In the past few years 20 yrs. I walked through my basement door and shattered my calcamis joint. The docters were concerned about my recovery and I was sent home for six weeks so the swellon could go down in order to put it in a cast. There wasn't much they could do for the injury.
I spent the year on the couch having my 10yr old son looking after me. I was not even able to use the rest on my own. These were some of the hardest days of me life.
I was 25yrs old when this happened and considered myself a athletic pearsom and in thr prime of my life.
Doctor's have offered to try and fix it but the outcome doesn't sound promising. I also have a shattered left shoulder from snowboarding.
Now I suffer from a debillitating aching in my left foot, ankle, and into my lower back from limping. Some days I cant put any pressure on my foot, I cant climb a ladder or a steep hill, I can stand on my foot for more then an hour at the most.
I also suffer from very high blood presure and severe panic attacks. It has become so bad I am afraid to leave the safety of my place. I have a new doctor and we are trying our best to get this under control
In the last few years I have tried to educate my self in many different fields: Web-site design, marketing and research, Art Design, Interior Design.
I have started a kids clothing design and designed an Eco kids story to help teach kids that we all have to be responsible. schools find this a great learning tool.
I know my phisical problem keeps me back. I could do so much and become someone to help if I only had a chance
