Everyday this week I have cried in secret, because it’s embarrassing to be depressed about not being able to run.
I went to the Ortho last week and he told me I can’t run until they do an Arthoscopic MRI of my hip to see what’s causing the constant pain.
He diagnosed me with shallow sockets that cause hyper mobility. Basically my joints don’t stay in socket. It’s a genetic condition that I can’t fix. It’s what made me a good gymnast, but they think it’s also caused a torn labrum in my hip. He thinks I’ll need surgery. Until then I just wait and rest. 😕
No one understands why I’m so depressed about not being able to be my active self. The ache in my hip is a constant reminder that my body doesn’t work right.
Sorry I just need to vent.
