@Swar, @Amethyst, i just checked on the inform from that incident, long list.

Well, acording to the inform i ended up with:

-Edema oseo en superficie articular del cóndilo femoral.

-Edema difuso en ambos cuernos de menisco

-Edema oseo focal subcortical

[at this point, i have lots of knee fluid goin around out of its place, nice]

-Subluxación lateral de rotula

-Micro fracturas intramedulares [the hell... ]

-Esguince de ligamento colateral interno de ambos [ligamentos] cruzados

-Hoffitis

-Peritendinitis rotuliana

 

._. It's amazing how much damage a person can take at once.

Acupuncture actually helps?

It helped me, i can't tell about other cases or other kind of injuries. But i was suprised about being able to walk normally after a couple of months of therapy with the "porcupine old man".

So you beleive in kindness and good vibes? I don't, but the acupuncture therapist was a generous nice grandpa who used to attend everyone in his home without charching a single penny. He did it for free! Used to gave you a great talk while you were sitting in silence [he told me you can't talk during acupuncture]... a really great man to learn from.

Sadly, he passed away the year after.

I never thougth 'ableism' was a thing.

 

Even if have been througth that myself. I have a knee problem [and other things, but the knee causes physical chronical pain, so its the heavier thing, i guess], a lesion that allways come back, repeats and hurt. But i've never considered myself disabled, i don't know, i feel it's just a think that makes me walk slower, wear a knee bandage to keep everything in place and take stairs one step at a time.

 

But if i think back, since i have to live with this, my life is so different.

I had that first "accident" when i was 18 and i was already in my first adult serious job [working in a government office], i treated it like it was a minor deal, cause the doctor did it himself. But i happened again 6 months later, then the next year. [I don't have the english skills so explain the accidents and injuries, sorry]

 

They send me to the medical care service for the employees, to open a file for "working/labor accident", cause it happened allways in the bus, way from home to work. The first they asked was "What kind of shoes were you wearing?" [track boots, non slippery] ...And i was like "Hold on, lady. Are you trying to find out a way to say this is my fault?!" At the end of the exam they said my employeer had to pay a compensation for the accident. Four years and other three accidents later, i ended up quitting that job and got any kind of compensation for those accidents that practily ruined my life. I used to run, skate and stuffs, but after that i locked myself and turned into a sedentary person. Not to mention the weigth gain that came with that, and the fact that it just did make things worst. Now any doctor who sees me for this injury says its my fault "you are too heavy for a person your height, go diet" [well, thanks to the food shortage in venezuela i lost almost all that weigth, lol]

 

A couple of years later, i decided to go serve a year of military service [for reasons i won't explain now]. I know, it was a stupid decision, but i had therapy and went better, i was healthy enough to run short races, i was really recovering.

But some way, i ended slippering and falling on my feet, from like 60cms. No need to say it was the worst accident ever had, i used a crutch and a wheelchair for first time in my life [and i can say i don't like that!]. I spent a whole week without taking a bath because i was wearing that cast on my leg and i was unable to bath myself normally.

 

Due to that i became friends with a sergeant who had a major injury in his arm, other officials used to make fun of his reconstructed shoulder, said he had a titanium shoulder but was unable to do some stuffs, and he needed special treatment.

He just not took me to the hospital when the accident happened, later he came to me with some advice about being off for an injury. For example, I learned to not take pain killers so ofteen, because pain can help you know when you are not all rigth to do certain things.

 

I became a useless soldier, the captain put me in the office to do boring and stressful office work, i had more responsabilities than any other soldier, serious things like i was a officer on command of planification. But even working that hard, the others thougth i was having special treatment, they used to call me "the civil soldier", and said i wasn't working as hard as them.

 

Officers from other units were also dicks to me. I hated to go out to other units, they were fucking mean.

-Stop there. Why are you going downstairs that way? What are you? Two years old? Cant you use stairs like a grown up?

-I can't fold this leg, i have a severe injury and i'm wearing a tigth bandage. It hurts, now, i got to go, sir.

And...they used to get mad because i did not obey their orders, threaten with get me in troubles with my unit captain.

 

Now that is over, but i still have to hear things like "you are too young for that kind of problems". Yes, i would like to have a healthy pair of legs, but i don't, now shut up.

 

I have learned to endure it. The medicine shortage is really hard rigth now, i really learned to live with out pain killers, but there are times when i need i them but i just shut up and rest, at least my family understands.
