Amanda_L : 32 weeks
Diary entry posted Fri 4:19pm 14 August 2009

But who's counting, right?! I am not using anything to walk anymore, though some days I think I should since I lean so far to the left every once in awhile. My shin pain is still there, but I am pushing through it and trying to ignore it. I have been biking, walking, swimming and lifting weights to get muscle back, which is better, but still visibly smaller than the good leg. I look back at all the crap I went through with this and seems somewhat surreal. I read posts from the newbies on the site and I cringe, wondering how the hell I made it through all of it. I hate not being active and am surprised I lived to see the end of this ordeal. I am back into "life" full swing. I go out, I shop, I hang out with friends, I work 50 hours a week and I love every minute of all of it. People tell me to ease into it... I have been resting for so long I just want to go go go!!! I still swell and ice nearly every night. I take the occasional advil,etc. Sleeping is no longer an issue for the most part. I havent taken a rx pain med in months. I still have debbie downer days - maybe 3-5 a month. Mostly because I want to run and I cant. I want to race and I cant. I want to not limp and I cant figure out how not to. Just those little things now though, nothing compared to the first few months. I am still on anti depressants and think I will be for awhile yet. Its just enough in my mind (the things I cant do) that it bugs me more than I lead on. But, I have made it this far!! My husband and I head to South Dakota this weekend on our motorcycles, then to Denver for a vacation, then I am going to Chicago for a girls weekend, so moving right along in life!! Limp or no limp, I will push through it!!!!
