The result of too much physical activity or an unexpected impact that causes the need for an amount of isolation and protection of the injured area. Often isolating this area results in isolating oneself because outside world activities can aggravate injuries.
It feeds on closing one’s self off from the rest of the world, sitting in your room, and doing none of your usual activities. The more alone you are, the more you dwell on the pain. The more you stay in bed and do nothing, the more you think of how much nothing is in your life.
While attempting not to injure/further injure oneself physically one may end up injuring themselves emotionally.
The solution: TBD…
Current status: Not physically broken and probably not depressed, grateful for both of these things, and only slightly concerned about the next time something breaks.
While doing arm stretches on a foam roller I slid off the roller entirely and slammed my right hip into the linoleum floor…It’s been 13 hours since then, and I’m just now noticing a dull ache.
Hopefully that’s a good sign, that I went so long without noticing the pain…Hopefully.
I feel old. So old.
There’s a benefit to having old person bones and illnesses though, right?
Chronic illnesses are totally like, cool…Hipster with the broken hip at 25, right?
I don’t want any more broken bones.
Gaaaah. If this holds up then I’m definitely going to be a community college professor in the U.S. for the rest of my life and never go to Spain…Unable to leave the country because nobody wants to give health insurance and travel visas to a chick who breaks bones so frequently.
I’m sure I’m fine.
It’s not broken.
Of course I didn’t think my hip, toes, or neck were broken last several times I broke things either.
The bones have a sneaky way of being in pain and making you think that it’s just arthritis. It’s probably just sore from the slight fall and then walking around all day. Totally.
I have way too much to do to break another hip. No puedo hacer esto.
Alright, if it’s not better in 24 hours I’ll contact doctors.
Ibuprofen in the mean time.
