I hate having injuries

Monday, January 28, 2013

I tried to stay off my leg all weekend even though I did go to a Mardi Gras parade. I kept ice of my injury, its feeling a little better. I tried to work out a little this morning. I rode a stationary bike for 45 mins and then I hit the treadmill for 15 mins for a VERY light workout. Im about to ice my leg down, and later this afternoon I will go to the gym again for a light workout. Even though im hurt I dont want to get out of the habit of going to the gym. I want to hit 250lbs this year and im going to work my butt off trying to get there. These small little injuries are just getting in the way and aggravating! Im going to work threw them~

    You can do this, JK. I know your leg hurts, but at least staying active (while not straining) will hopefully help recover. I hope you can make an appointment with a doctor if it doesn't feel better soon.

    That's a great attitude to have. Just be careful to not over do it.

    I so understand I have just injured my shoulder I think a result of the push ups I've been doing. I'll share my experience from the ER with you .......

    Oh my, what a day in the ER !!! All I can say is it was awlful. When I got there I was registered, triaged and xrayed all with in 30 mins and then the wait began .... 3 hours later I am finally seen by a Dr who gave me all of 10 minutes and still no real diagnosis, called it a strain !!! Said xrays showed nothing of concern gave me IBD and oxy-something or other for pain.... but I will not take that at all, I heard to much bad stuff about it so I will just use the IBP that I already have here at home anyway !!! What a waste of my day and time !!! This is why I was so hesitant in going to the ER in the first place but I was concerned I did something really bad. My friend Carol came up to the ER and sat with me the whole time, I was so surprised to see her when she walked up to me, what a trooper !!! and besides that she gave me $40 toward groceries. What a sweetheart !!! I will contact the orthopedic Dr in the morning to schedule a follow up , he is head of that specialy clinic and my cousin works for him so I should be able to get an appt soon and get a real diagnosis of the problem.

    Sorry for the rant but thanks for letting me get it off my chest !!! Much needed.

    and on a different note ...... "GO RAVENS" !!!!!!!
