After so many months of bad things happening, finally I've gotten good news. Many many moons of tender care and therapy have brought my joints back around. My wrists are about three hundred times better then they were last November. Carpal Tunnle will still be a problem for me, but with moderation I believe I will be able to work past that.
I got my shoulder checked out today… I didn't fracture anything. What I <I> did </I> do was pull all the same muscles that got goofed up the when I slammed my back during ukemi practice. On top of that my shoulder is lightly irritated in the joint, so I will have to take Vioxx again ( ew..)
That's good news! I've come so far in the last four years since my riding accident.
Aikido has, oddly enough, never been all that uncomfortable for me on the physical level. The only time I was ever bothered by pain of any sort would be if a little too much pressure was applied to my wrists, or if I fell particularly hard. Though now, as I sit here and type, I understand slightly what my peers are going through. I suppose I push the physical discomfort from my mind.
I look forward to continuing to train, with mederation of course.
