Over the last 5 years I have had 7 surgeries on my knees shoulders and hand and face. Now during this time I was accused of being addicted to pain medcine which was not true i only took what i was prescribed and never bought anyone off the street and and fmaily and friends just say that he always seem to be hurt. I always hear oh god here we go again hes hurt again. No one my injuries had been small ones like a sprained wrist or ankle they have been serious and have to have surgery to correct. Now I know giving up sports would be a easy out but sports are my life and they are my and they are my only realease in life. I am tured of the scrutiny I know have what I believe to be a torn rotator cuff(waiting on the MRI results) which will require surgery and I just dont know If i can deal with the scrutiny and firestorm when I tell my parents and family. All I can think about is suicide it will save everyone alot of grief myself included I just cant take the people accusing me of going after pain medicine and everything else wwhen I have serious injuries, I am scard and do not know what to do. Suicide would just end this for everyone and everyone could live their lives wondering if I got hurt and what i did this time. I am just lostView Thread
The test results for my shoulder came back and in the words of the doctors I have destroyed my rotator cuff. So my surgery is next week. The emotional strain is already starting to take its toll, the family is just all over me about my recovery and actually the procedure saying if I just quit doing anything i wouldnt need the surgery. My wife has just been in a mood as if I am making her do something that is way out of her way, getting snappy with me when the doctor said what I would need help with during recovery. Im not really considering suicide, one I am 2 scared to do it and secondly I cant imagine putting the people that care the most for me through that pain. Overall I am just mentally and physically exhausted from the scrutiny I receive. To give you an example about 6 or 7 weeks ago I pulled or tore my hamstring not sure which I was in a good deal of pain and limping and my wife and family just wrote it off thinking I was faking. Then about 3 days after the entire back side of my leg bruised from halfway down my calf to mid thigh, a deep purple bruise. Instead of them saying im sorry for not believing you, it was well you shouldnt have hurt yourself its your own fault. This is the type situations I deal with on a daily basis and I am just mentally drained and not sure where to go from here.View Thread
