Default injured and depressed

For the last two years I have been working out diligently to be able to play football. I found the perfect college program and transferred over for my sophomore year. Unfortunately I still have a nagging hamstring injury from high school and I got hurt and missed all of last season. All last semester I worked my butt off to get healthy and strong. My hamstring injury still didn't completely go away and on top of that I injured my shoulder lifting and I just found out I need surgery and I wont be able to participate in offseason workouts. As a result I am off the team. This may not sound like much to some of you but for a lot of my life I identified myself as a football player, I put my whole soul into it and it is what I love the most in life. I am driven to tears ever time I think about the fact that I probably will never play again. Now I don't know who I am, I don't have any confidence, and I just feel a profound emptiness in my life. I don't know if anyone can relate but I had to get this off my chest.

My Mood:

I can't directly relate to it, but I know the feeling trough another way...

I wanted to work out, get a good persistence and a nice body. I knew at the age of 16 I had hip troubles. I needed to keep myself in shape for upcoming surgery(ies) so I got working on it. After each surgery, I needed time to heal. And every time I finally started working out, I got in better shape and felt better, something else came up, which resulted in new surgeries... In the end of 2008 I finally got a metallic new hip. But my back has been injured due to many years of wrong usage...

I really want to work out again, I have gained about 13 kilo's (around 28 lbs) and it's so hard to get myself to work out again. After all, every time I was going OK, something bad came up.

Please give your body time to heal, even though it sucks... If you push it too hard, it might result in your body not getting better and so you can't ever play again...

Sending you many *hugs* and I hope your body will recover enough so you can "use" it again to do what you love to do: play football!
