not bad not bad


I was just listing my injuries that happened recently in SUCCESSION, i've been out for a solid 2 years alternating between upper body and lower body to try and keep active.
i've got a few more to list but happened a a bit further back.

i.e.

Greenstick fracture of the proximal ulnar epiphysis x 2
Cracked skull
Cracked T 10
Broken fingers (can't even remember how many but most of them have seen some plaster action)
Dislocated ankle
Broken hip (this was by far the worst puked right after it happened and couldn't turn over in bed for a week after)
Dislocated both shoulders prior to the bankart lesion in my left.
Knocked out my front teeth.

Then there was the cool stuff like being stabbed and being shot at but don't really count as injuries

Growing up in africa skateboarding/rugby/motocross does come with it's risks

I forgot the following:

- broke both my front teeth

- dropped a 45 on my shin/foot. It removed a strip of skin about an inch wide and 2 inches long from my shin and broke 4 toes, not the big toe, thank god

-flipped over the handle bars of my bike (didn't see a huge pothole because I was looking over my shoulder, broke my fall with my face, no helmet. I think the peg clipped the back of my head because nearly 20 years later I still have a lump on the back of my skull. I woke up under a car in the middle of the street.

-my brother decided to slapshot a hockey puck out of my hand effectively peeling the skin off half of my finger.

-I punched a plastic window thinking it would shatter when I was 10, it didn't, just sliced the shit out of my right forearm. Had to break off pieces to pull my arm out.

-hoped over a chain link fence when I was 12. only I was a fat 12 and didn't quite make it. The fence had the twisted barbs at the top, and took it straight into my right kneecap. I hung on for dear lift until my uncle lifted my off the fence and pull my knee off the barb.

-my pet snake bit my thumb and I pulled it off. NEVER PULL!!! it was like a 10000 fishhooks digging in.

I'm not making any of this up.

I didn't miss a scheduled day at the gym for over a year and a half until last thursday. A girl I have mutual attraction with is moving in 50 days and I thought I'd be spending time with her at least until then, but she changed her mind. Not the end of the world but it still sucks. Anxiety can be a killer.

How does depression hurt training? I feel like i would get depressed if i didn't regularly train...

Clinical depression, not oh I feel kind of down in the dumps today depression.

Injury, surgery and working out of town derails me



The kind where you cant even sleep at night youre so sad but you have no idea why. The kind were you spend the entire day feeling like a zombie, only youve been here for so long its become normal, making it all the more irritating. The kind where no food seems appealing, hanging out with friends seems like the worst situation possible and school, fuck that. Thats the kind of depression that can derail training. Sure some people get sad and work it out at the gym, im talking ive been depressed for weeks and months on end with no feeling of hope for anything different.


Exactly was my point, many people here believe Depression is just big pharma and evil Drs way of making money. That you just need to BELIEVE you are happy and just get over it, which is of course horse shit.

Are you on meds?


I hate that attitude from ppl who don't know what they are talking about. Granted, now that I'm generally happy and in a different place in my life and I don't need Prozac to function, I don't think I would have gotten here if I hadn't been on meds. Meds allowed me to function for the last 10-11 years.

So you don't actually need meds but it is clinical?

Not sure what you definition of troll is. I've already proven that I am who I say I am. Thats undebateable. If its someone that says things in order to get a rise out of people, then yes, im guilty. But so are many others. We as humans love to piss others off. We enjoy it. Though I feel humans are the lowest form of creature on this planet. as far as integrity and loyalty go.

injuries don't derail me. they result in a bit of a detour... but there is always something i can get into the spirit of progressing.

the biggest motivation suck / derailer for me is feeling like it isn't my space anymore. i can mostly ignore odd randoms (though sometimes they get to me) but the absolute worst is people i sorta know outside the gym. i don't know... sure i rest for three minutes but i really need to focus on me... otherwise... it isn't me time anymore.

bit of a rant...

what is up with guys where it can be the case that there is literally me and one other person in the gym and that other person has to set up shop within two meters of me? usually right in front of me. are people intentionally trying to be annoying? why? what. the. fuck.

?

Injuries derail me, I'm nursing a strained tendon in my forearm and I cannot lift anything with it until it's fully healed or risk re-injuring it. Even things like lateral raises and overhead presses can't be done because that requires lifting the dumbbells which utilize the forearm muscles.

I have had a lot of turmoil in my relationships in the last few months (broke up with the 2nd girlfriend in 7 months) it hasn't really de-railed me, I find myself wanting to train because it just relaxes me and reduces the emotional frustration within me.

Unfortunately I've got hit with a double whammy this week, my most recent girlfriend broke up with me and I'm nursing this damn forearm injury, I'm kind of in idle mode now, but I'm still getting in some bike riding at the lake to stay active.

A lot of times it's keeping your routine intact through all of the ups and downs that life throws at you that keeps you sane.

Heh heh. Same as when you go to a restaurant and the place is literally empty. The hostess seats you, and 10 minutes later she seats the only other customer right next to you.

well... maybe sorta the same with the annoying... but sorta not since it makes sense to keep things together from the waitresses POV. saves some walking...

but the gym thing? all i can figure is that the person is trying to get me to focus on them. aka: they are intentionally trying to rerail my training. which just sucks.
