This week's Thursday Blog Project topic, compliments of Susanna: Have you ever had an injury stop you from doing something you really wanted to do? How did you deal with that?
Ever since I was a kid, I've loved to roller skate, roller blade and ice skate. That's why for one of my birthday party's as a child I had it at a local roller skating rink. One of the most vivid memories from that party was when I asked my brother J if he was going to skate. "No" he replied. "Don't you remember the last time I went roller skating?"
My brother broke his right arm twice roller skating. Both times were at roller skating birthday parties like the one I had. Since he writes with his right hand this sorta made him unable to write. I wonder how he'll handle it when my niece and nephew want to roller skate. Is your abilitiy to balance on roller skates genetic?
I know none of this is about me. Being the superstitious person I try not to talk about this kind of stuff. Though I acknowledge that injury can happen at anytime, I don't like to think about it. I think if I did I'd lock myself in my house and never come out... ok, maybe not that extreme, but still.
Instead, I'll ask that you take a look at what my fellow bloggers have to say about their past injuries...
