Well this is now my 13th week of being signed off work since my knee surgery. Progress is not going well (I was only supposed to be off work for 6-8 weeks!) I hate being stuck at home for days on end without leaving my flat and have been spending way too much time ordering things online. I needed to find some inspiration and motivation to keep my spirits up, so I trawled through my Pinterest Quotes Board and found these.
Following my Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction surgery, I have spent alot of time looking at my leg and in particular the scars left behind.
I have four small ones from the keyhole side of the surgery, but from where I had a Hamstring Graft, I am left with a two inch long scar going down my shin. My thoughts instantly turn to Spring and Summer, can I wear skirts and dresses as I usually do or will my legs need to be hidden from the stares of others?
This quote has really made me think, yes as much as I will hate others looking at my leg, it is now a part of me and proves that I have fought to get over my injury so I will wear it with pride.
This sums my feelings up completely, I have felt down and sorry for myself recently, but once I'm recovered (hopefully soon) there is so much more I can do with my life and I have no excuses to stop myself from going further......I hope that I will take part in some form of charity walk and give a little back from what I have received.
I am taking these two quotes and anytime this week I start to reflect too much they will be a reminder to push on and keep going xx
