When the Game Slow Down, Challenge Yourself!

When the Game Slow Down, Challenge Yourself!

I am dealing with the Achilles Tendon Injury and after a few weeks of sitting around the house and doing what the doctor ordered, I can’t help but recall the time I was injured while playing Pro football. While you are rehabbing and in and out of therapy, when you watch your team practice, the game slow down for you. You watch as guys playing your position seem to be moving slow and in a strange way it seems that he openings for opportunity can be seen from a mile away. You can’t help but imagine yourself being out there playing the game and how you would make a different move or just do things faster than what you are seeing there on the sidelines. Of course things do happen a lot faster while engaged in the actual game as oppose to watching from the sidelines however there is an element of truth in what I am stating.

Now instead of the game of football slowing down, it is the game of life that is slowing down for me. I am learning how to take my time and I am seeing opportunities, having ideas and implementing them that I probably would speed right on by if not for this injury situation. Now if you are recovering from an injury, dealing with a job loss or a personal setback, I ask you to challenge yourself.

Feeling a little Blah from Watching Too Much TV

I must say that I have been totally out of character as far as my normal day to day activities are concerned. As I recover from this ATR, I am doing what the doctor ordered and that is get in a comfortable place and keep my leg elevated. Now that my daily energy level is getting stronger and starting to get more of my projects and work completed, I took a step back and started watching too much TV. I have tried to get into the Netflix craze and watch a ton of movies and I am starting to be successful at it, however I must admit that I am feeling a little Blah about it today. I had a chance to talk with a couple of friends of mine and they all agreed that, Yes you must be feeling Blah because sitting around the house watching TV is definitely not me.  However they reminded me that I am injured and just going through the ups and downs of recovery and making adjustments during this time.

For the most part, there were some shows worth watching and I received a few nuggets  from them however I found myself watching replays of movies after movies, such as Diehard, Training Day, Wall Street, 300 and Troy to name a few. I knew I was heading for TV addiction when I tuned into the movie 300 and notice that the movie Troy was on at the same time and I found myself going back and forth between the movies during commercial breaks. My wife noticed me doing this and asked, “Haven’t you watched both of these movies several times before?” Well, I got to snap out of it, shake it off and get back to business.

When I am not out meeting with clients or networking with potential business partners and companies, I am usually working from home as online marketer and I like to have my office and home as quiet as possible with only the air condition blowing during this time of the year. I’m not condemning anyone that watches daytime TV, whatever works for you however I am big on being productive and getting things accomplished during the day. Yes, as much as I hear people saying to take it easy and I have been doing this however it feels better in my opinion, I don’t want to become mentally lazy just because I am physically slowed down for a period of time.

Now instead of watching TV just for the sake of turning it on and passing the time, I will make it as a reward based activity and perform a task and reward myself with catching up on a few TV Show recordings. On the flip side, I am going to enjoy my recovery and enjoy watching some good TV shows and not feel Blah about it. I’m not at the point where I can keep the house quiet and work all day and this is something that I will work up to however the reward based system I think will work well for me in the next few weeks and I will update you on my progress.
Enjoy Your Recovery,

Sleeping with the Covers Off! Week 3

Sleeping with the Covers Off!

This week seem to be creeping by and I am glad to be a part of this community because the information and experiences from so many people are real. I am in the boot now and things are going as planned however the other night, I was reading some of the other blogs and noticed a post regarding sleeping with the boot or not. I received instructions from my doctor to keep my boot on whenever I am vertical however I can take it off when I go to sleep.

Sweet Dreaming!

One of the statements in the article discussed getting your foot or toes caught up in the bed covers. I thought this statement was funny at first until my foot got caught in my bed covers last night and I must say; it Woke Me Up!!! At 3:35 in the morning, I went from dreaming a beautiful dream to rolling over in bed and BAM! Now I’m sitting up looking at my foot like someone came in and stuck a nail through it.

The sudden pain went away however this was a strong reminder to not get too comfy and relaxed and not take this injury and other’s experiences for granted. It’s a good bet to say that tonight I will be sleeping with the covers off of the injured leg and with a loose wrap on it.

No matter how small or detailed your experiences are with your recovery, please share because they really do help. No matter how comical or strange your stories or testimonies may be, they are real and encouraging to say the least and may apply to us in many situations.
Sweet Dreams with the covers off!

Getting Fitted for Your Boot is a Nightmare!

This post will be straight and to the point… No Sugarcoating!!!

 photo achilles boot_zps5fwyd3zg.jpg

“Oh My Goodness! You want me to do what? Wait a minute, let me catch my breath…” These statements and a few more that I am unable to write in this post are what came out of my mouth as I was getting fit for my boot. I have been researching this injury by reading blogs, comments, other people’s experiences, even watching the video muse of Kobe Bryant and his ATR injury comeback and never have I heard, read or saw someone going through this painful experience that I just went through with getting fitted for my boot. From the information that I have gleaned from everything as well as my own experience up to this point has been on point. I mean things such as pre-surgery, surgery, post surgery, foot elevation, rest, getting the cast cut off, having the sutures and stitches removed and more have all went according to planned. That is, until it was time to get fitted for this boot.

When the Doctor told me that we will get you in a boot I was ecstatic to say the least. He gave me the instructions when to take it off, keep on when vertical, do this and do that and I was smiling from ear to ear. Until the “mean and hard to get along with” nurse walked in with the boot. She asked me to sit-up and place my leg inside of the boot with my heal touching the pads on the bottom of the boot. When I say this is painful I mean this is painful!  I had my foot and heel in the boot but the nurse wanted me to move my leg up 2-3 inches to get the straps to line up on the sides. She kept telling me to push my leg forward but with the swelling and the tightness of the achilles, that leg would not move. The pain was excruciating to say least with me stretching that tendon like that minutes after I had the cast removed. She added another pad in the heel but my wife saw the angle and ask that I change my position on the table to the boot and then it became somewhat better.

Now there may be others that didn’t experience this level of pain and discomfort and for this I am glad you didn’t however for others that haven’t reach this phase yet, at least you can say that Mr. Action Jackson did alert you to this point in the recovery process and now you are mentally prepared for it. I spent the last 12 or so hours on the phone with friends and associates that have had this injury in the past and I asked them point blank, why didn’t they say anything about the pain involved with getting fitted for the boot. To my surprise they all laughed and stated that they didn’t want me to know about this because if I had of known I may not have wanted the boot, lol!

Well getting back to that nurse I mentioned a few statements earlier. She wasn’t mean and hard to get along with, she was very nice and did her job of patiently waiting for me to say a few “unpleasant” words under my breath, dodge a few of my kicks coming at her and gave me enough time to catch my breath and start again with pushing my leg in the boot.

After all is said and done, I am glad I am at the next stage and for those that have went through this process before and didn’t warn us about the pain… shame on ya, lol! For those that are coming along to this phase, make sure you are mentally prepared for the worst and be ready for anything when it comes to healing and recovery of this ATR injury. Everyone will have their own stories of this ATR journey and like coaches and athletes say before in competition, “It’s best to stay ready as oppose to getting ready!”
Be Strong!

P.S. Take a look here with this nice sleeping boot that I am considering after I realized how bulky that walking boot can be in my bed.
