My journey as a long distance runner who started the sport later in life.
Approximately 3.5 months since the accident and first surgery this is how my fingers look. I am straightening them, can’t you tell? They have remained unbending and useless for all this time. Sore to the slightest touch or bump and virtually incapable of completing the simplest tasks. I was clumsy before, but now I drop things without even realizing it’s happening; still counting on fingers that are no longer capable of the required position to prevent whatever from landing on the floor. I do not like how this has made me feel lesser than all I can be, all that I have been. It’s impotence, and I hope that the second surgery with a different doctor can ease it a bit. Let’s see.
