Freshman year, tore acl in right knee playing high school soccer. Two weeks ago, tore my acl in left leg playing rec soccer. Fuck. Me.
And I just bought an Axe for $300 in early August and haven't been able to use it yet, used my Overload knee pads once and now need to sell them cause I can't wear them with donjoy knee braces.
I'm probably going to stuck with my bum leg until mid November, and then rehab for six months. So basically, I'm going to get bent over in school for a month cause I'm in hard classes, and I'm going to be out of paintball until summer. I'm not risking anymore injuries so I'm done with sports, not paintball though.
SO FRUSTERATING.
On the good side, we bought an amazing excercise bike and an ice machine, so life should be a little easier. And there really won't be any surprises this time around, but nevertheless, this sucks so much. Plus, college apps and scholarship essays are due soon. Definetly not how I wanted senior year to go.

Every time I step on the pitch, I get scared of getting hurt. (ACL mostly)


Thanks for reassuring the possibility of that happening to me...

I play soccer, I'll likely play lacrosse, and I play speedball and I've never been hurt. But I feel like I'm due for an injury.

It depends on what sports you are involved in. More contact sports means better chance of injury.

Also, sometimes your body just gives out. I was active duty Marines for 5 years, and was always working out and PTing. Now I have disability compensation for the rest of my life for a blown out knee and a fucked up elbow. If you stress yourself too hard for too long, your body breaks.

Both acl tears came from hard hits. Basically the other player's knee hit the outside of my knee while I was more stationary, going up for a header and passing, not much I can do to stop that. Knee injuries to me are just random bad luck events.

And paintball isn't a contact sport, much less risk of hurting yourself.

I played both sides offensive and defensive line for my football team, spent the entire winter throwing shot and "conditioning" for winter track, as well as lifting for football, then went into baseball.

I never broke down.

You do realize that not everyone is built the same way genetically right? We aren't just carbon copies of the same person with different colored hair and eyes and skin..

If your body is going to break, it's going to break, one way or another. It might not fail catastrophically, but I can guarantee you, every day you live, your body is weakening and dying off slowly. Sooner or later, shits going to start failing on you. If you put it through rigorous stress (read: carrying heavy equipment all day, every day and walking for miles), eventually your joints are going to start wearing down faster, much like the parts on a car. It's just the way we are built.

Im well aware of that but its astounding to me how people are always having these major injuries. 

 

So young but unable to keep healthy or take the necessary precautions to try and prevent them and protect yourself.

Necessary precautions? Do you understand how random ACL/knee injuries are? Sam Bradford tore his yesterday landing on his knees and sliding, Brian Cushing tore his by getting hit from the outside. I tore both of mine by hits to the outside. It's hard to argue that Sam Bradford and Brian Cushing didn't take precautions and aren't healthy.

I think you're thinking of injuries like muscle cramps, sprains, pulls, and easily preventable injuries.

I am not specifically referring to your injury. However there are a lot of instances where people I know hurt themselves by using poor form in the gym, or even by simply doing something stupid in a practice, your acl tare is simply bad luck. Hope it heals up quickly.

That might be a good thing for the team. He sucks.

I want Marc Bulger back! But get a decent O-line first.

 

The Rams O-line has been garbage for far too long.
