Running with a TBPI

Post by Turbettg » Tue Dec 17, 2013 5:25 pm

Hi folks

New to forum so thought I'd say hi with a few pics.

My injury came about as the result of a car vs. motorbike situation in 2002. It took a while but I got back to endurance sports, in particular, running. But the pics will show some of the other stuff I get up to.

When I was recovering from injury I had over a year where I couldn't do any sport. For me it was a living hell. So this is really for anyone else going through that. It may not seem like it at this point, but stay focussed and you can achieve a heck of a lot.

Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc: LOBPI. I am 77 yrs old and never had a name for my injuries until 2004 when I found UBPN at age 66.

My injuries are: LOBPI on upper body and Cerebrael Palsy on the lower left extremities. The only intervention I've had is a tendon transplant from my left leg to my left foot to enable flexing t age 24 in 1962. Before that, my foot would freeze without notice on the side when wearing heels AND I always did wear them at work "to fit in" I also stuttered until around age 18-19...just outgrew it...no therapy for it. Also suffered from very very low self esteem; severe Depression and Anxiety attacks started at menopause. I stuffed emotions and over-compensated in every thing I did to "fit in" and be "invisible". My injuries were Never addressed or talked about until age 66. I am a late bloomer!!!!!

I welcome any and all questions about "My Journey".

This statement comes up a lot for me when explaining where I once was compared to where I am now, and I couldn't agree with it more. It is through endurance (focus) that we can and will achieve a heck of a lot. Thanks for sharing the excellent photos!
