I started out as a pretty hardcore trials rider back in the day. Recently I've been riding pretty much anything with two wheels, so I thought is was time to go back to my roots and put a chilled little trials edit together. Everything was going well until...
although i find that when i have a bad fall), i get a huuuge adrenalin rush, and my body goes into shock..because of this i feel nothing...20 minutes later that first rush wears off, my body comes out of shock and i am paining like anything.....could be the reason chris is so calm right after his fall?
"shock and awe" or "thats shocking" or "oh, that fence shocked me". Who cares? Quit acting like you know stuff. Many people or at least anyone who has ever taken any first aid training (even if its just the basic red cross first aid course or 12 year old boy scouts) knows what "shock" in the medical term means. The vast majority of the English speaking world uses the word "shock" on a daily basis in a vastly different way.
Good luck on a speedy recovery! I'm sure that you will do your therapy with a good PT, and keep plugging away with a positive attitude. Keep your stress levels down, as this will help you heal quicker. Keeping a balance of mind, body, and spirit is very beneficial not only with everyday life, but with recovery as well. I just started walking 6 weeks after surgery for a ruptured patellar tendon and torn meniscus. Make short and long term goals and acheive them! You have my prayers.
You can't keep a good man down
