctor was awesome because i got the referrals i needed. if only my family doctor was like this then i wouldn’t avoid seeing her unless i was in dire need

day 482 – adjustment time

image

my legs took a ton of beating and bruising lately including a bad knee collision a few days ago. instantly knew it was out but was still able to carry out my regular exercises the next little while without over compensating so i had hoped it wasn’t as bad as i initially thought. went in to check it out and my physio confirmed that my gut feeling was correct. getting both my knee cap popped back in place and wrist taken care of was painful as ever, but it had to be done. he gave me the hardest task possible and threatened i musnt make my knee cap out of place again. i will continue my long mission to search for ways to protect my knees keep them from shifting

day 475 – physioterrorist

wrist took a series of unfavorable blows this past week which caused it to be pretty much next to useless. though my left hand is much weaker in comparison, it is used extensively and losing function changes all complexity. driving is made tenfold more difficult since i am a left handed driver.  a much needed check up with my physio to fix that ailing wrist and seized up leg. after some excruciating pain, i was told to stay put for next twenty four hours and do nothing beyond walking and heat pad
