Injury depression

Thursday, October 25, 2018

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.

    I am sending big, huge hugs your way! I am so sorry you are dealing with this issue. I hope they can find some relief for you soon!
    I, too, am on the injured list from running right now and it's about to make me crazy. I am depressed and have lost my mojo for other activities I enjoy. I do have hope in sight after I go through a round of PT, that I can get back on the road.
    I just wanted you to know that there are those of us that totally understand.

    You probably feel broken physically and are grieving the potential loss of something you love (running). AND now you have to come up with new ways to be active and change is hard. We get it! Hang in there.

    I, for one,and I expect other Sparkers can understand being depressed over an injury such as that. I have a problem knee that takes me away from getting my exercise when it acts up and it IS depressing. The most important thing we can do, however, is to take care of the body. Praying for patience and sending a Spark hug to you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
