my big nightmare!
« on: January 05, 2004, 07:57:12 AM »
 yea it all started like a big nightmare from the instant I got hit till today  ... Just the thought of not plaing for 6 months gave me the chills ... wen I fell to the groung holding my knee all I could think about is "what if I tore my acl?!" thats how thouse few tears fell down my chic . I was so woried about it I didnt even mind the pain  looking at my huge goaly geting up next to me with the ball  in his 2 huge arms all I could think of is his big body craking into my knee cap.. That loud pop just kept going through  my mind over and over agane. next thing I know my  goaly is asking me if i was ok , I didnt awnser I didnt want to awnser , laing on the ground  I praid  for evrithing to be ok.. soon my  coach came over he saw the hole thing he  knew  how bad it was.. wen I got back up  I nodest i could walk wich was a relif.. Not for long, wile  I was walking back to the bench  the ball went out of bouns  I turned to get it  before I knew  I felt the pain of a knife going  through my knee  and nodest my knee didnt keep me  up and then I found my self back on the ground  this time I knew it was bad.. Not being able to hold my tears I laid there  wanting to waik up from this  horable dream... soon I found out that I tore my acl ,mcl , brused the bone and damaged cartalege... after a month of hell  i had surgery for my acl.. now 3 months later  I sit here thinking abouted .. telling my self how hard its going to be to get back in shape spending hole days at the gym  because  I want to get my musels back because I cant take  to sit and wach animore because I want to be back to normal :'(... I know it could be a lot worst  ..but I cant take it animore some time I even wish I wasent in this world  the only thing that keeps me going is knowing I will be back plaing some day  and that I  only need 3 more moths  for this night mare to be over  or atlest close to being over....  

well hope i didnt bore u with this hole big thing

hang in there athena...you're passion to get back out there can only help you!! I haven't been out as long as you yet, but i'm in the same boat-completely tore the acl, mcl, damaged both cartilage pads- playing volleyball 2 months ago (1 month post op).  I'm definatly not looking forward to the months ahead, especially not being out of all the sports I love. I don't know if it'll help you...but I made myself a countdown calendar to the dates the doctor gave me..it can be encouraging to see that you're halfway to a certain point in recovery, or to look back on how many weeks you've made it through already! good luck with you're recovery, and i hope you're back out on the field soon, stronger than ever!!

Hey Athena !!

Of course you have all right in the world coming here beeing sad. This board is for getting help, encouragement, someone to grin with and finally get a light in the dark tunnel. I really feel for you. But there will be a day when things change, even if it isn't today I promise the day will come. Meanwhile you have to look at the small things which are changing maybe not everyday but maybe once a week when you notice that you are feeling better and getting better. A kneedamage isn't solved in one day. It takes a lot of sweat and tears. But you have come a bite on your journey back remember that. Think of how you are today and how you were right after surgery. A big difference isn't it ? I have gone from palying hanball,football and basketball to sitting in wheelchair fulltime. i will never ever going to walk again but I've found my sporty life again by playing wheelchairbasket and skiing downhill in a sitski. I remember the first eve when i played wheelchairbasket in my team and felt the pulse going up again after so many years without it. It was..... I can't even describe it, how happy i were.
I know you will be back, just be patient. Better come bakc and go on playing that begin to early and have to stop for a while again.
Wish you the best and remember whenever you need talking you find people here.
