Was diagnosed with arthritis yesterday … young for it, was what the doctors said… No cure… only pain management… the brain started reacting in the best way it knew how by deafening the words and a gentle ringing in my ears. What does this mean?
I can’t run anymore … the thing that I overcame…. this hurdle in my life and now the thing I miss … I can’t do it.
Well f*** it… I just have to go from here. That’s all I can do.
My dad was diagnosed early and almost the same situation. Getting off a plane…excruciating pain … thought he had broken his knee. I got tested last year when it initially happened. Came back negative…. took a year later for me to finally have an MRI. Then the doctor saw me this week … it’s all happening within a month and a half. Doctors appts.. surgeries… mri.. piercings .. can’t forget those.. side shave that I always wanted… counseling… I will not give up or give in. Maybe somehow I can conquer this or do something with it. But it still sucks… all I can do is laugh, cry, swear, shake my head and breathe on.
