I think I've been able to stay pretty upbeat about being on the shelf for almost six months now. Until now.

Over the weekend we had all the kids and grandkids at the house. That doesn't represent a huge crowd, since there's just the four of them plus the three grands. We went to a Tigers game, spent time at the lake, played games. Should have been a great time.

I'm not really saying it wasn't, but I spent too much time thinking about how my stomach looks like Carrie Underwood's right now. And it feels even bigger.

Went to PT yesterday. Gave them the rundown of everything that's happened since last time I was there, wasting everyone's time so Blue Cross would approve an MRI. He worked some around the knee and taped up the ACL. It hurts today.

There you go.

have you tried cycling? would that work any better with this injury? i know it’s not the same, but the daily fix is where you find it.

I could not have survived this long, without cross-training.. bike, swim, weights, walking the dog, calisthenics, etc etc..

"the punchline was clear: amongst over 1.2M people in the USA between 2011-2015, people who exercised had about 40% better mental health than people who didn't exercise, even after we controlled for a whole bunch of things including BMI, physical health, and sociodemographics"

I have no bicycle. Not sure the bending would help with the lingering ACL issue anyway. Hopefully I'm just a couple of weeks away now.

Ugh, I'm so sorry, Dave. I've felt this frustration before and I wish I had some words of wisdom, but there are none. It just plain sucks.

I'm so sorry Dave.  I'll never skip one just cause you're not upbeat.  Injury sucks and sometimes you just need to let yourself feel how you feel for a while.

May be volunteering with some organization like big brother would help. They say it makes you feel better to help others, last years boston marathon was one example.
