Heh, Shihan told me I am an idiot... when a student asked what was wrong with my knee, he told her it was a cod ID-10-T issue. He called me a gimpatron and said "crutches Evey? REALLY? CRUTCHES?" and sat at his desk with his head in his hands for a little while. So it's nice to know he cares, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, heh.
They're going to focus a lot more on kumite (fighting) in the next few weeks, It's torture for me to not be able to be a part of that. D: I am a terrible fighter but it is my favorite thing to do.

Hoping that I can get an MRI and they can figure out what's up. Heh, one of the people at the dojo today showed me all of his surgery scars that this doctor I'm going to go see gave him. I said "woot, I get to have a manly scar? YESSSSS!"
I'm not a man, but I figure if I have to get a buncha gnarly scars, I might as well decide that they are cool and macho anyway, instead of crying about them or something. :p
Another instructor said "meniscus? Oh that's an easy surgery! Lemme go get a drill and a saw," and then he made some power drill sound effects.

How quickly this thread devolved into a grouphug/congratulations for what amounts to a failure in training.
It chafes my hide to no end when people wear their injuries like badges; and yes that is what i see going on here.

I think most of us are making light of our injuries to keep ourselves positive and upbeat. Commiserating and knowing you're not alone makes it easier to go through the whole ordeal.

I already knew the techniques I was helping new students and I admit to pushing it a little too much with the position but actually goin through the whole technique, big no no, I knew I wasn't strong enough for that
I've also been off crutches a total of 2 days and have pushe the walking thing. At the end of the day yea, I'm sore.
